Major Advising

Advising Update Dec 14, 2020

The HPHY department has removed the ‘C or better’ grading policy and will be accepting C- as a passing grade for prerequisites and major requirements.

To reduce in-person contact due to COVID-19 and to be able to reach every student that might be attending classes remotely, all advising services will continue to be offered remotely, including appointments and drop-in advising. See REMOTE OPERATIONS FOR COVID-19 for details.

HPHY peer advisors

Peer advisors are an integral part of the HPHY advising team.  Peer advisors are familiar with major requirements, pre-requisites, classes, instructors and can often provide perspectives that professional advisors cannot.  Peer advisors are typically available for drop-in advising Monday – Friday 10:00 – 3:00 in the HPHY main office.

You can chat or call the peers through Teams.

Contact: or call 541-346-PEERS (7337)

HPHY Location

The first point of contact for most students is the HPHY main office, located in 181 Esslinger Hall.  The advising office is in 180 Esslinger, however, during remote operations with COVID, all advising will be conducted remotely through online meetings in Teams.
