Mandatory Advising

Mandatory Advising for Newly Admitted Business Students: Fall 2022

Congratulations on your admission to the Shidler College of Business!  We look forward to welcoming you and working with you to achieve your academic goals.  

Mandatory advising for newly admitted business students is a completely online asynchronous format (students can complete on their own time by the deadline, with no specified meeting day/time).  This is a one-time requirement and you will not have further mandatory advising requirements in the future.

However, this does not prohibit you from meeting with an advisor if you have further questions after the completion of your online quiz.*

Don’t forget to download a copy of the Shidler BBA Student Handbook, located in the Resources section of Laulima.  Your access to the Laulima site will be removed in December 2022.

Take note of the website: as there are many helpful resources that you may need to access in the future.  

If you have any questions please email 

Requirements to fulfill Mandatory Advising include:

  1. The Mandatory Advising Quiz (located in Laulima) is due on September 30, 2022 at 11:59pm HST.  No late submissions will be accepted.
  2. You will have a maximum of three attempts (unlimited time); the quiz is out of 20 questions and your score will correspond with a registration hold (for Spring 2023), as follows:
    -15 to 20 questions correct: no hold
    -13 to 14 questions correct: 1-day hold
    -11 to 12 questions correct: 2-day hold
    - 0 to 10 questions correct: 3-day hold
  3. Complete an online evaluation, which will be emailed to you (every Friday) after completion of your quiz, with a one week deadline.
    -A one-day delay in registration will result if the online evaluation is not completed.
  4. Additional non-scored requirements include:
    -Review of the video presentation and/or the PDF copy (located in Laulima Resources);
    -Review of your STAR GPS and graduation pathway to ensure accuracy and an understanding of remaining requirements.

*You are also welcome to meet one-on-one with an academic advisor if you have any questions or would like to seek further clarification!  Please note that meeting with an advisor will not fulfill the mandatory advising quiz requirement.  Please call (808) 956-8215 to schedule an appointment.

Failure to complete all requirements will result in a delay in next semester's registration.

All Laulima quizzes must be completed by September 30, 2022 at 11:59pm HST to receive the online evaluation, which must be completed by October 7, 2022 at 11:59pm HST.
