Advising For Current Students

You will be required to meet with an academic advisor in order to register for classes. Students attending Ohio University have a registration hold placed on their account for Fall and Spring semesters. This is called an “advance registration hold” and is designed to ensure you get the help you need selecting your classes. 

For subsequent semesters, you will see your assigned academic advisor. If you do not know who your advisor will be, you are welcome to see an advisor in the Hilltopper Advising Center. You are strongly encouraged to see an academic advisor several times a semester while attending Ohio University Chillicothe.

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.
