If you are an prospective Transfer student, you can reach out to an advisor in the major you will be.  The websites for advising are listed under “Advisors for Returning and Transfer Engineering Students” on the bottom of this page.

Scheduling an appointment:

If you have attended a START Orientation session for First Year Students this summer, you will assigned an academic advisor in September before classes start.  You will also be enrolled in a First-Year Engineering Students Canvas Course . This Canvas Studio is a non-credit, non-graded, free site designed to help you navigate your first year at Oregon State University. You will find information on advising, career and major exploration, clubs and extra-curricular activities and gain the skills to successfully explore your major, the College of Engineering and OSU.  Canvas is also where you will schedule appointments during Fall, Winter, and Spring Terms.

The Office of Student Services (Johnson 114) is open from 8:00am-5:00pm Monday-Friday.

 If you would like to contact an advisor please use the email links below or call 541-737-5236.
