Advising Appointments

Current Ohio State students should schedule advising appointments in advance through OnCourse. Appointments allow advising staff time to review your student record, research topics related to your appointment reason, and prepare materials for you. Typically, appointments can be scheduled within the same week. Zoom and phone appointments are available as are a limited number of in-person appointments. If you need assistance scheduling, call 614-292-1012 or stop by 100 Knowlton Hall during business hours.

Schedule an appointment

Designated drop-in hours are available during autumn and spring semesters for brief questions only, and not for a review of your record, scheduling, degree projections or graduation. Drop-in hours will be announced at the beginning of each semester.

Current students can access information about their academic record through OnCourse, by reviewing their degree audit, and via their Student Center.
