When should I schedule an advising appointment?

We suggest students meet with their advisor twice a year. Registration pins change every fall term and are issued to students in spring term. An easy way to remember when to schedule an advising appointment is to think of Halloween, Valentine’s Day, and May Day. Student-Athletes, students using Disability Access Services, and students utilizing Veterans Benefits need a new registration pin each term.

COVID- 19 Update

All advising appointments with be through Zoom or over the phone. Your advisor will send you a Zoom link to your OSU email or call you (the number may show as "unknown" or "no caller ID") at your scheduled appointment time.
