For students currently enrolled in one of the below programs, you can schedule an appointment with your advisor by calling the Office of Student Affairs, Equity and Inclusion front desk at 614-292-4041.
Academic advisors in the College of Nursing direct course scheduling for individual students and serve as a vital connection between the student and university resources and information. Academic advisors help students connect to:
- An academic major
- General education curriculum
- Degree options
- Academic remediation
- Out-of-class activities
- Career services
- Study abroad options
- Non-academic support services
In addition, academic advisors are experts at explaining how things work at the university, including policies and procedures with regard to registrations, financial aid, petitions and appeals and graduation. An overview of such policies and procedures can be found here. They can be trusted to provide all of this with accuracy, in confidence, and at the right time. Knowing the student as an individual allows the academic advisor to consider the student’s skills, abilities and interests. In this important role, the advisor encourages students to assume responsibility for their education by helping them develop planning, problem-solving and decision-making skills.
