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. ECE advising continues to be available virtually until further notice.

Check out our virtual drop-in hours which are now posted on the sidebar if you are using a PC or on the bottom of this page if you are using a smart phone.

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 appointment below). 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 only shows available appointments for the next 10 business days. If there is nothing available, you need to continue to check back. For instructions on how to schedule an appointment, please read the walkthrough guide. See link to schedule appointment below.

When scheduling an appointment, you can continue to select the appointment reason that most relates to the purpose of your appointment.

All ECE advising appointments will occur virtually via CarmenZoom. As part of the University’s response to COVID-19, 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 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.
