COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Response

Our top priority at NIU is the health and well-being of our campus community. In response to the rapidly changing developments related to the global outbreak of COVID-19, the university has announced that classes will continue with virtual instruction. More information on this can be found on NIU's COVID-19 webpage. We have also adapted our services to a non-face-to-face format. As our goal is to ensure that there are no gaps in services, we will be monitoring email throughout this period. Please contact us if you have questions or need additional information.

We are here for you: Special message from Dean Rajagopalan to NIU Business students about COVID-19.



Your academic and career success is still our top priority and we are here to support you. Finance advisor Christy Cunningham will be available for advising questions and appointments via email. Please contact advisor, at ccunningham@niu.edu with questions and or to schedule a virtual appointment.
