Student

The Office of the Registrar provides detailed information in this section about a myriad of topics that effect your academic career at OSU. Use this section to find out information about student services available to you. Also, learn how your information is handled by the university and how you can manage your student records.

The university has policies & regulations that govern actions that can be taken by students/faculty/staff; check them out. Detailed registration procedures are also provided here; including information on dates/deadlines, step-by step registration instructions, and even enrollment verification.

Finally, graduation is the goal so check out the information on monitoring your progress, commencement, and diplomas.

Graduation

Students should monitor their degree requirements throughout their academic career to ensure that they are on track when graduation approaches.

Students must apply for graduation and it is recommended that they apply three terms prior to the term in which they will meet their degree requirements.

Once you’ve applied you need to monitor the progress of your degree review.  It is the responsibility of the student to verify that their requirements are met and the degree awarded.

Finally, celebrate your accomplishment by receiving the diploma you’ve worked so hard for; better yet receive it at the commencement ceremony where you can celebrate with your friends, family, and classmates.

Frequently Asked Commencement Questions

Degree Requirements

Advising

Maintaining contact with your advisor is critical to the successful and timely completion of your degree requirements. Regular advising is required for undergraduate students. How often advising is required varies by college; contact your college head advising office for further information.

Academic Regulations

Degree requirements are identified in the Academic Regulations.

Postbaccalaureate Students

Postbaccalaureate students are required to have 32 credits in residence (Academic Regulation 26) as well as meet the 45-credit academic residency requirement defined in Academic Regulation 25.f. Some students have completed courses at Oregon State University as a nondegree-seeking student. The courses must have been taken after students have been awarded their first baccalaureate degree, regardless of where the degree was conferred. These courses can be considered for inclusion in the 32-credit requirement and the 45-credit academic residency requirement. Courses remain on the transcript as nondegree-seeking credits. An exception will be made in MyDegrees to reduce the credits required for academic residency based on the number of credits earned as a nondegree-seeking student. Up to 36 credits can be considered to be in compliance with Academic Regulation 1.b.

Former OSU Students Who Did Not Graduate

Former OSU students who contact the Registrar’s Office asking for transcripts and diplomas sometimes discover they did not, in fact, graduate. Reasons for this may include:

  • Students did not complete academic requirements in the term they applied for graduation and, after completing requirements in a subsequent term, the student did not reapply for graduation in the subsequent term.
  • Students assume they graduated because they received their diplomas at Spring Commencement, but the diplomas had to be cancelled due to unfulfilled graduation requirements or minimum grade/GPA requirements were not met.
  • Students who want to complete graduation requirements:
    • Must be a currently admitted student at Oregon State University. If not currently admitted, student must apply for re-admission via the Readmission Application form at: http://oregonstate.edu/registrar/sites/default/files/forms/re-admission-application-undergraduate-postbacc-nondegree.pdf
    • Can only be re-admitted to currently active programs. If the student’s program was terminated since leaving OSU, the student must select another program.
    • Need to apply for graduation in the next available term.
    • Must meet with their academic advisor to determine graduation requirements for the current program. Students must complete any additional requirements of the current program. If no additional course work is needed and the degree can be awarded, an official transcript note identifying the year the course work was completed will be added to the transcript.

Advising

Academic advising is invaluable to the successful completion of your education goals. Your academic advisor is there to provide guidance in regards to course selection, degree requirements, academic success strategies, career plans, and integration to the campus culture. Each academic college has developed an advising structure that facilitates the needs of their programs and students. However, all colleges recommend that you:

  1. Meet with your advisor once per term.
  2. Keep your PIN and GAP codes in a safe place.
  3. Take responsibility for learning your degree requirements.

You may contact the college head advisor for more information about the advising resources and requirements of your program.  Contact information for individual departments is available online under the subject area contacts heading.

General Catalog

You may view and search the general catalog online. The general catalog contains information about admissions procedures/policies, degree requirements, course descriptions, academic policies, and more. Use the catalog to research program requirements and to review the course descriptions of courses you are considering enrolling in.

Catolog Term

You are assigned a “catalog term” for your program. Your catalog term is the term in which you declared your current program of study (degree & major). You are subject to the program requirements that were in effect at that time. Use the general catalog that applies to your catalog term when reviewing your program requirements. There are archived catalogs for prior terms available online.

MyDegrees

From the very beginning of your academic career you have access to the MyDegrees degree audit tool to monitor your progress towards your degree.  To access the tool, click this link to MyDegrees.  You will be required to enter the login information for your student online services.  Then choose the Submit MyDegrees button and you will be taken directly to your MyDegrees degree checklist.  Keep in mind:

  1. Here you can review your Degree Checklist
  2. Your Planner is also available for use in future planning

The degree checklist will indicate which degree requirements are met by a check in the box to the left of the requirement.  Requirements that are expected to be met by in progress courses will appear with a blue box to the left.  Requirements that you still need to complete will have an empty box to the left and will have the words "Still Needed" in the course requirement area.  Bear in mind that the inclusion of in progress courses indicates where you will stand if you successfully complete all of your in progress courses.  You should review your audit again after the term is complete to verify the results. 

The audit is a useful tool for students, but it is not a replacement for regular consultation with your advisor.

Degree Clearance

Apply for Graduation

Students do not automatically get evaluated for graduation. They must apply for graduation via MyOSU (click on Student tab, then under My Student Stuff click on Apply to Graduate). It is recommended that students apply for graduation three terms prior to the term in which they intend to complete their degree requirements. Applications must be submitted no later than the end of the second week of the term in which the student plans to complete degree requirements

Double Degrees, Dual Majors, Honors Degrees, Certificates

According to Academic Regulation 26 a student may earn two or more degrees simultaneously. A student must complete a minimum of 32 credits above the minimum number of credits needed for one of the degrees. Students may also earn two or more majors within a single degree program, per Academic Regulation 27. Students completing the honors college curriculum receive a honors degree in the college of their major, e.g. HBS Honors Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, or HBA Honors Bachelor of Arts in English.

Monitoring Your Progress

The Office of the Registrar will communicate your progress to you in two ways:

  1. Emails will be sent to your ONID email account with information about the clearance process and any deficiencies you may have.
  2. Any deficiencies that would prevent the awarding of your degree will be recorded as a graduation hold on your record and are visible in your MyDegrees account accessed through MyOSU.

Apply for Graduation & Application Deadlines

Applications for graduation must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar. They may be filed up to three terms before the expected graduation term so progress can be monitored each term. However, applications must be submitted no later than the end of the second week of the term in which the student plans to complete degree requirements.

Please read the following before using the online application for graduation:

  • Undergraduates must be of senior standing before being eligible to submit an application.
  • The application will display your existing curriculum. If this curriculum is not the curriculum with which you intend to graduate; stop, exit the application, and meet with your advisor to change your program before returning to complete the application.
  • Students who wish to change graduation dates or program information after the first application must cancel their existing application for graduation and file a new application in accordance with the stated deadline.
  • Students receiving more than two degrees will need to contact the Registrar’s Office for assistance.

To submit an application for graduation:

Login to your MyOSU account using your ONID user name and password. Under My Student Stuff, click on Apply to Graduate.

Additional Application Functions

From the Student Records menu you may also view existing applications for graduation, cancel an existing application for graduation, and confirm your intention to attend commencement.

Footnotes:

* Conferral Date - the graduation date that appears on the diploma and transcript      

** Expected Degree Award Date - the date the Registrar's Office has completed final degree clearance and posts degree awarded status on transcripts. Only AFTER the degree awarded status is posted, are students' degrees officially awarded and visible on the official transcript.

Spring Diploma Availability Date - students who are on track with meeting graduation requirements and do not have any transfer work from other institutions may be eligible to receive their diploma on Commencement Day. For those who are eligible but are not attending Commencement, diplomas are available for pick-up the first business day after Commencement.

Students who have transfer work from other institutions will have to wait until their degrees are awarded (expected to take place by July 20, 2015) before obtaining their diploma.

Students in the Degree Partnership Program (DPP) may be eligible to receive their diploma on Commencement day. To be eligible, the Registrar’s Office must receive as close to final grades as possible from the instructor(s) teaching at the other institution. The instructor’s email must come from their institution email address and be sent to graduation@oregonstate.edu. It is the responsibility of the DPP student to notify their instructors to email OSU.

