Notifications and Reminders of Appointments ade through OnCourse

Advisors and students will receive notification, reminders, and updates of appointments made through OnCourse.  The subject line, sender, and details in these messages will vary.  These variations could be between reasons for the appointment, creator of the appointment, or next action taken.  To review the differences and examples of these messages, please see Details in PDF

Utilizing Prospecitve and Returning Student Profiles

In OnCourse, only students who have been term activated within the last 36 months can be found.  Should there be a need to enter a note or add a “report on advising” to a student who is a prospective student or returning student (who has not been active at Ohio State University within the last 36 months) you can utilize a “Prospective” or “Returning” student profile.

There are some prospective and returning accounts currently created for specific departments and units, but not all. If your unit or department currently does not have this set up but would like to, please email to get this created.
