The Office of Student Affairs (OSA) in the College of Allied Health Sciences (CAHS) houses academic advising, which is available to assist future and current students with their academic goals. We are open Monday through Friday. While we do welcome drop-ins for quick questions, we strongly encourage current students to make an appointment with their assigned advisor to ensure advisor availability. University of Cincinnati (UC) and OSA send official communication to students' UC email account, so students should check their UC email account daily. Advisors are most easily reached by email.
Academic advising is an educational process that, by intention and design, facilitates students' understanding of the meaning and purpose of higher education and fosters their intellectual and personal development toward academic success and lifelong learning (National Academic Advising Association).
CAHS embraces advising as teaching to:
- Provide the foundation and tools for active learning;
- Model an environment of mutual respect, interdependence and accountability;
- Encourage personal and professional growth through opportunities that promote self-discovery and continuous learning.
The Office of Student Affairs helps College of Allied Health Sciences’ students achieve their educational and personal goals using a student-centered approach. We provide accurate and helpful information to teach students how to fulfill program requirements, navigate the university and connect with campus resources. We value a holistic approach to educating the whole person, promoting wellness and self-reliance. We recognize relationships are at the core of our work, so we cultivate partnerships with students, faculty and other members of the UC community. We’re committed to a workplace environment that is positive, flexible, professional and team-oriented to best serve our students.
The College of Allied Health Sciences’ Office of Student Affairs is committed to attracting a talented and diverse undergraduate student population, connecting students to invaluable campus resources, embracing best-practice strategies for student success, encouraging personal and professional exploration among students, and promoting a student-centered advising environment both in-person and online.
