Academic Advising

Advising at OSU-Cascades

Our Mission: Oregon State University academic advising is a teaching and learning process dedicated to student success. Academic advising engages students in developing a plan to realize their educational, career and life goals.

Academic advisors assist you in long and short-term academic and career planning. They provide information on curricula, educational and experiential options within your college and the university, schedule planning, and help interpret university and departmental requirements.

Advisors are assigned by the major you have declared.  

Check with the OSU-Cascades Enrollment Services if you are unsure who your major academic advisor is.

OSU-Cascades follows the OSU Academic Advising mission, vision, and values. See the Academic Advising Handout for more information on advisee and advisor responsibilites at OSU.

(Please note: If you are interested in applying to OSU-Cascades, please contact an admissions advisor for admission and program questions. New students, including transfer students, begin their academic advising process by registering to attend a required new student orientation where they will meet with an academic advisor.)

University Exploratory Studies Program

Check out the exploratory student website for information on how to explore and decide on a major at OSU-Cascades.

By working in partnership with OSU-Cascades Career Development Center and their advisor, undecided students will explore personal interests, goals, and values, with the goal of selecting a major that incorporates all of these important elements. A list of exploratory classes in OSU-Cascades majors is available to students who are undecided and desire to "test out" different areas.
