Student groups aligned with OUSA provide current and prospective students the opportunity to interact with peers who can provide guidance and advice from a student point of view:


Office of Undergraduate Student Affairs (OUSA)

The Office of Student Services (OSS) is now the Office of Undergraduate Student Affairs (OUSA)!

OUSA advises Kinesiology's current and prospective undergraduate students on matters relating to admissions, orientation, registration, curriculum, internships, career planning, and graduate school preparation. OUSA can also provide referrals for guidance and counseling, health issues and disabilities, financial concerns, and more.

We can help! Our goal is to guide and counsel students throughout their academic career. We strive to present a one-stop, student-friendly environment designed to meet all student needs.
