Announcing the new Ecampus minor in Education!  May 26th, 2016

Hello everyone!

Great news!  The OSU College of Education is now offering a new Education minor through Ecampus!  Here’s the information from Karla Rockhold, Advisor and Recruiter for the College of Education:

“The College of Education is offering a new minor in Education through Ecampus; but it can also be completed through a combination of on-campus and Ecampus courses.  Here is the link to its description in the course catalog:

One of the new classes being offered for this minor is COUN 441- Introduction to Professional Counseling.  This online course can be taken by anyone interested in learning about the counseling profession.”

Many of you have expressed an interest in education and/or counseling careers, so this would be a fantastic minor for you to explore.

Happy Friday, Ecampus HDFS community!

Spring term is going by quickly and Week 7 is just around the corner.  This email is a reminder that the deadline to either Withdraw from or S/U a Spring term course is Friday, May 13.

You can Withdraw via the web until 11:55 pm on that day.  HOWEVER, PLEASE DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE!  I most likely won’t be able to help you if you miss the deadline.

The actual S/U deadline is 5:00 pm on the 13thHOWEVER, if you need to S/U a course I need your information by Thursday, May 12, 5:00 pm.  This will give me enough time to process your S/U request and get the information to the Registrar by the Friday deadline.  Here’s the information I’ll need for an S/U:








So for example:

YOUR NAME:  Jane Smith

YOUR STUDENT ID:  923456789

CRN: 12345





Once I receive this information from you I’ll complete the S/U form and send it to the Registrar on your behalf.  Remember that you cannot S/U any courses required for your major, including the required  support courses.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions!

A Personal Note from Aaron Worley  February 19th, 2016

Dear Ecampus HDFS students,

It is with mixed emotions that I send this email. The end of the term and/or year marks a very important stage in your lives, as you move one term and one step closer to graduating from OSU and into new life endeavors.

Many of you will find this a difficult and stressful transition. But transition is a constant in life. These changes represent new challenges, growth, and opportunities. The decisions you make now will help charter the rest of your lives.

I too will be in transition, one that involves leaving the College of Public Health and Human Sciences (PHHS). I am moving into a similar role with the College of Engineering. Thankfully, I will not be far and remain a member of Beaver Nation. I’m very thankful as you have been extremely supportive and cooperative throughout my tenure. It was your brilliance and dedication that we boast a #5 ranking of online degrees.

I am extremely fortunate to have guided and advised many of you over my past 3+ years as an Ecampus HDFS mentor and advisor. There has been struggle and growing pains, but I’ve had the utmost confidence in you to overcome the obstacles as you prepare for what the future brings you.

As I bid goodbye to all of you, I wish you all a very successful future and a life full of joy. May all your dreams come true and you all achieve your goals in life.

Keep up the good work and Go Beavs!

Warmest Regards,


Aaron Worley

Happy New Year, Ecampus HDFS community!

We hope you’ve enjoyed a pleasant and relaxing break before starting your Winter term classes on Monday, January 4.  As always, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about your Winter term courses.  Remember that you can schedule academic advising appointments with me by calling 541 737-8900.  I especially encourage you to schedule an academic advising appointment if you plan to graduate Spring or Summer 2016.

Please also pay attention to your Winter term S/U, Drop, and Withdrawal deadlines.  Here’s the link to the Winter 2016 academic calendar .

And finally, I want to make sure you’re all aware of the new student services model we’ve embraced here at the College of Public Health & Human Sciences (CPHHS).  Academic Advising is now housed in the CPHHS Office of Student Success (OSS).  We’re still located in 105 Women’s Building, but now we’ve expanded our student services to  include advising in career development, education abroad opportunities, and CPHHS graduate programs.  We’re excited about the “one stop shopping” experience that OSS now provides, and as Ecampus HDFS students you can absolutely take advantage of these additional services as well.  I will continue to serve as your Academic Advisor.

Here is the contact information for the advisors:

Suzanna Chase

Manager of CPHHS Graduate Admissions, Applications, and Recruitment

(*Please remember that this is for CPHHS graduate programs only.  Let me know if you’re interested in grad programs outside of CPHHS.)

Joanna Abbott

Assistant Director

OSU Career Development Center

(*You can also contact Ecampus Career Services Counselor Kyle Cassady: )

Theresa Cuenca

Education Abroad & Internship Advisor

(*Yes, even Ecampus students can and do participate in education abroad programs, and I highly recommend it!)

Here’s to a great Winter term!  Go Beavs!
