Having Problems Registering?

First, check your eligibility to register. You may also be experiencing problems with one of the following:


In web registration, you will be asked to enter your General Access PIN (GAP). Your initial GAP is your 6-digit birthdate (mmddyy). This initial GAP is set to expire upon your first entry into the information systems. At that time, you must specify a new GAP number, other than your birthdate. You also have the option to enter some confidential information about yourself as a prompt should you forget your GAP and need to obtain a new one.

Once your GAP is established go to ONID, choose "Sign Up for ONID", and follow the directions to create your ONID account using the GAP# you just established. You will now use your ONID username and password to login to MyOSU from now on.

Should you forget your GAP, enter your student ID# and click on the "Forgot GAP?" button. You will be asked the security question you established. If you answer the question correctly you will be able to reset your GAP number. If this fails please contact the Registrar's Office, 541-737-4331, 102 Kerr Administration Building.

Time Conflicts

Web registration will not permit you to register/waitlist two classes that meet at the same time. If, however, you and your instructors agree that it is appropriate to schedule two time-conflicting classes, register for the first course by web. Obtain approval from both instructors involved and then the departmental office personnel will enter an override. Once this is done you will need to log back into MyOSU and register for the second course.

Special Approval

Some classes require consent (approval) of the department. "Departmental approval" will appear in the Schedule of Classes for classes needing this approval. Examples are independent study, projects, research, thesis, reading and conference, music audition, and studio art courses. See the offering department for approval. When you have approval, the department will "clear" you to proceed with web registration; you must then register for this class to your schedule on your own.
