If you have never logged in...
The first thing to do is to login to the system using your OSU-issued ID number and a default General Access Password (GAP?).
- Go to http://infosu.oregonstate.edu/login.
- For username, enter your OSU ID? number (this is a 9 digit number starting with 93).
- For password, enter your pre-assigned General Access Password (GAP).
- Your GAP has by default been set to your birthday. It uses 6 digits in the format of: MMDDYY (month, month, day, day, year, year).
- For example, if your birthday is June 01, 1980, then your GAP is 060180.
- After you have successfully logged in, you will be prompted to create a new 6-digit GAP number. Write down the number you choose – you will need it for the next step.
- Follow any additional instructions you encounter.
Once you have changed your GAP number, you will have to wait about 5 minutes before your can create your ONID account.
