Central Advisors vs. Faculty Advisors
- Central Advisors- If you have less than 60 credit hours, you are assigned a Central Advisor who works with you to build a pathway toward student success. Central Advisors help you establish a sense of belonging, create connections, and provide supportive guidance as you begin your journey at OPSU. You can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Faculty Advisors- After earning at least 60 credit hours, students are assigned a Faculty Advisor who brings their valuable expertise related to their field and your declared program of study. They provide you with insight into course content, research, and the job market.
