  Behavioral & Health Sciences Advising Center (BAC)
One of our goals is to promote successful transitions for students who wish to pursue academic majors with the College. Academic advising is the best way to select and enroll in the appropriate courses for a chosen major. In addition, students are introduced to leadership opportunities through University-wide creative and social activities.  We encourage a sense of community and ownership for students through early referral to faculty advisors, departmental and professional organizations and MTSU academic support services.

All students check in at the Behavioral and Health Sciences Advising Center (BAC) in the Cason-Kennedy Nursing Bldg. (CKNB) Room 108
