Academic advisers are here to guide you along your journey at OU. On this site, you can find who you should be seeing for academic advising and information to help make the most out of your academic advising appointments and your time at OU.
The First Year Advising Center is the first stop for all incoming first-year students and undecided transfers. In addition to orientation, that office provides academic advising for all first-year, undecided and re-deciding students; programs and events for first-year students; and major exploration and career counseling for all undergraduate students.
Once you reach sophomore standing, your academic program of choice will determine the academic advising office you will visit. Each school and the college at Oakland University house their own professional academic advising office. Use the "Find My Academic Adviser" tools on this website to determine which advising office you will be visiting. Faculty advisers within each academic department also are qualified to advise you and connect you with additional resources.
Academic advising is an ongoing partnership between the student and adviser, empowering students to plan for their academic success. Advisers help students with both the “here and now” as well as life after graduation.
