NOTICE: As the COVID-19 health situation continues to evolve, Oregon State University is actively collaborating with local and state public health experts to provide response, prevention, services and information to the OSU community. Administrators and staff are implementing plans to maintain the continuity of education, research, outreach, student services and operations throughout the university.

Based on the university’s directive to use social distancing measures and move to remote delivery of instruction in spring term, College of Engineering advising is offered via Zoom or email.  Please contact Head Advisor Cassie Pitkin with any questions.

For additional information about COVID-19 and OSU's response, please visit the COVID-19 Information webpage.

Academic Advisors are REMOTE for Fall 2020


Have a quick question? An advisor will be available on a drop-in basis (via Zoom), 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., M - F. Click on the Drop-in survey link and you will be routed to the drop-in waiting room. An advisor will be with you shortly.


Do you need to meet with an advisor to receive your PIN to register for the next quarter? Do you have a lot going on and feel like the appointment warrants longer time than a quick “drop-in” question? Do you want plan out a few years’ worth of courses? Make an appointment by clicking on an advisor’s schedule below. 


If you are coming in for your PIN, please be sure to have updated your Planner in MyDegrees for the current quarter, plus two more quarters. Click here for resources to help with updating your Planner.

** See no-show policy.


PIN Distribution

All students need a PIN to register for fall, winter and spring terms (no PIN needed for summer). How you receive your PIN will depend on the quarter; it will either be emailed to you or you will need to meet with an MIME advisor to receive it. You will receive an email the Friday before Week 1 of every quarter from the MIME Head Advisor. This email will indicate whether or not you will need to meet with advisor to receive your PIN or whether it will be emailed.  If you have questions about this or did not receive the email, please contact Cassie Pitkin at

No-Show Policy

Students who do not show up for their scheduled advising appointment, and who did not cancel that appointment at least 12 hours in advance will be marked as a no-show. Students who have a subsequent no-show in the 12 months following a no-show will not receive their registration PIN until the last Monday of phase one priority registration.