Double Degrees, Dual Majors, Honors Degrees, Certificates

Double Degrees

A student may earn multiple degrees simultaneously. Additional degrees may also be earned subsequent to a prior degree award. The degrees may be offered by the same college, or by different colleges. For each additional degree, a student must complete a minimum of 32 credits above the minimum number of credits needed for one degree. Each degree application is reviewed by the appropriate academic advisor. Advisors complete a separate graduation audit for each of the degrees. Each degree awarded will be recorded as a separate degree award on the student’s record. The student will also receive a separate diploma for each degree awarded (See Academic Regulation 26).

Some programs, such as the Education Double Degree or the International Degree, require that a primary degree be completed in order for the secondary degree to be awarded. When multiple degrees are not dependent on one another, one of the degrees may be awarded even though the requirements for the other degree is not yet met.

Dual (or Multiple) Majors

Though less common, a student may receive a single degree with multiple majors.  Often the number of credits required to complete the requirements for multiple majors allows a student to earn multiple degrees, but that is not always the case. Dual majors are most often obtained within the same college. The degree requirements for both majors are reviewed by your advisor.

When the degree is awarded there will be one degree award with two majors recorded on the student’s record. The student will receive one diploma. Dual majors may be obtained concurrently with the completion of the degree, or in some cases may be earned as a credential subsequent to completion of the degree (See Academic Regulation 27).

Honors Degrees

Students completing the honors college curriculum receive an honors degree in the college of their major, e.g. HBS Honors Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, or HBA Honors Bachelor of Arts in English. In some cases it might be possible for an Honors College student to earn multiple degrees simultaneously by following the double degrees requirements outlined in Academic Regulation 26.

Students seeking an honors degree must meet the requirements of the Honors College in order to receive their degree. Students that complete an Honors degree will have the honors degree recorded on their academic record. The student’s diploma will also include the honors degree designation (e.g. Honors Bachelor of Science, etc.).

Certificates

Students completing a certificate concurrently with their major must apply for graduation twice – one graduation application for the major and another graduation application for the certificate. When the certificate is awarded, it will be recorded on the student’s transcript.

Monitoring Your Progress

Keep your eye on the ball. Once you’ve applied to graduate you are responsible for monitoring your progress from the beginning of the process through the actual awarding of the degree. Don’t make any assumptions.

The Review

When an application for graduation is submitted the Office of the Registrar will inform your advisor that you are pending graduation for the term. Check your degree progress using your MyDegrees degree checklist by logging into MyOSU. If you haven’t done so recently, you should meet with your advisor to verify that you are on track to meet your requirements. Any unmet requirements indicated on your degree audit must be resolved prior to a degree being awarded.

College/departmental advisors will review your record to verify the completion of baccalaureate core, degree, major, minor, option, and college requirements. The Office of the Registrar verifies completion of the remaining institutional requirements.

Academic Regulation 25 defines Institutional Requirements for Baccalaureate Degrees. Questions regarding your ability to graduate as planned or regarding specific college/major/minor/option requirements should be directed to your academic advisor.

During the term in which you have applied to graduate, your record will be evaluated several times to determine if you have met graduation requirements. Any deficiencies will be recorded as a graduation hold on your student record. Check your holds by logging into MyOSU, under My Student Stuff click on View Holds. Also, continue to monitor your progress in MyDegrees. You will be responsible for monitoring your progress and checking your holds throughout your final term because your progress and holds will be updated continuously as changes to your record occur. Check your ONID email regularly.

What if I won’t meet my requirements as planned?

In the event that you will be unable to graduate at the end of the term for which you have applied you should cancel your existing application for graduation and submit a new application for the future term in which you will complete your requirements.

How do I know if I graduated?

Degree clearance requires approximately 4 weeks after the conclusion of the term.  When your degree requirements are completed your degree award will be posted to your transcript where you may view it. Also, the Office of the Registrar will send a notice of congratulation to your ONID student email address once your degree is awarded. It is your responsibility to consult your OSU transcript to confirm your degree award.

Commencement & Diplomas

Commencement

It is highly recommended that students, family, faculty, & staff take the opportunity to celebrate this momentous accomplishment. The university holds a single commencement ceremony each June. Students must RSVP their intention to attend via MyOSU (under My Student Stuff, click Apply to Graduate).

Frequently Asked Commencement Questions

Qualified Attendees

Graduates from the prior Summer through the upcoming Summer and Fall term may attend the Spring commencement. For example, commencement being held at the close of Spring term 2015 welcomes graduates from Summer 2014, Fall 2014, Winter 2015 and pending graduates for Spring 2015, Summer 2015, and Fall 2015. Detailed information is sent to eligible students in April of each year. This information will be sent to their current mailing address.

Reserve a Seat at Commencement

It is a university tradition to provide each student their own diploma at the commencement ceremony. To have their diploma available we have to know who is coming, therefore attendees are required to RSVP for the event. Students can RSVP their intention to attend via MyOSU (under My Student Stuff, click Apply to Graduate).

Degrees with Distinction

High achieving students are recognized through the posting of a title of academic distinction to their degree award and through the wearing of an academic honor cord as part of their graduation regalia. Grade point averages are computed on the basis of all work attempted at OSU. Graduates who have completed at least 90 credits at OSU or 60 upper-division credits at OSU, and who have an OSU cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher, are awarded an OSU degree with distinction as follows:

Academic Distinction

OSU GPA Range

Graduation
Honor Cord Color

Cum Laude

3.50–3.69

Orange

Magna Cum Laude

3.70–3.84

Gold

Summa Cum Laude

3.85–4.00

White

 

Candidates who have completed their degree in prior terms are eligible to wear Honor cords based on their completed OSU GPA and credits. For candidates pending Spring term graduation, eligibility to wear cords is based on the OSU institutional GPA and credit hours completed through Winter term. Candidates for Summer and Fall term graduation are not eligible to wear Honor cords at the Commencement Ceremony. When Spring term ends and final grades are posted, the Honors distinction will be evaluated and posted to eligible transcripts. If necessary, your diploma will be reprinted to reflect the Honors distinction. Honor cords may be purchased at the OSU Beaver Store.

Preliminary Grades

Commencement is held the Saturday following the conclusion of finals week. Spring term final grades are not yet available, however, we strive to provide diplomas to as many students as possible at commencement. The Registrar’s Office collects preliminary grades for pending graduates during the 7th week of the term to be utilized for a preliminary review of degree requirements.

Pending graduates who meet degree requirements based on preliminary review will receive their diploma at the commencement ceremony. Students who do not meet preliminary review requirements are welcome to attend the ceremony but will not receive their diploma at that time.

MyDegrees & Degree Clearance Issues

  • MyDegrees shows I’m on track to graduate; is there anything else I need to do? The MyDegrees audit is a good faith preliminary audit. After the term ends, a full audit will be completed during the degree clearance process, using final grades and final advisor and college input. You will be notified if there are any deficiencies at that time or you will receive a notification that you have successfully graduated.
  • MyDegrees says I need 212 credits for my 2 majors, but my advisor says I only need 180, how many do I need? The number of credits depends on whether you wish to pursue a Double Degree or a Double Major. Work with your advisor to determine the best option for you. MyDegrees will be adjusted when you apply to graduate to reflect the actual number of credits needed as a result of your choice of a Double Degree or Double Major.
  • How do I know if I graduated? Degrees are cleared approximately four weeks after the term ends. You can see if your degree has been awarded by checking your unofficial transcript in the MyOSU unofficial transcript section. Additionally, an email notifying you of your graduation status will be sent to your ONID account. Be sure to monitor your ONID email closely for a minimum of one month after the term for which you’ve applied to graduate.
  • Do I have to complete a foreign language? A foreign language is required by the Oregon University System (state of Oregon) and must be fulfilled prior to the awarding of any undergraduate degree (see Admissions Requirements).

