Undergraduate Advising

The MAE Undergraduate Academic Advising team is dedicated to supporting mechanical and aerospace engineering students in their educational pursuits. The student-advisor partnership can have an important impact on a student’s academic success and we encourage students to utilize the advising resources in planning an all-around enriching educational experience here at OSU. 

The Undergraduate Academic Advising Office is located in Scott Laboratory N250. The Academic Advising Office is open during normal University hours and during academic breaks, but not during University holidays.

Appointment Information 

MAE Undergraduate Academic Advisors are available by appointment in-person or by phone. Students who wish to discuss more complex topics such as application to the major, transfer credit, SAP appeals, or course sequencing should schedule an appointment.
