CEOAS Academic Advisors are working remotely and available to students by phone or email. Advising appointments will be conducted by Zoom or phone.

The College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences provides academic advising for undergraduates who have declared, or are considering, a major in Climate Science, Environmental Sciences, Geography & Geospatial Science, Geology, or Ocean Science, or who are interested in one of our minors. Here are advisor/advisee expectations 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. Many students must make an appointment each term with their advisor to get a new registration PIN (Honors College, first-year students, some receiving disability access services, receiving veteran benefits, athletes). Everyone must have an advising appointment to get a registration PIN for Fall term registration. You are expected to have a draft course plan laid out for the coming academic year in order to receive that Fall term PIN.
