On Line Catalog and Schedule of Classes Help

At the request of OSU Academic Affairs the Business Solutions Group (BSG) of the College of Business has developed this on line version of the catalog and schedule of classes.  This help file can help you get started and answer your questions as you use this new resourse.  The index is linked to the sections in the help file to allow you to jump quickly to the section you are needing help with.  Just click on the section heading in the index. 

It should be noted that this is not the registration system for the university.  We suggest that students who are registering open their connection to the university registration system http://oregonstate.edu/registrar/ and another window with this system.  (http://catalog.oregonstate.edu/ )  This will allow you to use the search engine of the Schedule of Classes to copy and paste the CRNs for courses you want directly into the registration grid.
