Office of Academic Advising

Academic advisors are professional staff members dedicated to student success.

What do Academic Advisors do?

Academic advisors are caring professionals with valuable information! They are full-time professionals working in partnership with students to help them complete a degree or an educational goal. Advisors can help you:

  • interpret placement test results and build an appropriate first-semester schedule
  • explore educational and career opportunities, set appropriate goals, and devise strategies for accomplishing those goals
  • understand the requirements of Ohio State majors
  • monitor your progress toward a degree
  • work through challenges by answering questions, providing support and connecting you to campus resources
