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.

Welcome to Fall Term 2018

We are excited to welcome so many new students to OSU and UESP.  All new UESP students are invited to join us at our Fall Welcome Social on Tuesday, September 18 outside of Waldo Hall at 1:30 pm

Declared, but thinking about a change in direction?

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.