Spring Candidates

  • I’m taking classes at another institution this term, can I still receive my diploma? Only students in the Degree Partnership Program (DPP) may be eligible to receive their diploma on Commencement day. To be eligible, the Registrar’s Office must receive as close to final grades as possible from the instructor(s) teaching at the other institution. The instructor’s email must come from their institution email address and be sent to graduation@oregonstate.edu. It is the responsibility of the DPP student to notify their instructors to email OSU. Students who are not in the DPP will have to wait until their final  transcripts are received from the other institution and degrees are awarded (expected to take place by July 21, 2015) before obtaining their diploma.
  • Will I receive my diploma at Commencement? The Registrar’s Office will make every attempt to provide your diploma on Commencement day. We review daily for missing preliminary grades, final grades, and transcripts in an effort to complete your degree audit before Commencement. If we are unable to complete your audit for any reason, you will receive a letter in your diploma case thanking you for participating in the ceremony. Upon final clearance, your diploma will be available for pick up at the Registrar’s Office.
  • I may be late to the ceremony; can I still receive my diploma? Diploma distribution is a finely tuned process, if you are late or get out of alphabetical order, you may not receive your diploma at the ceremony.
  • How can I verify that I will receive my diploma? Review your graduation holds! Holds for unresolved Y grades will not prevent the release of your diploma, but all other holds will prevent the release of your diploma.
  • When will I know if my degree audit has been successful? Approximately two weeks before Commencement and after preliminary grades have been received, all students whose audit was not successful will receive an email identifying the insufficiencies. This email serves to notify you that your diploma may not be available at Commencement; however, you are still eligible to attend Commencement. Some deficiencies may not be resolved until after final grades are received, or final transfer work is received. If the issues are not resolved before the Commencement ceremony, you will receive a thank you letter in your diploma case and your diploma will be available in the Registrar’s Office upon degree clearance.
  • I need another class in Summer/Fall, can I still participate in Commencement? If you realize you will be unable to complete your degree requirements in Spring term, you will want to move your application for graduation to a future term. Summer and Fall graduates are still eligible to participate in Commencement.
  • I’m failing a class and may have to take it over next term; can I still participate in Commencement? Yes, but you may not receive your diploma; instead you will receive a thank you for participating letter in your diploma case. If, at the completion of your class you are unsuccessful, you must change your application for graduation to a future term.
  • I’m not sure if I can complete my minor/option, can I still graduate? If your minor/option cannot be completed in the term you have applied to graduate, you must drop the minor at the Registrar’s Office, otherwise your graduation application will be cancelled. You may complete your minor in a future term as a credential seeking student.
  • Who can I contact for questions regarding my degree audit? Your academic advisor has the most information about your specific program of study and should be your first point of contact for questions related to your specific issues.
  • My preliminary grade was too low for graduation, but I’ll have it back up at the end of the term, do I need to notify someone? The Registrar’s Office monitors grades daily looking for improved preliminary grades or successful final grades. The hold will be removed as soon as an improved grade is received.
  • MyDegrees shows the preliminary grade now; do I need to notify someone? The Registrar’s Office monitors grades daily looking for preliminary grades; you should see the hold removed by the end of the day.

Diplomas

With the exception of Spring term, diplomas are available approximately 2 weeks after the posting of degrees.

Picking Up a Diploma in Person

The Academic Requirements Committee is a Faculty Senate committee that reviews student petitions for exceptions to Academic Regulations. Students are responsible for knowing and complying with the Academic Regulations and deadlines as published in the academic calendar. Students are responsible for reviewing and acknowledging Academic Requirement Committee petition guidelines for student petitions.

Visit the Late Registration page for detailed instructions for completing and submitting a petition request for a late change of registration.

Late Registration Petition Restrictions

Students who are academically suspended are denied all privileges of the institution and any organization in any way connected to it until they are reinstated to the university. Therefore, suspended students may not petition the ARC.

Students whose reason to seek an exception to a regulation is solely to alleviate a financial situation may wish to contact the OSU Business Affairs, 541-737-3775. Academic petitions are not approved to resolve financial concerns.

Request Reinstatement from Academic Suspension

Requests for reinstatement by exception are reviewed by the Academic Standing Committee. Students requesting reinstatement by exception must present all required materials to the Office of the Registrar by the stated filing deadline for the ASC meeting during which their request will be reviewed.

Requests for reinstatement under the conditions of Academic Regulation 22d are reviewed by the Office of the Registrar.

For detailed information on the reinstatement process visit the Request Reinstatement page.

Request Reinstatement

Academically suspended students are not eligible to utilize any of the services of the university unless they are academically reinstated.

The Academic Standing Committee

The Academic Standing Committee addresses requests for exception to Academic Regulation 22. Suspended students who are considering filing a Petition for Exception to the Reinstatement Regulations form (provided by the Registrar's Office) should meet with the head advisor of their college to discuss their options. The preparation process generally requires several days; students should allow sufficient time before the ASC meeting to gather and prepare all materials. Students with specific questions should contact their college head advisor, or the Registrar's Office.

The Committee on Academic Standing will consider requests for exceptions to the Reinstatement Rules only in those rare situations in which all four of the following conditions are met:

  1. The poor academic performance was the result of extraordinary circumstances that have been demonstrably corrected or substantially addressed, and should no longer adversely influence the student's academic performance. Documentation of these circumstances should be provided (i.e. medical records, obituaries or death certificates, etc.)
  2. The head advisor of the student's college, or the student's academic advisor, in consultation with the head advisor, is willing and able to argue convincingly that the student has a strong probability of completing the degree program to which the student would be reinstated.
  3. In addition to the poor academic performance, there is also evidence in the academic record of an ability to succeed academically and make timely progress toward completion of a degree program.
  4. The student provides a proposed schedule for the next three terms and a detailed plan to foster academic improvement, which have been reviewed and endorsed by the head advisor, or academic advisor, in consultation with the head advisor. Academic Performance Agreement.

The committee recognizes that there may be cases which require review and merit exception. Exceptions are imaginable where the term or terms of poor performance are somewhat isolated, and clearly linked to an extraordinary occurrence (such as a health problem) that has been ameliorated, or to unusually challenging circumstances whose impact on the student has been substantially relieved. It must be made clear, however, that exceptions will be granted only rarely. To warrant exception, the academic record should contain evidence that, in the absence of the problem asserted by the student as responsible for the poor performance, the student can succeed; more simply, there should be on record at least one term in which the student performed successfully in courses that contribute to progress toward a degree. Furthermore, the student must present a clear plan of action, endorsed by the head advisor, which includes a program of contact with recognized academic support staff. Finally, advocacy, and not mere "approval," by a head advisor, or by an academic advisor in consultation with the head advisor, is a crucial necessary condition for an exception. Students also may submit evidence of support from other representatives of recognized university support services in addition to, but not in lieu of, letters from departmental and college advisors.

Sept. 26, 2003

ASC Meeting Schedule

Meetings are held in the Registrar’s Conference Room, B102 Kerr Administration Building, unless otherwise noted.

Student Bereavement

Academic Advising Council
Guidelines for Students, Faculty and Professional Staff Regarding Student Bereavement

Oregon State University (OSU) recognizes students may experience times of grief and bereavement due to the loss of someone close. The development of the Student Bereavement Guidelines was a collaborative effort of the Faculty Senate Executive Committee and Academic Advising Council, Academic Affairs and the Office of the Dean of Student Life. The guidelines are intended to help students and faculty navigate a difficult situation while supporting academic success.

Students: In the unfortunate event that you experience the loss of a parent, guardian, sibling, spouse, roommate, or other person close to you, please notify or have a friend or family member notify your instructor(s) and academic advisor(s) if an absence is needed. Should you need to be absent from classes, please remember that you are responsible for providing documentation of the death or funeral services attended to your academic advisor(s). Documentation may include, but is not limited to a Memorial Service program or newspaper/website obituary notice.

If you are absent, upon your return to OSU please arrange to meet with your instructor(s) and advisor(s) to discuss options and strategies for catching up with missed academic work and for completing the term successfully, if possible. Consideration for academic assistance and the opportunity to complete the course are at the discretion of your instructor(s) and dependent on the nature of the course. Your advisor(s) can also help you access support resources in the OSU community, such as Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) and Religious Life at OSU staff. OSU recognizes that in the immediate aftermath of a tragic loss, the farthest thing from your mind may be your academic situation. However, when you are ready and able to resume your studies or to take appropriate steps affecting your academic future, we in the OSU community are available to help you.

