Academic Support & Advising
Every degree-seeking student at OSU is assigned an advisor to help them successfully complete their plan of study. OSU advisors are knowledgeable in the degree programs their advisees are pursuing, and can guide them to develop their semester schedule of courses, as well as keep them on an efficient path of study. Upon admission to a program of study, students will receive an email notifying them of their assigned advisor, contact information, and directions for setting an advising appointment. If you did not receive advisor information, please contact the advising office in the respective college for the degree you are seeking.
The following are student support services which are available to all students, including online students.
