University Exploratory Studies Program (UESP) is the academic home for students who have chosen to explore their options prior to deciding on a major. UESP is very similar to OSU's academic colleges in that we provide academic support to assure that our students are making satisfactory progress toward a degree. We offer a comprehensive range of services to help students make informed decisions about their academic coursework and potential majors they're considering.

Declared, but thinking about a change in direction?

It is a very common experience for students to realize that their initial major choice is not the right fit.  If that is your experience, don't panic!  UESP is here to help you figure out which major direction at OSU is right for you.  You're welcome to switch to UESP or even just consult with one of our advisors.  Either way just requires that you make an appointment.  Call our office at 541-737-8144 or stop by 102 Waldo Hall to schedule one.

Keep up on your exploration!

We’d love it if you follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook  or follow us on Instagram – we try to use social media in addition to these weekly emails to aid you in your exploration.
