CSE, CIS and pre-CSE Advising

Undergraduate Advising Office  

NOTE: All CSE advisors are working regular business hours from home. We are available over the summer!

You are encouraged to contact your assigned advisor via e-mail with quick questions or concerns regarding your academic plan or other scheduling issues. You can also make a 30-minute Zoom appointment for a longer conversation (instructions below):

​***How to Schedule an Appointment***

Appointments are available for CSE/CIS majors and pre-CSE students only. These are 30-minute meetings that are appropriate for anything requiring long-term planning (such as graduation plans, financial aid appeals, reinstatement petitions, ROTC forms, etc.) and concerns about academic progress. Please prepare in advance for your appointment as much as possible (run a degree audit, have your schedule projection draft, etc.) and be prepared to take notes.

OnCourse is the website you should use to schedule an appointment with your assigned advisor (http://go.osu.edu/oncourse) All appointments will be held virtually using Zoom. Please e-mail your advisor if you experience difficulty when scheduling.

Virtual Zoom drop-ins are not available over the summer.
