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.
Phase 1 of Priority Registration for continuing students is here. If you are running into any difficulty with registration, click the help image on the left to access our Registration Troubleshooting Checklist.

We are excited to welcome you to OSU! All new students need to attend an winter term START orientation session that includes advising and registration. You can learn more about this orientation, including how to get sign up for a session here.
Current UESP Students:The second half of fall term is upon us. That means priority registration for winter 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.
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.
