Discover your academic potential at Ohio Dominican!

ODU's Office of Advising & Student Success serves as a resource to enhance the collegiate experience for incoming students. During your first year, you and your advisor will work together to:

  • Outline appropriate educational plans
  • Clarify academic and long-term goals
  • Improve decision-making skills
  • Evaluate degree progression
  • Discover additional resources designed to improve academic performance

Because the advising relationship is designed to ease the transitions into and through ODU, the Office of Advising & Student Success staff will be the primary advisors for new undergraduate and transfer students. 

After a student's first year, he or she will transition to a faculty advisor within the student's declared major.

Students are encouraged to to meet with an advisor and may schedule appointments by visiting the Office of Advising & Student Success in Erskine 214 or calling (614) 251-4230.
