Advising for Biochemistry and Biophysics & Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Majors
 
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Minors

 

Academic Year 2022-23
To support the health and welfare of our entire community, we are using both remote and in-person advising meetings for this academic year. Drop-in sessions are all vitrual. For Scheduled Appointments, students will be able to indicate virtual or in-person format. Refer to the instructions and table below for scheduling appointments. 

 

We use a team approach to advising, meaning BB and BMB students will work with all members of the advising team over the course of their undergraduate career on a rotation basis rather than being assigned to just one advisor. We try to be as accessible as possible to students. All members of the BB/BMB advising team are research or teaching faculty which enables us to work with our students in different settings.

Drop-in advising is for quick (5-7 minute) questions only. If you need more assistance, please schedule an appointment per the advising assignment below. Advisors will not distribute PINs during drop-in advising. At the appropriate time, click on the Zoom link you would like to attend below and you will automatically be sent to the Zoom virtual waiting room. When an advisor is ready to chat with you, they will admit you to the meeting. It may take 10-15 minutes for them to meet with you, depending on the number of students accessing drop-ins.

Prepare for your advising appointment!

Every student must have an updated Plan in Planner (not Scheduler Cart) built out to encompass entire timeline at OSU. Review your MyDegrees checklist and create/update information in your MyDegrees Planner prior to each advising appointment to reflect on your progress, plans, and goals. Students without an updated 4-year plan in their MyDegrees Planner will not receive their pin. Please make sure to use the Academic Catalog for Schedule of Classes so you place courses when actually offered.
