    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

If you have been working with an advisor, and would like to continue doing so, you may schedule outside of your alpha assignment.

    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.

    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.
