As a student currently enrolled in one of our programs, you can schedule an appointment with your advisor by calling the Office of Student Affairs and Success 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 with:
- An academic major
- General education curriculum
- Degree options
- Academic remediation
- Out-of-class activities
- Career services
- Study abroad options
- Non-academic support services
Academic advisors are experts at explaining how things work at the university, including policies and procedures about registrations, financial aid, petitions and appeals and graduation. They can be trusted to provide all of this accurately, confidentially and timely. Knowing you as an individual allows the academic advisor to consider your skills, abilities and interests in making these decisions. In this important role, the advisor encourages you to assume responsibility for your education by helping you develop planning, problem-solving and decision-making skills. You can log in to your Buckeyelink account to view your assigned advisor’s name and contact information.
Peer advisors are current BSN students who have been trained by the Office of Student Affairs and Success staff to work with pre-nursing and BSN students. They can assist students with many scheduling related questions including:
- How to schedule classes using Buckeyelink
- How to search for General Education Courses
- How to read their degree audit and utilize the information to work toward degree requirements
- General questions regarding BSN coursework and scheduling
Please note when calling for an appointment, students may be scheduled with a peer advisor.
