Registering Online

Registration tutorials on adding, dropping, and waitlisting courses are available on the Office of the Registrar’s website.

  1. Check Eligibility to Register to see if you are eligible to register.
  2. Obtain your Registration PIN number from your college advisor. (Not required for nondegree students.)
  3. Log in to MyOSU. Enter your ONID name and password and click Login.
  4. Obtain your registration times for phases 1 and 2: Click on the Student tab, and under Registration Tools select View Priority Registration Status and follow the directions or consult the Priority Registration schedules to find out when you may register.
  5. Use Registration Tools to register. Follow the online instructions to complete your registration.

Caution: Do not wait until the last minute to process registration changes. Although generally available 24 hours a day, if you wait until 10 pm or later on a Friday night, you may encounter “system unavailable” messages or busy signals due to many people trying to use the system at the same time.

Registration Confirmation

You may confirm your schedule and print a copy of your schedule by logging in to MyOSU, select the Student tab and under My Student Stuff, click on ‘My Class Schedule’.

IMPORTANT: Course offerings, course times and locations, and other important information related to courses may change. The Schedule of Classes is continually updated and should be referred to for the most accurate information.

Waitlisting

In Phase 2 of registration, waitlisting will be in effect but only for certain sections selected by the departments. Look at the Schedule of Classes. You will see that some sections have waitlisting numbers listed above the course description.

To get added to a waitlist:

  1. Type the CRN into the registration worksheet and click Submit.
  2. Use the action column to choose waitlist.
  3. Click Submit again to add yourself to the waitlist.
  4. Monitor your ONID email account.

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 of registration, the system will check for registration errors (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.

Waitlisting remains active through midnight Sunday at the beginning of the second week of classes. If you are still on the waitlist at this time, you are not registered in the course but if you wish to be, follow the Second Week Add Procedure.

Second Week Add Procedure

  1. Contact the department offering the course you want to add.
  2. If the department grants you permission, register for the course online.
  3. Type the CRN into the box below the courses for which you currently are registered, and hit the submit button.

Transfer Work

If you have transfer credits that you have not yet submitted to OSU, you need to submit official transcripts to the Admissions Office at least four weeks prior to registration opening. Transfer credits are included in your earned credits used in part to determine your priority registration time.
