Advising season for fall semester is here already! At Ohio University, in order to schedule, you must meet with your major adviser to have your hold removed. As a transfer student, this may not have been the case at your previous college or university. In order to help make the most of your advising appointment you should:

  • Refresh and print your DARS to bring along.
  • Look over the course offerings for classes you need to see if they are available.
  • Map out times that you are unable to schedule classes due to work, sports, or other commitments.
  • Consider your interests outside of your major. This can help with choosing Tier or liberal arts requirements.
  • Add some of your first choice classes to your enrollment shopping cart. This can be changed as needed.

All of these things will help your appointment go smoothly and allow for you and your adviser to choose the best courses for your major and your schedule.

Also let your adviser know of any transient courses you may be taking over the summer to avoid duplicating classes. If you have questions regarding transient credit, please check out the College of Arts & Sciences page on transient study.

(Keep in mind that I might also be listed as your adviser on your DARS and am very willing to help, but your faculty adviser will need to remove your registration hold).
