The Office for Academic and Student Affairs (OASA) is the centralized advisement unit in the School of Public Health and Health Professions (SPHHP). We provide advisement services to undergraduate students pursuing academic programs offered in our school.
We also provide basic information on the School's graduate and professional programs and refer students to specific contact persons in those programs for individualized advisement. The overarching mission of OASA is to provide academic advising and retention efforts that strengthen and enhance the diversity of the student body.
Office Inquiry Response Policy
Our office attempts to respond to all inquiries (email & phone calls) within 36 hours of receipt during the business week (Monday- Friday, excluding weekends and holidays). All inquiries must include a name, phone number, and the nature of the inquiry. Please leave a voicemail if we are unable to immediately answer your call.
We strive to have a team approach to academic advising. One of our academic advisors will be able to assist you with all of your advising needs.
