Undergraduate Advising

The College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences provides academic advising for undergraduates who have declared, or are considering, a major in Earth Sciences or Environmental Sciences, or who are interested in one of our five minors. Here are some advising tips to help maximize your advising experience at OSU and some useful links to advising related resources.

You are welcome to meet with your advisor at any time during the year. Advisors work together with students on:

  • Discussing and clarifying academic and career goals
  • Navigating university rules, regulations, and processes
  • Course planning and tracking of degree requirements
  • Consulting about academic challenges and planning decisions
  • Providing targeted referrals to broader campus services

Meet with an Advisor

To make an appointment with an advisor, call 541-737-1201 or use your advisor's online calendar which is linked below. Please note that advisor assignments are alphabetically based on your last name. If you have been working with an advisor, and would like to continue doing so, you may schedule outside of your alpha assignment.

*** Brand new Ecampus students MUST follow these directions on how to set up your initial advising appointment.

Registration PINs

Only your advisor can give you a registration PIN. All first-year freshmen must meet with an advisor each term to receive their PIN. Continuing and transfer students must meet with an advisor during Spring Term to receive a PIN, which is active for the following academic year. NCAA athletes and students eligible for early registration through Disability Access Services will need a new PIN every term.

Drop-In Hours

Drop-In Hours are intended for quick questions, registration adjustment, policy questions/concerns, crisis/time sensitive/emergency situations, etc.

Check-in at any time during the listed times and you will be seen. Some exceptions may apply if all advisors have meeting obligations.

  • Week 1:
    8:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday
  • Week 2-11:
    8:30 - 9:00 am Monday through Friday
    4:00 - 4:30 pm Monday through Friday
  • Week 7:
    8:30 am to 4:30 pm Friday additional hours

Drop-in times are not for receiving your PIN, registration planning, long term planning, ROTC plan review, financial aid appeal planning, or similar needs. You should make a full advising appointment for those needs.

Release of Student Information

Advisors are restricted by Federal law (FERPA) from releasing any information about a student's class schedule, grades, transcripts, advising checklist, or other specific information to anyone without written permission from that student. A "Consent for Student Release of Information" form may be obtained from a CEOAS academic advisor and must be signed by the student in order to release designated information to other parties. Advisors may give out general information such as what resources are available at OSU, what classes and majors are offered, and what general strategies are appropriate to follow in certain situations.
