Microbiology and BioHealth Sciences Advising

The mission of our advising team is to provide support as you identify and make meaning of options, obligations and opportunities that can help you reach your goals. We aim to work in partnership with you and help you to tend to the logistics of getting your degree, maximize your educational experience and set the stage for life after you graduate. Among other services, we can help with course selection and auditing your progress, assist in your integration into campus and academic culture and highlight ways to supplement your classroom experiences with learning outside of the classroom.

The Science Success Center’s Peer Advisors are extensively trained science students who will offer you valuable guidance about on-campus services, programs, classes, research, internship and study abroad opportunities, science student clubs, registration and more. They also can help you register for classes, apply for scholarships and help you feel part of Team Science at OSU.
