Appointments for Current Ohio State Students |

Academic advisors are professional staff members who are trained to help undergraduate students navigate the complexities of the University, the academic curriculum in your major, and serve as a resource for you during your time as a student.  You can expect your advisor to provide accurate, helpful information in regard to degree planning and curriculum requirements, refer you to appropriate University resources when necessary, and help you understand your role and responsibilities as an undergraduate student at The Ohio State University. You should plan to meet with your advisor regularly in order to review your progress, share any concerns, and to be sure you are staying on track. Learn more about academic advising at Ohio State.

Advance appointments are preferred. This allows advising staff time to review your student record, research topics related to your appointment reason and to prepare materials for you. Appointments are available throughout the week but do require advance scheduling. Schedule an appointment online or stop by 100 Knowlton Hall during business hours and one of our student assistants will provide scheduling help. Typically, appointments can be scheduled within the same week.

Walk-in hours (autumn and spring semesters) are for brief questions only, and not for a review of your entire record, scheduling, degree projections or graduation.

Current students can access information about their academic record through OnCourse, Degree Audit and your Student Center.

Interested in changing your major to a Knowlton School program?

Attend one of our autumn semester major change info sessions (for current Ohio State students). These sessions will include a brief overview presented by a staff member to outline the admission to major process, foundation coursework and time-to-degree projections. After the overview, one or more current students will give you a tour of the key spaces in Knowlton Hall and provide insight on the life of an architecture, landscape architecture or planning student. Plan for a total of 50 minutes.

RSVP for an Architecture/Landscape Architecture info session

RSVP for a City and Regional Planning info session

Application to Major

Current Ohio State students who are pre-majors or who have taken the foundation courses may apply to the Architecture or Landscape Architecture major as soon as both Arch/Larch 2300 and Arch/Larch 2310 are complete (applications may be submitted during the term in which enrollment in these courses occurs). The application includes two components: (1) an online submission (available by July 1 for SU17 applicants) and (2) a portfolio from 2310. Applications are reviewed every semester for admission to the major for the following autumn semester. The application deadline is Noon of the last day of finals week. Submit portfolios to the Knowlton School Student Services office (100 KN) by the same deadline per your studio instructor's guidelines. (Please note: Students who have not been officially admitted to one of these majors will not be able to schedule Arch 2410 or 5610 OR Larch 2920, 2410 and 2420 via BuckeyeLink at the initial enrollment appointment. Please review these courses and add them to your Schedule Planner. Once students receive official notification about admission to the major, students will be asked to confirm their seat. Once a staff member changes the major on your record, students will then have access to add the relevant major courses online.)

City and Regional Planning does not require an application, and any current Ohio State student in good academic standing may declare the major by meeting with an academic advisor.

Additional information for current Ohio State students who wish to explore a major in architecture, landscape architecture or city and regional planning is available in the Admissions area of our website.
