Advising Basics



The purpose of the Ohio State Newark Advising Office is to facilitate students' successful enrollment by:

  • Familiarizing students with OSU curriculum options and academic resources
  • Helping students identify their academic goals and make plans to achieve them
  • Processing enrollment transactions, petitions, and applications in a timely manner
  • Working at the campus and university levels to help enhance and develop curriculum and enrollment procedures to meet students' needs
  • Helping students take full advantage of university programs, activities, and organizations in order to derive maximum benefit from the university experience

How will I meet and get to know my advisor?

  • You will first meet the advising staff at your Placement Testing and Orientation. They are an integral part of the process as you move from applicant status to student status.
  • You will be assigned to an advisor according to the major you have chosen. An advisor will also be teaching your University Survey course, EXP 1100. This is a great opportunity to begin a working relationship with the advising staff.
  • Academic advisors are available by appointment throughout the calendar year. They care about your success! Call 740-366-9333 to set up an appointment.
