Academic Advisors

ECE Undergraduate Academic Advising

The ECE advising team is dedicated to supporting students. We encourage students to make appointments with advisors to make the most out of their educational experience here at OSU and to ensure they are on track for graduation.

Scheduling an Undergraduate Appointment

OSU students interested in the major or students in the department should make an appointment with an ECE advisor (See link to make an appointment). If you are a prospective (non-OSU student) or returning OSU student (not taken classes for a year or longer) please email an advisor with your availability.

Appointments with Advisors are scheduled online. The online scheduling system (OnCourse) only shows available appointments for the next 10 business days. If there is nothing available, you need to continue to check back. Only virtual drop-in advising is available the first two weeks of Autumn or Spring semester. See virtual walk-ins hours on the side menu bar (it is on the bottom of the page if you are on this page on a cellphone).

When scheduling an appointment, you will be prompted to schedule a service. Please select from the following options:

  • Long term course/Schedule Degree planning
  • Graduation
  • Academic Status/Academic Success Appointment
  • Add or Drop a Class
  • Explore/Declare Major (use this reason if your major is outside of ECE)

Please indicate in the "comments" section what you would like to discuss with an academic advisor.

Choose a date and view available times.

Schedule your appointment and review the details. You will receive a confirmation email with your appointment details.

All ECE advising appointments will occur virtually via CarmenZoom. We ask that students do not come to the ECE office for their appointment.  Please also provide us with your phone number in case we have technical difficulties with Carmen Zoom. If you do not have internet Carmenzoom will also allow you the ability to call in. Click here for information on how to use Carmen Zoom.

Additional information will be sent by your advisor on the day of your appointment with specific information on how to join your meeting. Once you join, you will be in a waiting room – your advisor will add you to the meeting when they are ready to begin.
