## Academic Advisors

Advising is critical to academic success at Ohio State. Advisors at OSU assist in student growth and development by building meaningful educational plans which are compatible with their goals. Advising is a continuous and constant process built upon the basis of regular, accumulating contacts between advisor and advisee. Students in the Department of Mathematics are dual advised by an Academic Advisor and a Faculty Advisor.

Academic Advisor - The student's academic advisor is the person whom they can consult regarding course selection and the overall planning of their degree. Students should be in contact with their advisor regarding degree planning, academic policies, graduation, and personal/academic issues. Every major is assigned an Academic Advisor in the Department of Mathematics. Students can find their assigned advisor in Buckeye Link on the home screen. Students are able to visit their academic advisor by scheduling an appointment in OnCourse or during their Walk-in hours.

Faculty Advisor - Students are paired with a faculty member in the department to provide additional support. Faculty advisors can provide further information about coursework, support in career exploration and planning, and discuss graduate school options. Students unable to identify their faculty advisor should contact their academic advisor for assistance.
