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 Students: It's Time for Advising!

If you are currently in UESP, see your OSU email for message from us for instructions how to get your mandatory advising appointment.  That message includes your assigned advisor's name, which you can also find listed in MyDegrees on the Degree Checklist See the image to the left for a visual.

Prior to scheduling your appointment, make sure you go into Canvas and complete the pre-appointment questionairre, which you'll see in your Canvas To-Do List as "UESP Advising Pre-Appointment Questions: Planning for spring term 2020".

Are you currently 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.  See details on how to do so here
