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.

Current UESP Students: if you have yet to schedule your advising appointment, don't wait - stop by 102 Waldo or call 541-737-8144 to schedule your mandatory 30-minute advising appointment. You know that we get booked out very quickly, so call or stop by now to ensure that you get an appointment before your priority registration date. Please note that we cannot schedule appointments by email.
First-year students are sometimes surprised that registration for fall for returning students happens in late May and early June. You get priority registration over incoming new and transfer students this summer. Take advantage of it!
A few things to note about this term’s appointment:
We look forward to seeing you soon!

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!
