Student Services within the Office of Academic Affairs is the primary academic advising office for undergraduate students enrolled in the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences. We serve students preparing to apply to one of our undergraduate programs & provides advising services to current students enrolled in the program.

Every week advisors hold drop-in hours and are available for advising appointments. Drop-in hour times are sent to students in the weekly emails.

Appointments cannot be scheduled over email. Students can schedule an appointment with their advisor via OnCourse or call 614-292-1706.
