University Academic Advising Council

Established by the University Academic Advising Council, Ohio University recognizes academic advising to be a central element of the educational experience of its undergraduate students.

The next UAAC meeting is October 12, 2016, from 3:05-5 p.m. in Schoonover 450.

Advising is a collaborative relationship for which advisors and students share responsibility and through which students create sound educational plans consistent with their academic, career, and personal goals. Advisors are responsible for being accessible and responsive to students, and for providing accurate, timely information.

Students are responsible for being prepared for advising sessions, and for understanding university and major requirements.
