Consult this calendar for information about deadlines associated with registration.
Need to find courses from current or past terms? Here are some resources to meet that need.
Enforcement of prerequisites is a powerful tool for managing your courses and setting up students to succeed in a course. Learn about how to enforce prerequisites for your course.
Registration occurs in two phases. Students are given access to each phase of registration in batches according to their student status and earned credit hours. A general overview of the priority registration schedule is available on this website. Detailed information about your date and time for registration is available in the registration menu of your Online Services.
Courses may be restricted in many ways; prerequisites, corequisites, majors/minors/options, college, class standing and others. Restrictions are displayed in the class schedule. The ability to make exceptions to these restrictions lies with the department offering the course. Instructions for providing exceptions is provided in this section.
Students enrolled in courses beyond the end of the add/drop period are responsible for at least a portion of the applicable tuition and fees.
Departments can choose to use electronic waitlisting on course sections. Review the provided information to learn more about how this tool can be used to manage enrollment in courses.
The academic calendar defines the dates & deadlines for registration transactions within a given term. You may use this calendar to view dates and deadlines for different terms. Please refer to this calendar often.
Using the online schedule of classes you can search class listings in several ways. You can define your criteria in the Search All Schedules of Classes. If you know you are looking for something more specific you can begin your search in a specific subsection such as Baccalaureate Core Schedules or Undergraduate Schedules by Subject. Once you’ve defined your criteria and located the course/courses that you are interested in make note of the CRN for registration purposes.
Watch our Searching for Baccalaureate Core Courses video tutorial or go straight to the baccalaureate core courses section of the general catalog.
Visit the campus accessibility site maintained by Disability Access Services and learn the about the accessibility of buildings on campus.
Find courses schedulede over the previous two years in the online catalog archives.
PDFs of all past schedules of classes are available in ScholarsArchive@OSU at http://ir.library.oregonstate.edu/xmlui/handle/1957/2049.
The official prerequisite policy is available for you to review. Also, for your convenience we have provided additional information here that you may find helpful.
Only those courses—selected by the departments—with a specific subject prefix and number, such as MTH 111, that have been completed with a passing grade of D– or better prior to enrollment or concurrent with the course being registered for. Some colleges have higher minimum passing grade requirements.
Banner checks the student's academic record, including transfer credit, to see if the prerequisite course has been successfully completed with a passing grade. If the course was not successfully completed, the student will be told the prerequisite has not been met and he or she will not be allowed to register for that course. Prerequisite checking will occur for all students who wish to take the course, regardless of level, rank, or college.
Banner also counts as "satisfied" any prerequisite that the student is currently enrolled in. However, if the student fails to satisfactorily complete the currently enrolled prerequisite course after registration, he or she will be disenrolled from the next term's course (effective for winter 2012 registration).
Yes, departments may continue to list prereqs that are not enforced during registration. Such prereqs may be enforced at the instructor's or department's discretion after registration. Both types of prereqs will be listed in the General Catalog and online Schedule of Classes (SOC) and labeled as "PREREQS:"
Transfer credits are brought into a student's OSU record when the Office of Admissions articulates those credits to OSU equivalents as directed by departments. Where there are no direct equivalents, the transfer credit will not count toward prerequisite compliance during registration without an override exception being granted by the department.
Some students who do not meet prerequisites may wish to appeal to the offering department for an exception. Departments will be able to grant exceptions by entering overrides into Banner. Overrides will then allow the student to continue with their registration. If desired, override permissions may be entered into Banner in advance to the start of registration, with an override code of PREQ.

To maintain registration eligibility for each term a student must keep their account in good standing. Visit the Business Affairs website for detailed information available about student billing.
Students can view their bill via their Online Services in the Student Account Information menu.
E-bill statements are sent to ONID accounts on the 5th of the month. Balances not paid by the 1st of the following month considered past due and interest begins to accrue.
Bills may be paid via e-check, personal check, money order, cash, or credit card.
If the course you want to enroll in is closed see if it has an available wait-list. Courses can be wait-listed online during Phase II of registration; refer to the priority registration calendar.
If you’ve never waitlisted a course before watch the Waitlisting Video to get started.
If you know the CRN of the course; login to the Online Services, choose the Registration menu, choose Add/Drop classes, scroll to the bottom of the page, enter the CRN and click submit. The page will reload. Scroll to the bottom, use the action column to choose wait-list, and click submit again. Scroll to the bottom of the page and verify that you have been wait-listed for the course.
To wait-list a course using the Class Search feature; login to the Online Services, choose the Registration menu, choose Add/Drop classes, scroll to the bottom of the page, and click Class Search. Here you can define the criteria for the course you are looking for. Once the course is identified select it and click Add to Worksheet. The Add/Drop classes page will reload. Submit the request. Scroll to the bottom, use the action column to choose wait-list, and click submit again. Scroll to the bottom of the page and verify that you have been wait-listed for the course.
With the exception of Summer term, wait listing will be available only in Phase 2 of the priority registration schedule.
Not all classes will have wait listing. Departments will choose which sections will have a wait list. The online schedule and course look up will display wait list details for each section including the wait list maximum and the remaining wait list seats.
All registration restrictions (prerequisites, major/minor/option, etc...), with the exception of Duplicates, Links, and Time conflicts, are enforced at the time a student wait lists the course. However any, duplicates, links, and time conflicts must be resolved at the time the student enrolls in the waitlisted course.
Wait listing remains active through Sunday midnight at the beginning of the second week of classes. Students may wait list up to 3 courses.
Once you are on the wait list for a course monitor your ONID email account frequently.
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 you attempt to register for the course the system will check for registration errors including; 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 waitlist.
