  • helps staff advisors for each major coordinate advising for registration;
  • with academic departments, manages enrollment levels in courses, and permission for non-majors to take them;
  • with departments, approves permits to take courses elsewhere (more);
  • maintains the official curricula for each major, and the General Education liberal arts elective list;
  • sets policy on enforcing standards for academic performance by students.

In cooperation with each major's staff advisor, the OUA:

  • approves student requests and appeals;
  • approves conditions of academic probation and re-entry;
  • does preliminary (on behalf of the student) & final (on behalf of the registrar) graduation checks.

Each major's staff advisor:
