Where is the advising office located?

Office Location: 2070 Neil Ave. Hitchcock Hall Room 025
Email: eng-advisor@osu.edu

When should I schedule an appointment?

Appointments can last up to 30 minutes at a time. You should schedule an appointment for topics like:

  • Learning about the Honors program and undergraduate research
  • Talking through decisions and weighing options
  • Planning your courses and scheduling
  • Exploring majors and minors
  • Reviewing petitions and evaluating coursework
  • Checking on your progress and performance

To schedule an appointment: 

  • Go to OnCourse.
  • Select "Schedule Academic Advising."
  • Select "Engineering Academic Success and Engagement."
  • Select the reason you want to meet with an advisor.
  • Select the location "Engineering Academic Success and Engagement - 025 Hitchcock Hall."
  • Choose an advisor.
  • Select an available time.
  • Add any additional comments you want your advisor to review and prepare for your appointment.
  • Select "Confirm Appointment."
  • If you have any issues scheduling an appointment, please contact eng-advisor@osu.edu.

Keep in mind that, while we try to accommodate requests, our advisors sometimes do not have availability for a few weeks due to student appointments. This happens particularly during times when students schedule classes. Plan ahead and schedule your appointment well in advance!

Walk-in appointments will be the first two weeks of each semester.

 

When should I email my advisor?

Emailing your advisor with questions you have is another great way to connect.

Always contact your advisor directly through your OSU Buckeyemail. Advisors are not able to respond to academic questions to an external email address, due to FERPA. Also, external email addresses may be filtered into your advisor's junk folder. OSU Buckeyemail is the only way to communicate electronically with your advisor.

Which advisor should I work with?

Each of our advisors has his/her own personal style and we encourage students to work with the advisor who best suits their needs. Our advisors also work with special populations, so choose an advisor who specializes in your advising group.