For additional information regarding absences from classes or Academic Regulations, please refer to the Dean of Student Life FAQs page: http://oregonstate.edu/deanofstudents/faculty/absences

Faculty: The student is responsible for providing academic advisor(s) with documentation of the death or funeral service attended. The advisor(s) will notify instructors of the receipt of documentation. Documentation may include, but is not limited to, a Memorial Service program or newspaper/website obituary notice. Given proper documentation, the instructor may choose to excuse the student from class absences and provide the opportunity to earn equivalent credit and to demonstrate evidence of meeting the learning outcomes for missed assignments or assessments. Consideration for academic assistance and the opportunity to complete the course through alternate arrangements are at the discretion of the instructor and dependent on the nature of the course.

In support of these guidelines, it is hoped that OSU instructors will not penalize students who have provided verification of their bereavement needs. Additionally, OSU instructors are asked to offer reasonable compensatory experiences if appropriate, to ensure that students’ academic progress in the course will not be unduly compromised. These might include extending deadlines, allowing make-up exams, recalculating the weighting of scores from other course assignments or exams, or offering an Incomplete, to name a few. The Center for Teaching and Learning is available to consult with instructors about options for designing compensatory experiences (541-737-2804; ctl@oregonstate.edu). It is up to the instructor to determine what constitutes a reasonable compensatory experience in a given course.

Student Conduct and Community Standards

Students at OSU are expected to behave in a manner consistent with the code of Student Conduct and Community Standards, which stresses abiding by the law and treating one another with dignity and respect. Please familiarize yourself with the established standards and conduct yourself in a manner that will maintain and grow the special community that exists at OSU.

Student Jury Duty Service

Guidelines for Faculty and Professional Staff Regarding Student Jury Duty Service

Oregon State University supports students’ civic and legal responsibilities if called to serve on a jury while enrolled at OSU. Within this context, students who are called to serve on a jury should consult with their faculty and academic advisors about the impact of their jury service on their academic progress. In appropriate cases, students may ask the court to defer their service to a later term. In the event a student serves on a jury, the student is responsible for reporting her/his service and expected absences to instructors as soon as possible.

In support of this service, OSU faculty should not penalize students who have provided verification of their jury duty assignment under course attendance policies. Additionally, OSU faculty are expected to offer reasonable compensatory experiences to ensure that students’ academic progress in the course will not be unduly compromised. These might include extending deadlines, allowing make-up exams, or recalculating the weighting of scores from other course assignments or exams, to name a few. The Center for Teaching and Learning is available to consult with faculty about options for designing compensatory experiences, 541-737-2804; ctl@oregonstate.edu). It is up to the instructor to determine what constitutes a reasonable compensatory experience in a given course.

If a student is forced to withdraw from a course or a term due to a prolonged term of service on a jury, the University will work with the student to mitigate any potential institutional academic and/or financial hardship. Under these guidelines, university offices may consider jury duty among the legitimate reasons to consider granting an exception to policies regarding student financial obligations.  Again, it will be up to the student to initiate changes in her/his enrollment in consultation with academic advisors, the Office of the Registrar, Business Affairs, Housing and Dining Services, and the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.

Faculty may contact Susie Brubaker-Cole, Associate Provost for Academic Success and Engagement, with questions, 541-737-6164.

Students Called to Active Military Duty

The university has developed a policy to provide options to those students being deployed to active military duty. The deployment policy addresses registration, academic, and financial concerns.

Unauthorized Peer-to-Peer File Sharing and Other Copyright Infringement

The University takes copyright infringement seriously. As set forth in the Acceptable Use of University Computing Resources Policy, all students must abide by federal and state copyright laws when using University computing or network resources. The unauthorized publishing or use of copyrighted material on the University computer network is strictly prohibited and users are personally liable for the consequences of such unauthorized use. This specifically applies to Peer-to-Peer or P2P file-sharing of copyrighted music and movies. Students should be aware that by engaging in unauthorized sharing of copyrighted material, they not only violate university policy, but they may also be held criminally and civilly liable by federal and/or state authorities.

Under current copyright law, criminal cases of copyright violation carry a penalty of up to five (5) years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Civil penalties for copyright infringement include a minimum fine of $750 for each work. Oregon State University will subject students who violate this policy to discipline as appropriate. For a first-time violation of this copyright policy, students are required to pass a copyright quiz within 72-hours or else their network access is disabled. Repeated infringement is subject to disciplinary action by the office of Student Conduct and Community Standards, up to and including expulsion from the University.

The policy regarding Unauthorized Peer-to-Peer (P2P) File Sharing and Other Copyright Infringement is available in its entirety for review.

Undergraduate Planned Educational Leave Program

The Undergraduate Planned Educational Leave Program is designed to allow a student to pursue other activities that will assist them in clarifying their educational goals, such as job opportunities and experiences away from campus, military deployment, time to resolve personal or medical problems, or other similar pursuits. The PELP allows an undergraduate student to temporarily suspend their academic work for a period of time (in accordance with AR 13a, 13b, and 13c), and resume their studies with minimal procedural difficulties. Utilization of PELP reserves the student’s right to keep their original academic catalog active during their absence. PELP should be used if the student will be absent for four or more terms.

The PELP is available to students who meet the following conditions:

  • Must be an undergraduate student
  • PELP may only be requested one time in the course of a student's academic career (Military deployments are an exception to this limitation. All military personnel who are deployed for military service may submit a voluntary leave request for each deployment.)
  • PELP petitions must be file before the end of the next regular academic term (Fall, Winter, & Spring) after the last term attended
  • Students who have been suspended from OSU for academic and/or conduct reasons are not eligible for PELP

Important Things to Know about PELP:

  • PELP can be applied to as many as six consecutive regular academic terms (not including the summer terms).
  • Submitting a petition for PELP does not withdraw a student from their courses for the current or future terms.
  • There is a $25 non-refundable application fee.
  • PELP began with the 2011–2012 academic year (Summer 2011). Any former OSU students who attended OSU prior to the 2011–2012 academic year and have been absent for four or more consecutive regular academic terms will be held to OSU’s prior policy that resets the academic catalog to the catalog in effect at the time they return to OSU.
  • A notation of the dates of any approved leave will be indicated on each student’s official transcript.
  • Students receiving financial aid need to contact the Financial Aid Office.
  • International students and student athletes should work with their respective advisors prior to filing for PELP.
  • Any student who utilizes PELP and does not return by the specified term will be inactivated and required to file for readmission, resulting in the appropriate adjustment to their catalog term in effect at the time they return to OSU. This will change their baccalaureate core, degree, and major requirements.

To apply for PELP:

  • Complete the PELP form.
  • Obtain all required approvals.
  • Return the completed form to the Office of the Registrar (B102 Kerr Administration Bldg.) for review.

Grades & Your GPA

The OSU grading system & GPA Calculation

Academic Regulations 17–19 describe the OSU grading system.  The available grades and their associated point values are explained. Here you can also learn about the alternative grading system and the rules associated with these systems.

Academic Regulation 19 describes the process by which GPA’s are calculated at OSU. Each grade is assigned a point value which is used in the calculation of the student’s GPA. A GPA calculator is also available online for the convenience of students.

Incomplete Grades

As stated in Academic Regulation 17 if circumstances exist which are acceptable to the instructor and the rest of the academic work is passing an incomplete grade may be assigned and additional time granted for completion of course work. The additional time granted shall not exceed one year. At the time the incomplete is submitted an alternate grade, that represents the grade the student would receive in the course if no further course work is completed, will also be submitted. If the incomplete is not removed within the one year deadline the alternate grade will become the grade of record.

Do not enroll in the course again for a future term if you have received an incomplete in the course.

OSU Grading System

The OSU grading system is described by 3 academic regulations.

  1. Academic Regulation 17 Lists grades in the OSU grading system.
  2. Academic Regulation 18 Describes the alternative grading system. Knowing how alternative grading is applied will help you make informed decisions regarding your academic record. 
  3. Academic Regulation 19 describes the point system and provides an example of how to perform the calculation. Knowledge is power, so understand how your GPA is calculated.

