Advising For Prospective Students

Hopefully you have met an advisor during the application or placement testing process. If not, you will meet with an academic advisor for the first time during new student orientation. The advisor will help you select classes for the first time, based on placement test results, intended major, and course availability. (All new students will register for classes during new student orientation.) 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 each and every semester while attending Ohio University Chillicothe.

Special events to watch for:

➢ 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.
