Week 5: Ready For Advising?

Week 5 means it’s almost time to meet with your academic advisor to discuss plans for next term and the start of your second year.

Priority registration for Fall 2017 begins May 21, and your advisor can help you choose from different options and opportunities. You can review your record to date and build a potential plan via MyDegrees.

In addition to other elements of the Baccalaureate Core, you should be making progress toward OSU’s first-year skills courses - including writing I, speech and mathematics - to be completed in your first 45 credits at Oregon State.

Make that advising appointment, and have a great week!
Don’t have any questions for your advisor yet? Here are some things to consider:
1 You’ve completed most of your first year. Think about what’s been working for you, what isn’t and what you’d like to do about it.

2 How well does your current academic path fit with your interests, values and abilities?

3 If you plan to stay on your current path, how can you take your involvement to the next level? Talk to your advisor or professors about internships, research and other opportunities to advance your experiences and skills.

4 If you are hesitating or reconsidering your path, consider this listing of colleges and majors and talk with your advisor about next steps.

5 Have you felt a spark so far this year? If so, where does it lead? Do you have new questions, actions or goals as a result?
