The Importance of Academic Advising

Your academic adviser is an important resource for your success at Ohio University. Your adviser is knowledgeable about your major, as well as about college and University requirements. Advisers can help with course selection, provide information on internships, discuss possible careers, and suggest graduate or professional schools. If advisers do not have an answer to your question, they can refer you to the appropriate office or person who can help you in that area. Students are required to meet with their advisers prior to enrollment each term to ensure they are making sufficient academic progress.
