Serving you in the Autumn 2023 Semester

Scheduling for Spring 2024


In addition to consulting with an expert (i.e. your advisor), here are some general tips on planning your Spring 2024 schedule:

  1. See exactly when your official Spring enrollment window opens.
    • Click on "Details" underneath your "Enrollment Information" box which appears on the right side of your My Buckeye Link page. Aim to start adding spring classes right when your spring window opens – you can always make adjustments later on.
  2. Use Schedule Planner to plan your ideal Spring schedule.
    • Even before your scheduling window opens officially, you can start planning your Spring schedule using Schedule Planner. (You can click here for a guide on using Schedule Planner.) Once your window opens, you'll be able to send your schedule plan from Schedule Planner to your Shopping Cart to officially add your Spring 2024 classes.
  3. Run a Degree Audit

Autumn Drop Deadline
(& Grade Forgiveness Deadline if you are in the 2nd attempt)

  1. Considering dropping an Autumn class?

    • The deadline to drop a semester-long was Friday, Oct 27 (the 10th Friday). If you are struggling in a class please consult with an advisor to discuss your options.
  2. Retaking a class and planning to use Grade Forgiveness? 

    • Friday, Oct 27 was also the deadline for requesting Grade Forgiveness if you have questions about grade forgiveness, including questions about submitting a late Grade Forgiveness form, please consult with your advisor.

*** The following specializations in Engineering/CIS are no longer options for current Ohio State students who are not already in the associated premajors 

  • Computer Science & Engineering (CSE)
  • Computer & Information Science (CIS)
  • Aerospace Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Biomedical Engineering

If you are a prospective student planning to apply to Ohio State and are interested in the above majors, please plan to apply directly to those majors when you complete your applications.

Current students can view the College of Engineering's policy and see which specializations are accessible to current students at the Engineering advising webpage on Applying to Major. Current students who were interested in the above majors but are now unable to access them can consult with Engineering advising to discuss which available specializations can help them meet similar career goals and can consult with University Exploration advisors to discuss alternative majors outside of Engineering.
