The academic advisors are experts on university policies and the EECS programs and are here to help you achieve your goals for school and beyond. Your advisors will help you make a plan, get involved in extracurricular activities, and advise you about what to do when you are struggling with a class.
Make a plan
Before you meet with an advisor it is a good idea to fill out a plan in MyDegrees. MyDegrees is a tool to help students plan for their academic goals and track their progress throughout their OSU experience. It is used for course planning, advising, and degree verification.
College is more than just taking classes. Becoming involved will help prepare you for the job market or graduate school. Additionally, building a community of friends, colleagues and mentors will provide you with support through school and make connections for jobs and other opportunities.
The School of EECS has many opportunities for students to get experience working with industry, become involved in research, participate in competitions like the solar car challenge, or serve as mentors or leaders.
Get help with a class
Seek help early if you are struggling with a class and an advisor can help you navigate the options. There are also many campus groups that provide academic support. If you are considering withdrawing from a course or switching to the satisfactory/unsatisfactory grade basis, read through the policies and guidelines.
