Contact by Email

E-mail is a very quick and efficient way to have your advising questions answered; however, some questions are better served in an appointment.

Good questions for e-mail

  • Questions that have very specific answers, such as: when is my registration window? Can you send me the link to the GEC?
  • Referrals to other offices
  • Follow-up on appointments/petitions

Inappropriate questions for e-mail

  • What should I schedule?
  • How many hours do I have left before I can graduate?
  • What GECs do I have left?
  • When can we meet?

Do you know whom to e-mail?
The Arts and Sciences Advising and Academic Services Office is proud to say that we make sure that each of our students has an assigned advisor. Before you consider e-mailing an advisor, ask yourself this question:

Do I have an assigned advisor?

  • If yes, you most likely know their e-mail address and have been in contact with them before. If not, then use the Staff Directory to locate your advisor's e-mail address.
  • If no, please call us at 419-995-8264. We will assign you an advisor and schedule an appointment with that person. We want to make sure you begin building a relationship with your advisor as soon as possible.

Do not include your SSN in your e-mail; e-mail is not a secure form of communication.

For security purposes, please e-mail us directly from your Ohio State e-mail account.
