Spring Orientation and Enrollment

Online orientation and enrollment for students entering in the spring semester begins with completing your New Student Success Modules and Math Placement Exam prior to your registered enrollment date. Then, on your orientation dates, you will attend an online orientation program, learn about campus resources, and meet your advisor to discuss majors and course options prior to enrolling in classes.

Fall Orientation and Enrollment

Orientation and enrollment programs for students entering OSU in the summer or fall are being created now and options will be announced soon. On your orientation date, you will attend an online orientation program, learn about campus resources, and meet your advisor to discuss majors and course options prior to enrolling in classes.

 

Can Family Members or Guests Participate in Orientation?

While we hope they will join you, family participation is optional. Family members will have access to the parent materials and are invited to join you in learning about campus resources. We strongly encourage a family member to participate in orientation and enrollment sessions designed for them if possible so that you have someone else to gather important information.


Next Steps

Things to do before, during and after orientation and enrollment.
See our checklist to make sure you've accomplished all the tasks you need for a smooth transition to OSU.

Financial Planning Coaches

Meet with a coach for individual assistance.
We know college is an investment, we want you to be financially well. During an overnight orientation, there is optional time to meet with a coach to look at your specific scholarships, costs and budgeting options to make sure you're on the right track.

Orientation Leaders

Your guides during orientation.
As members of our Connection Crew, the orientation leaders will welcome you and your family and serve as mentors during your orientation experience. They will help you learn all you need to know about OSU and can answer any and all your questions related to life as an OSU Cowboy.
