OSU provides a number of tools to serve our students. Register for classes, update your address, order transcripts, and more using your Online Services.
Don't get caught unawares; know the university dates and deadlines by keeping an eye on the academic calendar.
Stay in touch with instructors, advisors, and others via your ONID email account. Also, you may access many of your services using your ONID login credentials.
Wouldn't it be great if all of these tools were available in one place? Check out the OSU portal. From this one place you can access all your university services, receive important announcements, and stay connected with your campus activities.
Are you a veteran? If so you should check out the numerous services that OSU provides to our veteran students.
You may login to Online Services for the first time using your student identification number and GAP (general access PIN). The GAP is initially your date of birth (mmddyy). Upon your initial login you will be prompted to change your GAP to another six digit number known only to you. Do not share this number with anyone. You will also be directed to establish a question and answer to be used to reset your GAP should you forget it.
The “Online Services” is the medium by which you will conduct much of your business with the university. From the student online services you may add/drop/withdraw courses, update your current mailing address, view unofficial transcripts, order official transcripts, view & pay your bill, and review financial aid information. For a detailed tour of Online Services view the Online Services Login & Menu Tour video tutorial.
First, login to Online Services using your OSU ID# and GAP (General Access PIN). The first time you enter this system your GAP is your date of birth (mmddyy). You must change your GAP; it cannot remain your d.o.b. Change your GAP to a secure six digit number (do not share this number with anyone). The system will prompt you to create a question and answer that you can use to reset your GAP, should you forget it.
Second, wait approximately 5-10 minutes and then continue to the ONID page and choose Sign Up for ONID. Here you will use your OSU ID# and the GAP you just established to create your ONID username and password. Once your ONID username and password is established you will use these credentials to login to all your OSU network services, including the online services. ONID is the network account provided to OSU students and staff.
Admitted students are eligible for an ONID account, but the account only remains active if the student enrolls for their term of admission. Registered students, employees, faculty, emeriti, COCC dual enrolled students, and OSU Associates (to learn more about this status visit the visit the ID Center website) are all eligible for an ONID account as long as their association with the university remains active.
Open the ONID page, choose LOGIN to ONID and enter your ONID username and password when prompted.

Need to make plans for a future term for which the academic calendar is not yet published? The Oregon University System 5-year calendar defines the beginning and ending dates of each term for the next five years.
The academic calendar provides information about important dates and deadlines for each term. This includes, amongst other things, information about the last day to add a class, drop a class, and more. Be sure to refer to this calendar regularly throughout the term.