GPA Calculation

Incomplete Grades

The “incomplete” grade policy as stated here is effective for incompletes assigned Fall 2007 forward.  To reference the incomplete policy for prior years consult archived copies of the general catalog. Refer to Academic Regulation 17 for more information.

Requesting an Incomplete

A student may request that an incomplete (for a course that has not been completed) be granted by an instructor, if the reasons for the incomplete are acceptable to the instructor, and so long as the student is passing the course at the time the request was made. It is recommended that at the time an agreement is made to issue an incomplete that the instructor and student complete a Contract for Completion of I Grade to define the terms under which the incomplete will be completed.

The incomplete/alternate grade

The incomplete that is filed by the instructor at the end of the term must include an alternate/default grade to which the incomplete grade defaults, if the student does not make an effort to resolve the incomplete course work within one year of recording the incomplete. Examples of the new incomplete grades are (I/A, I/A-, I/B+, I/B, I/B-, I/C+, I/C, I/C-, I/D+, I/D, I/D-, I/F, I/P, and I/N). Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory (S/U) grade options are converted after the submission of the “I/Alternate Grade” is determined by the instructor. For example, if the student has requested an incomplete and has opted for an S/U grade, the instructor will submit an “I/Normal Grade” (e.g., I/B+) at the end of the term. The Office of the Registrar will subsequently convert the “I/Normal Grade” to an “I/S” or “I/U” in accordance with the grading option chosen by the student.

Calculating the alternate grade

The calculation of the Alternate/Default Grade is determined by the work to be completed for the course over the entire term. For example, while a student may be passing at the time the incomplete request is granted, the Alternate/Default Grade is NOT what the student has earned up to the point of the incomplete request. The Alternate/Default Grade is what grade the student would have earned if the instructor includes what was completed and if the student did no more work from the point of the incomplete request to the end of the term.

    Example

    A student has earned a “B” through the eighth week of the term, but requests an incomplete for the rest of the term. The remaining work would comprise 50% of the final grade. Without completing the remaining work the earned grade would have been an “F”. The student, consequently, would have an “I/F” filed by the faculty/instructor at the end of the term when grades are reported to the Office of the Registrar.

    Outcomes:

    A. If the student does not complete the assigned work within one year’s time or within the time allotted by the faculty/instructor, the instructor can change the grade to an “F” or the grade would default to an “F” after a year.

    B. If the student completes the work, the faculty would replace the incomplete with whatever grade the student earned as part of the incomplete.

Impact on Degree Conferrals:

Another aspect of the revised Incomplete Policy in Academic Regulation 17 affects the degree audit completed for students who have applied to graduate from Oregon State University. Beginning Fall 2007, all pending applications for graduation will include a review of any incomplete grades with an alternate/default grade. If an “I/Alternate Grade” is currently outstanding at the time a pending graduate’s file is being reviewed for graduation (which happens after grades are processed for the term in which the student is graduating), that review will take into account the automatic default of the incomplete to the Alternate/Default Grade. This automatic default may impact a student’s ability to graduate, if by its inclusion, the student’s GPA (major GPA or institutional GPA) or other major/institutional requirements are altered. This encourages the student to ensure that all “I/Alternate Grades” are resolved with their instructor prior to the last day of Dead Week for the term in which they are graduating. Note: Academic Regulation 17 specifically states: “Under no circumstances shall a student who earns an A-F grade or an N or U grade have their grade changed retroactively to an I grade.”

Extension of Time to Remove Incomplete Grade

A student may petition via the Office of the Registrar for an extension of the one calendar year deadline with the concurrence of the faculty. An approved petition will grant an extension of a single additional term, with a maximum of three total extensions being possible. An approved petition for an extension of time to remove an incomplete will be voided at the time of degree conferral. The petition must be submitted before the one year deadline is reached.

To request an extension complete the Petition Extension of Time to Remove Incomplete Grade form. Instructor and departmental approval is required. Submit the completed petition and a completed Contract for Completion of I Grade to the Office of the Registrar. If all documents are provided, the instructor and department approve, and the student is eligible, an extension of a single term will be granted. To request an additional terms extension the process must be repeated.

Incomplete Grade FAQ's

Q: When is the last point at which an incomplete grade can be resolved by the student?

A: Typically, it is within a time period established by the instructor. If the instructor has not established a deadline, then the student has until the last day of Dead Week before finals begin, to submit the required work to the faculty a year after the term in which the student received the incomplete. For example, if a student received an “I/Alternate Grade” in the Fall 2007 without any specified deadline by an instructor, they have until the last day of Dead Week of Fall 2008 to turn in the completed work to the instructor to complete the “Incomplete”. The instructor has until the last day for turning in grades in that term to submit the removal of an incomplete to whatever grade the student earned to the Office of the Registrar.

Q: What happens if the instructor is no longer at the institution a year after the “I/Alternate Grade” was recorded?

A: The student should meet with the Department Chair who offered the course to reinstate the expectations of what would need to be completed (and by when it needs to be completed) for the incomplete to reflect the earned grade for that course.

Q: What if the student requests an “I/Alternate Grade” but also intends on graduating that very same term?

A: The student should know whether the Alternate/Default Grade will impact their ability to graduate that same term. If it does, the student should withdraw the request to graduate at the Office of the Registrar before the last day of final exams for that term, until the incomplete has been resolved at some future date/term and an earned grade has been recorded. Subsequent to the earned grade replacing the incomplete, the student can then re-file to graduate.

Q: What if the student has applied to graduate, final grades have been processed for the term the student wished to graduate; and the “I/Alternate Grade” defaults to a grade that does affect their graduation status. Can the student request the Alternate Grade revert back to an incomplete?

A: No. Academic Regulation 17 specifically states: “Under no circumstances shall a student who earns an A-F grade or an N or U grade have their grade changed retroactively to an I grade.” Students need to pay careful attention to “I/Alternate Grades” that are clearly displayed on all unofficial (and official) transcripts and the “Grade Term Report” via the Student On-Line Services web site where a student’s grades can be accessed by the student. If the student suspects or is informed by their academic advisor or the Office of the Registrar that the “I/Alternate Grade” will negatively impact their ability to graduate, they should go to the Office of the Registrar to withdraw their application to graduate. This request to withdraw the application to graduate must be made before all grades are processed for the term in which the student wishes to graduate.

Q: What if an instructor does not turn in their grades on time, will the instructor still be able to submit an “I/Alternate Grade for the student?

A: Yes. While 99.7% of all grades are turned in by the required deadline for each term, if the instructor misses the cutoff for turning in grades the Office of the Registrar will be able to process these late grades (including the “I/Alternate Grade”) and ensure they are correctly attributed to the students affected.

Q: Will other incomplete (“I”) grades from terms prior to Fall 2007 also default to an alternate grade (i.e., an “F”) after a year or when a student applies to graduate?

A: No. The revised Academic Regulation 17 goes into effect for Fall 2007 and all future terms. It is not retroactive to previous terms. Incompletes for all terms prior to Fall 2007 are at the discretion of the instructor and can either be changed to an earned grade or remain as an incomplete indefinitely. These grades are clearly identified by the lack of an alternate grade. For example, an “I” denotes the incomplete was assigned by the instructor prior to Fall 2007. All incompletes from Fall 2007 on would be reflected as an “I/Alternate Grade” (I/A, I/A-…I/F, I/P, I/N, etc.).

Q: Does Academic Regulation 17 apply only to undergraduate students, or are other student populations similarly affected?

A: All students are held to the same grading systems. Academic Regulation 17 will apply equally to undergraduates, post-baccalaureates, graduate, non-degree seeking students, etc.

Q: What will we see on our unofficial and official transcripts?

A: Students will see the incomplete and the alternate grade (i.e., I/A, I/A-…I/F, I/P, I/N, etc) in the grade field. However, until the incomplete is resolved, it will retain all of the same characteristics of an incomplete grade. In other words, the incomplete will not count in credits earned or a student’s institutional GPA. This will ensure that a student will not have an incomplete grade count in their credit totals or have it affect their GPA until the incomplete is resolved or defaults to the Alternate Grade.

