Effective immediately through the end of spring semester, the advising office physical location is temporarily closed until further notice. We will still be providing advising appointments by phone or CarmenZoom. Advisors will be available by email during business hours. See below for more information.
Appointments through the end of spring semester

Non-School of Communication Ohio State Students
Are you a current Ohio State student thinking of switching your major to communication or journalism?
Students are required to attend a Major Information Session before scheduling an individual advising appointment with a School of Communication advisor. Students can declare pre-communication or pre-journalism at the session.
See Declaring the Pre-Major for upcoming Major Information Session dates and times.
Prospective High School or Transfer Students
Please email advisor Lisa Jerele at firstname.lastname@example.org to request additional information and to schedule an advising appointment. We recommend arranging your visit at least 2-3 weeks in advance as appointments fill quickly. Appointments are required. In addition, we encourage prospective students to arrange an Admissions Overview and Tour to learn about Ohio State's application and admissions requirements.
