Our Academic Advisors are here to help students strategize clear pathways to their educational and career goals.


  • Help you identify opportunities to help you gain experiences and skills in your field of study or career path
  • Help you to understand how what you’re learning in the classroom connects to your long-term goals
  • Help connect you to OSU resources that help you further understand and navigate your educational and career pathways.

Students can connect with an Advisor via email, phone, or by scheduling a one-on-one advising appointment. Remote/Zoom appointments are available with all our advisors!
