Hilltopper Advising Center

Student sitting with an adviser

The Ohio University Chillicothe Hilltopper Advising Center is located in Room 270, Bennett Hall. We are your central resource for academic advising on campus. The Hilltopper Advising Center can help you with:

  • Selecting courses or changing your schedule.
  • Exploring and declaring, or changing a major.
  • Degree planning and goal setting.
  • Getting a DARS report, a “what-if” DARS, and how to read it.
  • Questions regarding academic majors/programs and minors, courses,
    professors, etc.
  • Academic issues or concerns.

    Additionally, we can assist you with:
     
  • Study tips and college success strategies.
  • Campus resources.
  • Provide informational websites.
  • Offer advice and encouragement.

Special events to watch for:

  • “How to Choose a Major” workshops - Get help with determining your best career
    match. Take the Self Directed Search, a nationally recognized assessment and get immediate feedback from our advisors. Workshops are hosted in the fall and spring semesters. Determining your career path and establishing a goal is a big contributor to academic success. Watch for email and campus announcements.
  • Ohio University Chillicothe Majors Fair - This is our biggest event of the year. You have
    the chance to visit with representatives from Ohio University Chillicothe and Main campus majors at one time, in one location. Learn about majors we have to offer, minors, courses, and special programs that are available to you. Visit with representatives from Career Services, Study Abroad and more. Access what-if DARS on site for immediate feedback from major representatives. Watch for email and campus announcements.
  • Advising Roadshow - Our advisors go on the road! We take time to visit with students where they meet, in the Stevenson Center. Advisors are available throughout the semester in a more casual setting to discuss academic related issues, but also just to chat. Each week, we have a theme or topic to get the conversation started. We look forward to getting to know you better, so that we can be that cheerleader and provide the support you need for academic success. Watch for email and campus announcements.

We do more than just help you pick classes. We help you make informed, reasoned decisions that affect your college success. We are here to help!


Academic advisors are generally assigned based on the major that you want to pursue. However, the advisors in the Hilltopper Advising Center are here to assist any student with the various majors and other questions they may have.
