Student Requirements

If you're a visiting student, you will need to obtain "non-degree admission" status before you can register for undergraduate or graduate classes. A "non-degree" student is an admissions classification for those individuals who are not fully admitted to OSU as degree-seeking students at the time they register for classes. A non-degree admission does not mean you are not seeking a degree, either at OSU or elsewhere. For deadlines and complete details on how to apply for non-degree admission, visit Non-Degree students on the OSU Admissions Office website.

Incoming freshmen and transfer students are required to attend START, OSU's summer advising and registration program. START is the first step in OSU's three-part student orientation program. More information can be found on the OSU START website.


How to Register

Your act of registering constitutes your commitment to attend Oregon State University. As a university student, you are both academically and financially responsible for all classes in which you register. Registration begins during Spring term and continues until the beginning of each session.
