Advising at OSU is guided by a set of goals and learning outcomes, https://uesp.oregonstate.edu/sites/uesp.oregonstate.edu/files/aavmvo.pdf
. Additionally, within the College of Agricultural Sciences, advising is viewed as a partnership, in which you are paired with a knowledgeable academic professional, assigned to work with you over an extended period of time, on a one-on-one basis, to promote your success. Bear in mind that your education, and all decisions about your program of study, are ultimately your responsibility. Take the time to become familiar with the information at the FST Undergraduate web site. You will find answers to many of your questions at this site. Use the tools at this site, the OSU Online Catalog, Registration Handbook and My Degrees to plan and monitor your program. Advisors are expected to be respectful of you as an individual and to provide accurate and timely information regarding your education. Advisees are similarly expected to respect advisors and their time, in part by preparing for, and keeping, appointments. In your advising meeting, express your experience and goals as completely and accurately as possible, so that your advisor can make the most appropriate recommendations to help you maximize the benefit you receive from the time, effort, and money you are investing in your education. Review your plan and progress with your advisor, and be prepared to act on the suggestions your advisor provides.
