Check your Web for Student to find out who your primary Academic Advisor is or contact the Oregon Tech Registrar's Office for assistance.

Can I change my primary Academic Advisor?
Yes, you can always request a change of advisor. If you would like to change your advisor, you can go to your current advisor, to the Advising Coordinator, or to the Department Chair for your major; any of these individuals will be able to assist you.
When should I see my advisor?
You are encouraged to meet with your advisor frequently. Stop by during their office hours or contact them for an appointment. Definitely, see your advisor for the following:
- To discuss registration (get your Advisor PIN) and review degree requirements
- To discuss academic status, policies and procedures

- If you are experiencing difficulty with a course or if your mid-term grades are below a 2.0

- To discuss potential career paths, exploration techniques, or internships
- If you believe you have been a victim of inequity or discrimination

What can the advisor help me with?

What do I need to bring to my appointment with the advisor?
You should always be prepared when you meet with your advisor. It is best if you have looked at your major curriculum map and have an idea of classes that you would like to register for in the upcoming term. It is a good idea to have your graduation petition filled out with classes that you have already completed every time you meet with your advisor; this will help both of you to determine which classes are still needed.
