Welcome new transfer student!

Your success begins with connections.
Here at OSU, we build Cowboys. We are excited to welcome you into the Cowboy family and help you transition to OSU as a transfer student. We know you've already had a college experience, but all new students are required to attend orientation and enrollment so that you know how to navigate OSU and have all the resources you need. Learn more about your program options, resources and next steps below.

Transfer Program Details

New transfer students enroll based on the number of credit hours you've completed, so that you register alongside current OSU students with the same number of hours. If you will begin classes at OSU in the spring, you will need to attend a fall orientation program. If you plan to begin OSU classes in the fall, you will need to attend a spring or summer orientation and enrollment session. 

Transfer Next Steps

Things to do before orientation and enrollment
Before you can register for orientation and enrollment, you must:
  1. Set-up your O-Key account. This account also establishes your OSU email account. Visit and follow the activation steps.

  2. Check your OSU email. We use this email as your primary point of contact for scholarships and financial aid, orientation and other campus departments.

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, move-in and during 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.

Should family members or guests attend orientation?

We hope they will! Attendance for family members is optional. However, more than 75% of family members attend orientation and enrollment and we believe they are joining the Cowboy family too. We strongly encourage a family member to attend if possible so that you have someone else to gather important information. Cost for family members or guests is $20 (charged for up to three or $60). This fee covers parking, meal(s) and materials during the program, and must be paid in advance via the application portal.
