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.
The deadlines to S/U and Withdraw from Individual Classes are this Friday, February 23rd. Click the hyperlinks in the previous sentence to learn more. Current UESP students, if you are considering either, come see us! We are having drop-in times in 102 Waldo Hall this week (see below) specifically to discuss these options with students. If you have an advising appointment scheduled for this week, you can also discuss S/U or Withdrawal with your advisor then.
Wednesday, February 21 - 1:00-5:00 pm
Thursday, February 22 - 1:00-5:00 pm
Friday, February 23 - 8:00 am-5:00 pm
It is almost week 5, and February is upon us. Those two things mean priority registration for spring 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, 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 do not schedule appointments by web or email.
Once you’ve scheduled your appointment, here’s how to prepare for it…
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 with a UESP Advisor.
For students starting with or transferring into UESP in summer 2017 beyond, we now have a 4-term limit. Click the image to learn more.
