Welcome to advising

Welcome to advising

Arts and Sciences Advising provides comprehensive degree planning for undergraduate students. We also provide Pre-Health and Pre-Law advising.

In response to the ongoing health concerns across the city and state, advisors in the College of Arts and Sciences will continue with virtual and phone appointments as the preferred mode for academic advising. However, advisors will accommodate special requests for in-person appointments for those who need such meetings. The best way to make a virtual or phone advising appointment is online at go.osu.edu/oncourse. If online scheduling is not available for you or your major, please follow any major department-specific instructions you have received from your advisor in order to schedule a phone or virtual appointment.

If you are unable to make an appointment online, please call 614-292-6961 or email askascadvising@osu.edu. When emailing or leaving a voicemail message, please be sure to indicate the purpose of the appointment and the best phone number and/or email address at which to reach you. Email and voicemail messages are monitored 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding university holidays.

To request an in-person appointment with your advisor, please send an email message to your advisor’s Ohio State email address.

If you have scheduled an in-person appointment but you feel ill and/or are experiencing flu-like or COVID symptoms, please contact your advisor to change your meeting to a phone or zoom appointment. We appreciate your help to stop the spread of illness!

Thank you for your patience as we address the continuing health and safety concerns created by COVID-19.

First-Year Seminars

New first-year students have the opportunity to register for first-year seminars which provide an introduction to academic areas, research and frontier areas of scholarly pursuit and contact with faculty in small group settings. The intimate and discussion-based nature of the courses encourages participation and critical thinking as well as a fun way to explore new subjects like graphic novels, tabloid journalism, cookbooks and outer space.
