Find an Advisor
Each college has professional advisors who listen to students and provide appropriate information about academic options, degree programs, and University resources. Academic advisors are interested in student learning and development and will help create educational plans consistent with academic, career, and personal goals. Advisors assist students with course registration, early career coaching, and co-curricular engagement. Advising is a collaborative process and is best when students are fully informed and engaged.
Find Your Assigned Advisor
Your advisor is listed in My OHIO Student Center in the Advisor box. Your advisor's name and contact information will be listed in the column on the right side of the screen. Your advisor is also listed on the first page of your DARS report.
If no advisor is listed in your My OHIO Student Center, contact your college student services office so they can get you connected to the appropriate advisor.
