Q How do I see the ROAD event schedule?
Q How do I know who is attending ROAD?
A The Dean of HAS and Dean of ETM will send a list of expected students prior to each event.
Q How do I access forms and other resources I need during ROAD?
Q How do I find my advisee’s transfer credit evaluation?
A Transfer credit evaluations are available in Web for Faculty, under the Advising Menu. Please be prepared for a wait-time as this tool loads. Advisors are encouraged to review these documents prior to the event day.
Q The student I’m working with wants to change their major. What should I do?
A The student needs to go to the Admissions Office before registering to change their major. After changing their major, the student should see the advisor for that department in order to select courses for the fall.
Q My Web for Faculty password is not working. What do I do?
A Call the Registrar’s Office at 541-885-1305.
Q What is DFL? How does Deficient Foreign Language impact my advising?
A DFL, or Deficient Foreign Language, means that the student graduated high school during or after 1997 and did not successfully complete at least two years of the same second language while in school. The student will need to complete two college quarters of the same second language sometime before graduation.
Q My advisee says that they have completed additional credits at another school that have not been transferred to Oregon Tech yet. What do I do?
A It is the student’s responsibility to request official transcripts and to make sure that Oregon Tech receives transcripts. If you feel the student is ready, you may advise them into the next course. The student should be advised that failure to produce transcripts may result in removal from a course.
Q How do I find my student’s placement testing results?
A The student will bring an Individual Score Report with them to advising. Additionally, the student’s testing results and scores will be posted on Web for Faculty, under the Advisor Menu on the Student Status page.
Q My advisee placed into Math 70 or Math 100 and wants to know more about Math 97. What do I need to know to effectively advise?
Math 97 is a 1 credit 5-week online course over the summer.
Math 97 students are able to review material at their own pace and may progress as far as their effort and ability allow. This algebra review course is typically very helpful to self-motivated individuals who will spend time working in the program. However, many students will not spend the time needed to successfully review concepts and may be frustrated by the experience.
Enrolling in Math 97 allows students to register (today) for the next higher math course than what they placed into. For example, if a student places into Math 70 today and chooses to enroll in Math 97 over the summer, you may advise the student into Math 100.
Typically, about 70% of students with ROAD placement into Math 70 will qualify for a Math 100 placement for the fall and about 80% of students with ROAD placement into Math 100 will qualify for a Math 111 placement for the fall.
Students will need to become “non-admitted” students for the summer in order to enroll in this course. They should be directed to the Registrar’s Office to complete the non-admit application.
Q The student I’m working with did not complete a required placement test. What should I do?
A Send the student to CFLAT to complete placement tests as needed.
Q My advisee placed into a math course lower than their previous transfer coursework. What should I do?
A The student may not have reviewed prior to the placement test or may not have retained enough of the information to place into the next higher class. The placement test lets you know that the student may have difficulty going into the next higher class without appropriate review. The decision is ultimately the students as the system will not prevent them from registering for the next higher course. However, please take care in advising the student that math at OIT can be difficult and that they should consider reviewing prior to continuing their course of study.
Q Where is the Math Specialist?
A The math specialists are located in BH 151. They are available by phone at 541-885-0952.
Q Where is the Advising Specialist?
A The advising specialists are located in CFLAT. Please send students to CFLAT for assistance.
Q My advisee placed into WRI 115. What should I do?
A Advise the student to take WRI 115.
Q What does “exception eligible” on my advisee’s placement test results mean?
Q What paperwork do I keep?
A Keep the student’s placement test results, if you choose. Otherwise, all the information is available online so you don’t technically need to keep anything.
Q Where do I send my advisee when they are ready to register?
A Send students to the Registrar’s Office when they are ready to register.
Q My advisee has conditions on their admission. How do I know what these conditions are and what do I do about the conditions?
A It is the student’s responsibility to make sure they are in compliance with conditions. However, advisors can check on conditions by calling CFLAT (541-885-1791) or the OIT Admissions Office (541-885-1150). Advisors should help the student comply with requirements.
Q I think I have seen all the students for my major today. How do I know when I can leave?
A Call Admissions at 541.885.1150 to report students seen and ask if there are any other students (i.e. walk-ins or students who changed their major).
Q How do I get a hard copy of my major’s curriculum map?
A You can access the online catalog at http://www.oit.edu/catalog. Also, each department will receive hard copies of major curriculum maps during ROAD Advisor Briefing from 8:30-9:15 in CU, 2nd Floor, Mt. McLoughlin before each event.
Q How do I get additional assistance?
