Undergraduate Advising


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.

Drop-In Advising

Drop-in advising hours are for current OSU students experiencing registration issues, seeking S/U approvals, requesting course overrides, changing into CS or ECE, adding a CS minor or Cybersecurity Certificate and/or other questions that can be answered in 10 minutes or less. Registration PINs will not be issued during virtual-drop in advising. Students coming to drop-in hours will meet with the advisor that is currently available.

Zoom drop-in advising hours will be conducted using Zoom and requires internet and audio access. Students who do not have access to Zoom are encouraged to email their question to EECSUndergrad.info@oregonstate.edu or schedule an advising appointment.

Make a plan

MyDegrees is a tool to help you plan for your academic goals and track your progress throughout their Oregon State experience for course planning, advising, and degree verification. You must fill your MyDegrees Planner out to the next 4 terms in order to receive your registration PIN prior to your appointment with your advisor. You can fill out your planner by going to MyOregonState and then accessing your MyDegrees where there will be a Planner tab next to your Checklist tab.

Get involved

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 by reaching out to your instructor or getting help from an advisor to navigate your 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.
