Students who have changed to a different status, i.e. undergrad, grad, postbacc, or nondegree
A student changing their status, such as completing an undergraduate degree and continuing on to seek another bachelor's degree, must apply for admission under the new status through the Office of Admissions. Undergraduate students that enroll in courses for a term beyond the term in which their degree is awarded must apply for admission under a new status. If an application for a new status is not completed the student will be inactivated and their status changed to non-degree for the future term in which they are enrolled.
Students on Academic Suspension
If you were suspended at the end of the previous term, you are not eligible to register for a future term. If you are currently registered for a future term, you will be disenrolled. If reinstatement is granted, you must re-register.
When you attempt to register, the registration system will inform you of any registration holds that you have. Students with registration holds are not permitted to register until holds are cleared. The registration system will refer you to the appropriate departments and offices to contact to remove the holds.
Go to http://onid.oregonstate.edu and choose “Sign Up For ONID” from the upper-left hand column.
Plan which courses to take for the term by meeting with your college advisor and using MyDegrees. Use the online tools to identify course offerings, times, and locations:
Priority registration has two phases. Students register in group time blocks based on their credits earned and in progress. The more credits students have earned, the earlier they may register. Students may register in their assigned time block or any later time.
The two phases enable automated wait listing. Here is how it works for undergraduates:
Students may obtain registration times for phases 1 and 2 via their MyOSU account. Click on the Student tab and under Registration Tools, select View Priority Registration Status. Or see the priority registration tables in the online catalog at http://catalog.oregonstate.edu/ChapterDetail.aspx?key=374.
All degree-seeking undergraduates (including postbaccs) must have a Registration PIN to register for classes. Registration PINs are provided by colleges at the time of advising. Nondegree students are not required to have registration PINs.
Registration tutorials on adding, dropping, and waitlisting courses are available at http://oregonstate.edu/registrar/node/93/#Registration.
Caution: Do not wait until the last minute to process registration changes via the Web. Although generally available 24 hours per day, the Web online registration system is always down from 11:55 p.m. Friday until 7 a.m. Saturday. If you wait until 10 p.m. or later on a Friday night, you may encounter "system unavailable" messages or busy signals due to many people trying to use the system at the same time.
You may confirm your schedule and print a copy of your schedule by loggin in to MyOSU at https://myosu.oregonstate.edu, select the Student tab and under My Student Stuff, click on 'My Class Schedule'.
IMPORTANT: Course offerings, course times and locations, and other important information related to courses may change. The Schedule of Classes in the online catalog on the OSU website always has the latest information. Click on Schedule of Classes. (http://catalog.oregonstate.edu/Default.aspx?section=ClassListing)
In Phase 2, wait listing will be in effect—but only for certain sections selected by the departments. Look at the online Schedule of Classes. You will see that some sections have wait listing numbers listed just between the enrollment numbers and the section title.
When you try registering for a closed class, you now can add your name to an automated wait list. (Note: Not every section has wait listing.)
Monitor your ONID email account. When an opening becomes available you will receive an email directing you to return to your registration and enroll in the course within the designated 24-hour window. If you do not enroll in the course within 24 hours you will be removed from the wait list. At the time of registration the system will check for registration errors (Time Conflicts, Duplicates, and Link Errors). If you have a registration error, you must resolve it and enroll within the 24 hours or you will be removed from the wait list and the available seat will be passed on to the next student on the wait list.
Wait listing remains active until midnight Sunday of the second week of the term. If you are on the wait list at this time you are not registered in the course and should begin the second week add process if you still wish to be enrolled in the course. You do not need to drop or withdraw yourself from the wait list at this time.
Automated second week adds will be available beginning midnight of Sunday of the second week of classes.
If you have transfer credits that you have not yet submitted to OSU, you need to submit official transcripts to the Admissions Office at least four weeks prior to registration opening. Transfer credits are included in your earned credits used in part to determine your priority registration time.
A GAP is a 6-digit access number initially assigned to each student by the Registrar’s Office. Your initial GAP is your birthdate (month, day, year). For example, if your birthdate is April 3, 1988, your GAP will be 040388. The GAP is your Personal Identification Number used to access student information available through BANNER and the World Wide Web. Your initial birthdate GAP will expire upon your first entry into the information systems. You must then choose a new GAP, other than your birthdate. You also have the option to enter some additional information about yourself to use as a prompt should you forget your GAP and need to obtain a new GAP. You may also contact the Registrar’s Office, 541-737-4331, 102B Kerr Administration Building, if you forget your GAP.
