The OSU ID?/GAP account is an account that is primarily used by Alumni. The main purpose of this account is to help Alumni setup their lifetime email addresses, and obtain academic transcripts. Current students can use their ONID account to log in instead of their OSU ID and GAP.
OSU ID Number - Your OSU ID Number is a unique individual number assigned to you by the University used to identify you in University records. You will use this number to log in to Online Services to obtain your records and register for classes.
GAP (General Access PIN) - This is a six digit number that you will set and use along with your OSU ID Number. NEVER GIVE OUT YOUR GAP!
How To Obtain An OSU ID/GAP
An OSU ID and GAP will be assigned to you when you become affiliated with the University. Students will receive their ID and GAP from their admissions information, and employees will receive their OSU ID and GAP from their department contact, new hire paperwork, or Human Resources.
You may reset your GAP by entering your ID number or SSN, leaving the password blank and clicking Former Student GAP Reset. Youwill be required to remember the answer to the security question you made upon making the account . If for some reason you can not remember your security question:
Students - Please contact the Registrar at (541) 737-4331
Employees - If you know your OSU ID, but not your GAP, contact the OSU Computer Helpdesk at (541) 737-3474. If you do not know your OSU ID, please contact Center for HR Systems and Technology at (541) 737-8300.
