Students may request to change their advisor. This is often expected when a student changes majors. Here are the ways in which a student obtains a new academic advisor:
- Students submit the appropriate form online requesting a change to a specific new academic advisor. That new advisor must agree to serve as the student’s new academic advisor. The Registrar’s Office will change the assignment, and the new advisor information will display in OASIS and in Navigate.
- Some majors will require a student to have an advisor assigned from within the content area of the major. When a student changes majors into one of these majors, if they have not obtained the approval of a new advisor from within that major as outlined above, they will be assigned a new advisor by the new academic program and sent notification to their OU email account about the new advisor assignment. The registrar’s office will change the assignment, and the new advisor information will display in OASIS.
