In response to student feedback, we are announcing Design My BGSU – an initiative to work with students in selecting between three course formats: In-Person/Hybrid, Remote or Online. As a BGSU student, we want to give you the opportunity to help you choose how you wish to learn. If you are interested in making adjustments to your schedule, we invite you to learn how our advisors can assist you.

Academic Advising

At BGSU, students are assigned an academic advisor from day one, and we strive to provide every opportunity possible for students to not only meet with an advisor, but to develop an important and on-going partnership designed to lead toward the important outcome of student success.

We aspire to create a culture of advising excellence for our students, marked by ongoing professional development and collegiality among advisors across campus.

Our Mission

BGSU advisors strive to challenge and support students to become independent and engaged citizens who are able to take responsibility for achieving lifelong educational, personal, and career goals.

Academic advising provides students with the opportunity to build a relationship with their advisors for the purpose of gaining assistance in planning their educational career, in learning the skills needed for academic success, and in learning how to access the variety of resources and services available to them on the BGSU campus.Across all of our programs and colleges, students work with advisors to:

  • Establish educational and career goals
  • Develop academic degree plans
  • Explore experiential learning opportunities such as study abroad, service learning, internships, undergraduate research and many other co-curricular opportunities


Your reconfigured schedule has been published and can be found in the Student Center in MyBGSU. When you review your schedule, each course will be coded with one of the three class modes: In-Person/Hybrid, Remote and Online. You can learn more about these three modes on our Academics & Research Page. Please keep in mind some additional changes may occur throughout the summer, which is a regular part of our scheduling process.

To better accommodate the variety of academic and learning preferences students have, a select team of academic advisors has been pulled together to help you design and change your fall schedule where needed. If you are interested in making adjustments after you review your schedule, you may reach out to an advisor by completing the form below and an advisor will connect with you within 24 hours.

Although a small number of classes such as labs and studios may require students to be on campus, through the new Design My BGSU initiative, we are committed to giving you the opportunity to choose how you want to learn.
