Prerequisite Enforcement

Enforcement of prerequisites is a powerful tool for managing your courses and setting up students to succeed in a course. Learn about how to enforce prerequisites for your course.

Priority Registration

Registration occurs in two phases. Students are given access to each phase of registration in batches according to their student status and earned credit hours. A general overview of the priority registration schedule is available on this website. Detailed information about your date and time for registration is available via MyOSU: click on Student tab and under Registration Tools select View Registration Priority Status.

Restriction Overrides

Courses may be restricted in many ways; prerequisites, corequisites, majors/minors/options, college, class standing and others. Restrictions are displayed in the class schedule. The ability to make exceptions to these restrictions lies with the department offering the course. Instructions for providing exceptions is provided in this section.

Tuition & Fee Payment

Students enrolled in courses beyond the end of the add/drop period are responsible for at least a portion of the applicable tuition and fees.


Departments can choose to use electronic waitlisting on course sections. Review the provided information to learn more about how this tool can be used to manage enrollment in courses.
