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, but the office space is currently closed due to the pandemic. The Academic Advising Office is open during normal University hours and during academic breaks, but not during University holidays.
Meeting with an Academic Advisor
While the Undergraduate Academic Advising Office space (Scott Lab N250) is currently closed, academic advisors continue to be available through email and remote appointments.
MAE Undergraduate Academic Advisors are available for remote appointments. 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.
Current Ohio State undergraduate students (Columbus Campus) are asked to schedule an advising appointment through OnCourse. Students can set up text and email reminders for appointments, as well as read any notes left for you by an advisor. The online scheduling system only shows available appointments for the next 10 business days. Please be aware that wait time for appointments may be up to two weeks.
If you are not a currently enrolled student at OSU, please email our office at firstname.lastname@example.org with appointment availability.
Walk-in hours are available for quick five minute meetings and are intended for brief guidance. Walk-in hours are intended for students who wish to add/drop a class or swap class times. While walk-in availability will be limited for Spring 2021, additional appointment times are available for students.
Changing Major to Pre-ME/Pre-AE
Students from other pre-majors in the College of Engineering can schedule an appointment with an advisor to change their major to pre-mechanical/pre-aerospace engineering. Students from outside the College of Engineering should first review the eligibility requirements. If eligibility requirements are met, please schedule an appointment with an advisor for the next steps.