Q: If a student selected a grading option of Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory (S/U), will the instructor assign an “I/S” or “I/U” during the submittal of the grades for that term the incomplete was requested?

A: No. Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory (S/U) grade options are converted after the submission of the “I/Alternate Grade” is determined by the instructor. For example, if the student has requested an incomplete and has opted for an S/U grade, the instructor will submit an “I/Normal Grade” (i.e., I/B+) at the end of the term. The Office of the Registrar will subsequently convert the “I/Normal Grade” to an “I/S” or “I/U” in accordance with the grading option chosen by the student.

Q: What happens if a course had received an “I/Alternate Grade” the first time the course was taken, but the student retakes the course for a grade?

A: According to Academic Regulation 20 (Repeated Courses), both courses would appear on the student’s academic record (transcript), but only the second grade would be counted in the cumulative GPA and toward graduation requirements. Even if the “I/Alternate Grade” were to subsequently default to the Alternate Grade, the second taking of the course would be the one that counts.

Q: What happens if a student’s academic progress in a given term is interrupted by an emergency situation (serious illness, accident, or death of a family member)? Can the student request incompletes for all his/her courses?

A: Yes. Subsequent to the revision to Academic Regulation 17, the Faculty Senate also approved a revision to Academic Regulation 13c that allows the student to withdraw within the last four weeks of the term with incompletes in all subjects. The student (or family member), however, must submit evidence of the emergency situation to the Registrar for consideration. The Office of the Registrar is then charged with contacting each instructor and recording the individual “I/Alternate Grade” for each course the student is still enrolled for that term.

Q: Can a student petition for an extension to resolve the incomplete in excess of the one year?

A: Possibly. The instructor must be willing to provide an extension. However, if the instructor does not agree to extend the timeline, it is unlikely anyone else would supersede that decision. If the instructor is willing to extend the timeline, the student can get a copy of the OSU Petition for Approval and fill in the Incomplete section for the extension. This document can be obtained at the Office of the Registrar. It will require the signature of the instructor who taught the course, the Department Chair for the course, and potentially the approval of the Academic Requirements Committee to gain approval of the extension.

Q: Who can the student talk with if there are specific questions regarding the changes to Academic Regulation 17?

A: The students are encouraged to ask questions of their departmental or college advisors and/or to contact staff in the Office of the Registrar. Students are encouraged to call by phone (541-737-4331), utilize e-mail (registrars@oregonstate.edu), or visit in-person 102 Kerr Administration Building with questions.

Child Attending School

Students receiving child support payments from a parent or guardian and who are attending OSU may be required to provide proof of school attendance. Students must complete the student portion of a Oregon Department of Justice Child Attending School Confirmation Form (ORS 107.108) and bring it to the OSU Registrar’s Office for completion and verification of enrollment.

The Registrar’s Office will confirm a student’s enrollment for the current term. If OSU is between terms at the time of the request, attendance will be based on the previous term. A Verification of Enrollment form may be attached in that situation.

Oregon State University evaluates a student’s ability to work toward their degree in multiple ways. When responding to a Child Attending School Confirmation Form pursuant to ORS 107.108, Oregon State University will use the following definitions in ORS 107.108:

“Attending at least half time” means the student is registered for 6 or more quarter credit hours. Please note that it is the responsibility of the student to request a modified form if registered as a Degree Partnership Program student and is taking credits at both OSU and a community college partner.

Maintaining satisfactory academic progress” means the student has one of the following standings:

  • Good Standing, including by default of meeting admissions standards if no formal standing has been determined from grading yet;
  • Academic Warning if the student is enrolled at least half time and working toward their degree; or
  • Academic Probation if the student is enrolled at least half time and working toward their degree.

Eligibility to Register

Prior to enrolling in your courses take the time to make sure you are eligible to register.


How do I know if I’m eligible to Register?

If you are admitted to the university for the term, are a currently active OSU student, and are not on academic suspension, then you are eligible to enroll in courses.


Newly Admitted Students

Newly admitted undergraduates need to attend an orientation prior to registering for courses. Visit New Student Programs & Family Outreach for details about required orientation programs. Upon completing orientation and advising you will be issued a Registration PIN number which you will need to enter at the time of registration.

Newly admitted graduate students are not required to obtain advising prior to registration and may login to MyOSU and register in accordance with the priority registration schedule.

New Distance Education students will need to complete the Ecampus online orientation. Completion of the online orientation will result in notification to your academic advisor that you are ready for an appointment for advising.

Continuing Students

Undergraduate students of eligible academic standing may reenroll by obtaining advising and their registration PIN in accordance with the policies of their academic college.

Graduate students in compliance with the continuous enrollment policy may enroll in courses as soon as they are eligible and no registration pin is required.

Returning Students

Undergraduate/non-degree/postbaccalaureate students who have been absent four or more terms, not including summer terms, and wish to reenroll must complete a Re-Admission Application and return it to the Office of the Registrar.

Graduate students are eligible to enroll if they are in compliance with the continuous enrollment policy of the Graduate School. Graduates students seeking readmission will need to follow the Graduate School’s admission procedures.

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 who 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.

Registration Holds

When you attempt to register, the registration system will inform you of any registration holds you may 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.

Non-degree Students

Once admitted to the university, non-degree students are eligible to register according to the date and time assigned to non-degree students in the priority registration schedule. Advising and registration PINs are not required for non-degree students.

Academic Suspension

If you were suspended at the end of a prior term, you are not eligible to register. To become eligible to enroll you must request and be approved for reinstatement. Reinstatement request forms are available at the Office of the Registrar. If you are currently registered for a future term, you will be disenrolled.

Plan Your Schedule

Advising

Academic advising is invaluable to successfully completing your education goals. Your academic advisor is there to provide guidance in regards to course selection, degree requirements, academic success strategies, career plans, and integration to the campus culture. Each academic college has an advising structure that facilitates the needs of their programs and students. However, all colleges recommend that you:

1) Meet with your advisor once per term.

2) Keep your PIN and GAP codes in a safe place.

3) Take responsibility for learning your degree requirements.

You may contact the college head advisor for more information about the advising resources and requirements of your program. Contact information for individual departments is available online under the subject area contacts heading.

 

Baccalaureate Core

Baccalaureate Core course offerrings are available in the course catalog. Use this tool to search for course offerrings by term, category, campus, and more.

 

General Catalog

The online general catalog contains information about admissions procedures and policies, degree requirements, course descriptions, academic policies, and more. Use the catalog to research program requirements and to review the course descriptions of courses you are considering enrolling in.

 

MyDegrees Planner

In consultation with your advisor you will develop a degree plan using the Planner function of your MyDegrees plan. You may create more than one plan. It is advisable to have an alternate plan in the event that you are unable to enroll in all of the courses you intended. On your registration date/time have your MyDegrees Planner open to assist you in registering for the courses required for your major and degree. You may search for available courses during registration using the Class Search feature in Online Services or via your MyOSU account.

The online schedule of classes is available on the Web for planning purposes. You can view up-to-date information about course offerings, course times, instructors, and locations. You may search for courses according to subject, type, graduate/undergraduate level courses, or other criteria. Undergraduate students often use the schedule to search for baccalaureate core courses required for their degree. You may view the Baccalaureate Core Courses Video Tutorial for instructions on how to search the schedule for baccalaureate core courses.

Priority Registration

What is priority registration?

The priority registration schedule assigns students dates and times for registering according to their student status and credits earned. The registration schedule is separated into two phases. During the first phase undergraduate students are only eligible to enroll in a maximum of 16 credits and waitlisting is not available. You may enroll from your eligibility date until the end of Phase I. At the close of Phase I registration is closed for a business day while the system is enabled for Phase II. During Phase II of registration you may waitlist courses that have waitlisting available and the maximum credits for undergraduates is raised to 19.

The priority registration schedule

The schedule displayed here represents a range of dates and times during which students meeting the stated criteria will be eligible to register. For detailed information about your registration dates and times, log into MyOSU, click on the Student tab, and under Registration Tools select "View Priority Registration Status.” Here you will see the specific dates and times assigned to you for Phase I and Phase II of registration. Your registration status and times will be available approximately one week before registration begins.

