If you are an OSU student or parent or are planning to be an OSU student next year, please read this advisory message from the Office of the Registrar about a new software package called “Regismart”. Regismart can cause serious problems to occur in your Online Services profile that may prevent you from further accessing your account.
Additionally, sharing your OSU ID in conjunction with your GAP (General Access Pin) puts your online account at risk.
Notice to all Oregon State University Students:
Recently, a third-party computer program called â€œRegismartâ€ has been offered for sale to OSU/Cascades students as an automated way for students to register for their classes as soon as their registration priority time arrives, and/or as a way to continue to check for openings once classes fill. Oregon State University does not endorse this program, nor any software program, either commercially or independently created, which automates registration processes in Student Online Services. This product has the real potential of locking a student out of registering for classes or altering their registration for classes for the entire term. Oregon State University and the Office of the Registrar strongly recommend that students not share their OSU ID and GAP with third party entities. Sharing this information opens students up to potential security and privacy risks. There is also no guarantee that information shared utilizing this software program will be kept confidential and/or not shared with other outside entities, or that the softwareâ€™s database is secured against potential hackers.
For more information please review the following web page for more information on how this and other like products impact the registration process for students: http://oregonstate.edu/registrar/regismartnotice.html.
