OSU offers non-traditional courses whose learning experiences do not follow the regular 11-week term.

View deadlines for non-traditional courses.

  • Term Extension: 2-week pre-term courses attached to a regular 11-week term, but occur between regular term dates
  • Term 5A - 1st 5 Weeks: Courses taught only in the 1st 5 weeks of the regular term
  • Term 5B - 2nd 5 Weeks: Courses taught only in the 2nd 5 weeks of the regular term
  • Super Term: Courses spanning a regular term length, plus the approved extension for that term (12 weeks)

A submission time of 11:55pm applies to all registration deadlines, with the exception of Change of Grading Basis which is 5pm.

OSU's 4-year calendar defines the start and end dates of each term for the next four years.