Finding Courses

The first step to furthering your education is to find the course(s) that you want to enroll in. There are a number of tools to help you find courses that will meet your needs.

Search for classes via MyOSU.

You may access the Class Search feature through your MyOSU account to search for courses for terms that are open to registration. (Steps: Login to MyOSU, click Student tab, under Registration Tools click on Look Up Classes, then follow the directions.) Once you find a course you wish to enroll in you can add it to your worksheet and keep searching or you can submit the change immediately and be enrolled in the course immediately if there are no impediments. For a more detailed explanation of how to search for courses from within the Registration menu view the Add A Course video tutorial.


Search for courses using the online Schedule of Classes

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.

Need to find a baccalaureate core course?

Watch our Baccalaureate Core Courses Video Tutorial or go straight to the baccalaureate core courses section of the general catalog.

Do you have concerns about building accessibility?

Visit the campus accessibility site maintained by Disability Access Services and learn the about the accessibility of buildings on campus.

Interested in taking an online course?

Visit Ecampus to find out more information about online courses.

Do you need to search for a course from a prior term?

You can access schedule of classes for previous terms online to search for courses offered in previous terms up to two years past.

PDFs of past schedules of classes by campus also are available in ScholarsArchives@OSU.

Register

Adding Courses

You can register for a course online from the time of your priority registration date/time through the end of the add/drop period, which is the end of the second week of classes.  The add/drop deadline date for each term is defined in the academic calendar. Courses added during the second week of classes require departmental approval in the form of an electronic override.

What if I just want to sit-in on a course (aka audit)?

You may not attend a course for which you are not registered. With instructor approval courses may be taken on an audit basis for no grade or credits. All applicable tuition and fees are charged for audit registration. This is accomplished by completing an Audit Registration form and returning it to the Office of the Registrar by the end of the second week of the term.

How do I change the number of credits on my course?

If the course is available for a variable number of credits you may change the credits on the course throughout the add/drop period. To do so during the second week of classes requires an override from the department.

What do I do if I don’t meet the restrictions on the course?

Contact the department offering the course to discuss your options. 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.

Adding classes during the 2nd week of classes

To add a class during the second week of the term requires an override from the department offering the course. Contact the department directly for their particular policies and procedures for receiving an override. Once an override is entered you must return to your registration and enroll in the course; it is not done for you by the deparment.

Can I get on a waitlist if the course I want to enroll in is closed?

If a course is closed you may monitor the enrollment throughout the add/drop period and enroll if a seat opens. Beginning in Phase II of registration students may register to be on the waitlist for courses that have waitlisting available. Waitlisting for a course is not a guarantee that you will be enrolled in the course.

Late Registration

Late change of registration petitions may be submitted to the Office of the Registrar. The petition will be reviewed and referred to the Academic Requirements Committee for review as necessary.

Registration Dates and Deadlines

Do you want to add another course or perhaps drop a course that you are enrolled in? You only have until a certain point in the term to do so. Familiarize yourself with the registration dates and deadlines so that you are not caught unawares.

Adding Courses

Courses can be added online from your priority registration date through the end of the add/drop period defined in the academic calendar.

Watch a video to learn how to enroll in courses

If you’ve never registered for courses at OSU before watch the Add A Course Video to get started.


Class Search

You may use the Class Search feature in MyOSU to find and register for courses. Login to MyOSU, choose the Student Tab, then Registration tools, choose Add/Drop classes, scroll to the bottom of the page, and click the Class Search button. Here you can define the criteria for the course(s) you are looking for. Review the search results to determine what course(s) you will enroll in. Once the course is identified select it. Add it to your worksheet if you intend to continue searching for more courses. Once you have selected all of the courses you wish to enroll in click Register. The screen will reload and display the courses you were successfully enrolled in. If you were not enrolled in a course there will be an error message that explains why you were not enrolled in the course. Note: The Class Search feature cannot be used if you have received an override to enroll in a closed class.

Number of Registration Attempts Allowed

During the Registration process it can be tempting to use Auto Refresh features of your web browser or other automated processes such as bots to attempt to register for classes. However, registration attempts are limited, after which your account is locked and all registration activity including Add, Drops, Withdraws and Credit changes will need to be made in person at the Office of the Registrar.

MyDegrees Planner

Now is the time to use the plan you and yoru advisor developed using the Planner feature in your MyDegrees. Login to the MyOSU and choose the MyDegrees option from the My Student Stuff menu. Now choose the Planner tab. Use the drop down box to choose the plan that you intend to build your registration from. Load that plan. Note, you'll need to identify the CRN's of the course sections you intend to enroll in. This can be accomplished by clicking on the still needed course in your degree checklist in the left hand column, this will load information about that course including when it is scheduled, the CRN, and the available seats in the course. You can also search for the courses in the schedule of classes to identify the sections you intend to register for.

Once the plan is loaded, open another browser window, log back into MyOSU, enter the Registration menu, choose Add/Drop classes, and scroll to the bottom of the page. Here you may enter the CRN’s of the courses you wish to enroll in and click the submit button or you can use the class search feature to find the CRN's of the courses on your plan. The screen will reload and display the courses you were successfully enrolled in. If you were not enrolled in a course there will be an error message that explains why you were not enrolled in the course.

Overrides

If you receive an electronic override from a department to allow you to enroll in a course from which you would otherwise be restricted you must return to MyOSU to enroll in the course. You will not be enrolled by the department providing the override. If you receive an override to enroll in a closed course you must enter the CRN of the course in the boxes on the add/drop pages and submit the registration change from there. If you attempt to use the Class Search feature you will receive the error message “course does not exist”.

Audit Registration

Audit registration cannot be completed online. Do not register for a course that you intend to audit. Students may register for a course on an audit basis by obtaining instructor approval. Registering for a course on an audit basis incurs the same tuition and fees as normal registration. The completed Audit Registration Form must be returned to the Office of the Registrar during the second week of classes. In accordance with the audit registration period defined in the academic calendar the audit registration form will be accepted no earlier than Monday of the second week of classes and no later than Friday of the second week.

Change Course Credits

The credits for a course cannot be changed from those published in the schedule of classes. However, some courses are offered with a range of possible credits. When students enroll in courses with variable credits they are automatically enrolled in the course for one credit only. It is the responsibility of the student to alter their registration within the add/drop period to reflect the number of credits they will be completing.

Registration Restrictions

Courses can be restricted to only allow the appropriate student population to enroll in the course. Restrictions can include prerequisite requirements, major/minor/option restrictions, class standing restrictions, and more.

Before beginning registration verify you meet any course restrictions associated with the courses you intend to register for. Course restrictions are listed in the schedule of classes. Don’t be caught off guard at the time of registration.

To request an explanation of or an exception to the restriction(s) associated with a course contact the department that is offerring the course.

Second Week Adds

With departmental approval students can enroll in courses online during the second week of the term. Inform the department of all restrictions that would prevent you from enrolling in the course (closed course, major/minor/option restriction, etc.). The department will need to provide an override for each restriction as well as second week approval. Departmental approval is provided in the form of an electronic override. Contact the department that offers the course to request an override.

Once an override is entered you need to login MyOSU again to enroll in the course. You will not be enrolled by the department providing the override. If you receive an override to enroll in a closed course you must enter the CRN of the course in the boxes on the add/drop pages and submit the registration change from there. If you attempt to use the Class Search feature you will receive the error message “course does not exist”.

Waitlisting Courses

If the course you want to enroll in is closed see if it has an available waitlist. Courses can be waitlisted online during Phase II of registration; refer to the priority registration calendar.

Watch a how-to video about how to waitlist courses

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 MyOSU, click on the Student tab, and under Registration Tools 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 waitlist, and click submit again. Scroll to the bottom of the page and verify that you have been waitlisted for the course.

To waitlist a course using the Class Search feature: Login to MyOSU, click on the Student tab, and under Registration Tools 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 waitlist, and click submit again. Scroll to the bottom of the page and verify that you have been waitlisted for the course.

Waitlist Information

With the exception of Summer term, waitlisting will be available only in Phase 2 of the priority registration schedule.

