Student Advisement

You meet with a YSU academic advisor regarding how your course(s) apply towards YSU graduation requirements. High school based students meet with an advisor over the summer on scheduled CCP Orientation and Advising Days. Campus based students meet with an advisor each term prior to registration. Contact an advisor to make an on-campus or phone appointment. Meeting with an advisor is mandatory per the state CCP rules!

Note: YSU advisors cannot provide information on how a course will transfer to schools other than YSU. For more information, please see Transferring College Credit.
