Welcome!Orientation and enrollment is your next step to join the Cowboy family. 

It is an exciting time, and we are committed to providing you with the best experience. During your orientation, you will meet with an academic advisor, learn about campus resources, and enroll in your classes. Attendance is required, and we have several orientation and enrollment options for your convenience.

Register for orientation and enrollment

Orientation Programs

Please select the type of program based on your application to Oklahoma State University. The cost to attend orientation is covered in your deposit. If you are a transfer student, your fee ($75) will be placed on your first bursar bill the semester you begin classes.


There are two on-campus orientation options for incoming freshman students. We also offer a tradition-filled experience called Camp Cowboy


If you were admitted as a transfer student, we have several program dates for you based on the number of credit hours you've earned (not including your current semester coursework). During your orientation, you'll meet with an advisor, enroll and learn about important OSU systems you'll need. 

Absentee Orientation

If you are not able to attend orientation because you live outside of a 12 hour radius from Stillwater, serve in the military, are out of the country during programs, have a financial hardship or emergency family situation, please contact our office so that we can help you get enrolled through an absentee process.


All new international students are required to attend an orientation and enrollment session just before the semester begins. These programs include important information on immigration, health services screenings, testing and enrollment in classes over three days.

New Student Success Modules

Your resource guide.
Our new student success modules are REQUIRED and provide in-depth resources to set you up for success at OSU before on-campus orientation, during move-in and for the first few weeks of class. Once you register for orientation and enrollment, you will unlock the modules. They are filled with information you need to become a successful student and will help you come to orientation and enrollment more prepared. These modules must be completed at least one week prior to your orientation date.

Math Placement Exam

Do I need to take this exam?
OSU requires the Math Placement Exam to assess your preparation for the first math course you plan to take. You should complete math placement at least 72 hours prior to your orientation program in order to enroll in math for your first semester. Math placement must be completed in a proctored environment for your score to count toward course placement in your first semester. There are both online and in-person proctor options.