Not all classes will have waitlisting. Departments choose which sections will have a waitlist. The online schedule and course look up will display waitlist details for each section including the waitlist maximum and the remaining waitlist 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 waitlists the course. However, any duplicates, links, and time conflicts must be resolved at the time the student enrolls in the waitlisted course.

Waitlisting remains active through Sunday midnight at the beginning of the second week of classes. Students may waitlist up to 3 courses.

Check out our WL FAQs for more information.

How does it work?

Once you are on the waitlist 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 waitlist.

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 waitlist and the available seat will be passed on to the next student on the waitlist.

Summer Term Withdrawal: Students may withdraw from any courses during Summer term as indicated by the appropriate session deadlines. A student who remains enrolled in a course(s) after the Withdraw Course deadline for a session is responsible for completing the course(s) in that session and is not eligible for a university withdrawal for the Summer term. A student who has dropped/withdrawn from all Summer session courses in accordance with posted deadlines will be considered as having withdrawn from the university for the term. University withdrawal processing will be completed at the conclusion of the Summer term. Note: Withdrawals resulting from a university withdrawal (as defined in Academic Regulation 13) do not count in the undergraduate 12-Class withdrawal limit specified in Academic Regulation 12.


What does it mean to Withdraw from the University for the Term?

If you are enrolled in courses as of the first day of the term and elect to drop/withdraw from all of your courses for the term, you are withdrawing from the university for the term. The withdrawal is only effective for the term in which you drop/withdraw your courses. If you are enrolled in a future term and do not wish to be, you must cancel your registration for that term or you will remain enrolled in, and responsible for, your enrolled courses.

Your transcript will reflect your withdrawal from the university in the form of a comment that indicates that you withdrew for the term and the effective date of the withdrawal. If the withdrawal is completed during the withdrawal period (weeks 3 to 10), all currently enrolled courses will be assigned a W grade indicating you withdrew from the courses after the drop period. The W grade indicates the course was not completed, no credits were earned, and it is not used in the computation of the grade-point average.

Can I enroll again in the future?

Withdrawing from the current term does not affect your ability to enroll in future terms. Provided that you meet the enrollment eligibility requirements for continuing students you may enroll in courses online in accordance with established registration procedures.

Exams

Here is the opportunity to show off what you've learned. Make sure you know where and when your exams are being held.

Where is my midterm/final exam?

The final exam time of a course is most often determined by the first meeting date and time of the course. For example a course that meets for the first time on Monday at 0800 may have a final exam time of Wednesday at 1200. You can view the final by class meeting hours schedule by term. The final exam is typically held in the regular meeting location for the course. An instructor may request a different date, time, and/or location for the final exam so follow any instructions given by your professor.

Courses with multiple sections may request group midterms or finals. Use these links to the web-viewer tool to see the date, time and location of:


Exam Conflicts

In accordance with the exam conflict resolution policy, instructors who can make arrangements to reschedule an exam for a student may do so upon their own authority; no further approvals are required. If the instructor is unable to accommodate a rescheduled exam time a student may complete a Petition to Change Time of Final Exam. As stated in the Petition to Change Time of Final Exam policy, disapproved petitions may be reviewed by the dean of the college and, if necessary, through the dean it may be forwarded to the Office of the Registrar for review.

Final Exams

Final exams are 110 minutes in length and scheduled according to the first class meeting or, in the case of group finals, according to the group final schedule (available by clicking on Group Finals on the Registrar's home page under Grading and Exams). Instructors may request to change the time of their final exam in accordance with the final examination policy. The request must be submitted by the end of the fifth week of the term and include the endorsement of the department chair and dean. If approved accommodations must be made to provide the exam on the originally scheduled date and time for those students that are unable to take the exam at the new date/time. Final exams are not to be held during dead week. Any requests to hold a final exam during dead week must be addressed to the Academic Requirements Committee.

Group Exams

Group exams are given in accordance with the criteria of the group midterm examination policy or the group final exam policy.

Who qualifies for a group exam? Courses with three or more sections and enrollment of 150 or more students may qualify for a group midterm or final.

How does a department request a group exam? Departments may request a group midterm by forwarding a request, endorsed by the dean, to the Office of the Registrar no later than the second Friday of the term. Requests for a group final must be endorsed by the dean and submitted to the Office of the Registrar in time to meet the publication deadline for the forthcoming Schedule of Classes.

Diploma/Transcript Notarization & Apostille

Who needs this service? Is this an Apostille?

Students who apply for jobs or admission to universities in other countries often need a notarized diploma or transcript in order to submit them to the Oregon Secretary of State to obtain an Apostille. This is the first step in the Apostille process. Some employers in the U.S. may also ask for a transcript or diploma to be notarized for authenticity. Only the Office of the Registrar can certify Oregon State University diplomas and transcripts.

What do I need to do to get my diploma or transcript notarized?

Complete and sign the Notary Service Request form and include it with your documents to be notarized. It is required that the original documents are present—an official transcript must be ordered or an original diploma presented or mailed to the Office of the Registrar. We cannot notarize scanned or printed copies of your documents. The Office of the Registrar will make a certified copy of the diploma to send with the notary certificate to the address you provide and the original returned to you. The official transcript will remain sealed and sent with the notary certificate to the address you provide. For original diplomas and transcripts, processing takes about one business day and is free of charge.

What if I don’t have my original diploma to have you notarize?

If you do not have access to your original diploma, a duplicate diploma may be ordered for a $40 fee. We cannot notarize scanned copies of a diploma. If ordering a duplicate diploma, please allow 2–3 weeks for processing.

How long does the notarization process take?

Processing takes about one business day for original documents. If ordering a duplicate diploma, please allow 2–3 business days for processing. All documents returned via mail are sent through USPS First Class mail.

What happens after the Office of the Registrar notarizes my diploma or transcript?

To obtain an Apostille, the Oregon Secretary of State will also require you to complete a request form found here: http://sos.oregon.gov/business/Documents/notary-forms/notary-request-for-authentication.pdf.

The Oregon Secretary of State asks for payment as well as a self-addressed stamped envelope for the return of your documents.

Will you forward my documents to the Oregon Secretary of State?

The Office of the Registrar will only send the notarized documents to the Secretary of State and will not coordinate payment or return for you. To ensure the timely and safe return of your documents from the Oregon Secretary of State is highly recommended that you request your diploma and transcripts be returned directly to you from our office. You can then give them to the Oregon Secretary of State with your payment and the request form in one package.

Will you notarize other documents?

To keep this service free of charge our notary only notarizes documents generated by the Office of the Registrar.

If you have special verification needs you may submit a Verification of Enrollment request form to the Office of the Registrar. These special requests are subject to a $15 processing fee and require 3 business days to process.

Degree information is also reported to the National Student Clearinghouse and individuals or organizations wishing to verify your degree may do so through the NSC for a small fee. You may also order an official transcript to provide as proof of degrees earned.

Transfer Course Equivalencies

For information on courses from Oregon Colleges and Universities that are accepted in transfer to OSU, see Oregon colleges and universities course equivalencies page. You can also view equivalencies for schools outside of Oregon.

Baccalaureate Core Course Equivalencies

For information on courses from Oregon Community Colleges that transfer to OSU as baccalaureate core credit (courses that meet general education requirements) see baccalaureate core course equivalencies page.

Reverse Transfer

Oregon State University has partnered with Linn-Benton Community College to help identify and award associate degrees to students who have completed the degree requirements but may be unaware of this achievement.

At the conclusion of week six of each term, our office will send OSU transcripts for qualifying degree partnership program students to Linn-Benton. Linn-Benton will evaulate the course work to determine if requirements have been met for an associate degree at LBCC. LBCC will contact eligible students.

The transfer of records from OSU to LBCC will cease once a student has been awarded an associate degree from LBCC or applied for their baccalaureate degree from OSU.

We know our students work hard and we wish to see them justly awarded for the degrees they have earned.

If you have questions or concerns about this process, you may contact:

LBCC: Jane Tillman, tillmaj@linnbenton.edu or call 541-917-4912

  • Anything for profit.
  • Anything viewed as advertising, even for academic or university business, even if there is no fee.

Denied requestors are encouraged to use the postal service.
