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: Phase 1 of Priority Registration for fall 2018 for returning students has started. Your registration date will fall sometime between now and June 4. If you haven’t done so already, stop by 102 Waldo or call 541-737-8144 to schedule your mandatory 30-minute advising appointment.

Also, we will have advisors available on Monday, June 4 from 1:00-4:00 pm if you've had your advising appointment but still need help with registration.

Wait…what? We register for fall in May?
Wait…what? We register for fall in May?Yep, currently enrolled students register for fall classes prior to the end of the term. 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…
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.
