University Exploratory Studies Program (UESP) is the academic home for students who have chosen to explore their options prior to deciding on a major. UESP is very similar to OSU's academic colleges in that we provide academic support to assure that our students are making satisfactory progress toward a degree. We offer a comprehensive range of services to help students make informed decisions about their academic coursework and potential majors they're considering.
Current UESP Students: It's almost week 5, and we are fast approaching Cinco de Mayo. Those two things mean priority registration for spring term classes is just around the corner, and we need to get going with advising. If you haven’t done so already, stop by 102 Waldo or call 541-737-8144 to schedule your mandatory 30-minute advising appointment. We get booked out very quickly in the fall, so call or stop by within the next week to ensure that you get an appointment before your priority registration date. Please note that we cannot schedule appointments by email.

Even if you are not 100% sure you are returning in the fall, make an appointment to come see us, so we can discuss options. It is better to register now and drop your classes later than it is to wait and try to get your classes in September
Once you’ve scheduled your appointment, here’s how to prepare for it…
If we see evidence that you’ve done some pre-planning or if you print out and complete the Exploration To-Do List, you will get you a raffle ticket for a $50 gift card to the OSU Beaver Store. If you do both, we will give you two tickets!
We look forward to seeing you soon!
It is a very common experience for students to realize that their initial major choice is not the right fit. If that is your experience, don't panic! UESP is here to help you figure out which major direction at OSU is right for you. You're welcome to switch to UESP or even just consult with one of our advisors. Either way just requires that you make an appointment. Call our office at 541-737-8144 or stop by 102 Waldo Hall to schedule o
