Advising is...

Your conversations with your advisor are based on your goals, challenges, and strengths.  Topics that you might discuss with your advising include: 

  • Academic & professional goals
  • Questions about policies and requirements
  • Learn about academic culture at OSU
  • Academic challenges and opportunities
  • Talk about course registration
  • Choosing a major course of studies
  • Strategies & resources to get higher grades

Students and advisors work together to discover your goals, plan for the future, identify challenges and opportunities, and make a way forward. Learn more by reviewing the Advising Vision, Mission, Goals and Commitments and the Expectations of Advising.

Academic advising is part of your educational experience and supports your academic, personal, and professional development.  Learn more by reviewing the First-Year Advising Syllabus and the Learning Goals for Graduates.
