Watch a video to learn how to enroll in courses
If you’ve never registered for courses at OSU before watch the Add A Course Video to get started.
You may use the Class Search feature of the student online services to find and register for courses. Login to the Online Services, choose the Registration menu, choose Add/Drop classes, scroll to the bottom of the page, and click the Class Search button. Here you can define the criteria for the course(s) you are looking for. Review the search results to determine what course(s) you will enroll in. Once the course is identified select it. Add it to your worksheet if you intend to continue searching for more courses. Once you have selected all of the courses you wish to enroll in click Register. The screen will reload and display the courses you were successfully enrolled in. If you were not enrolled in a course there will be an error message that explains why you were not enrolled in the course. Note: the Class Search feature cannot be used if you have received an override to enroll in a closed class.
Number of Registration Attempts Allowed
During the Registration process it can be tempting to use Auto Refresh features of your web browser or other automated processes such as bots to attempt to register for classes. However, registration attempts are limited, after which your account is locked and all registration activity including Add, Drops, Withdraws and Credit changes will need to be made in person at the Office of the Registrar.
Now is the time to use the plan you and yoru advisor developed using the Planner feature in your MyDegrees. Login to the Online Services and choose the MyDegrees option from the Student Records menu. Now choose the Planner tab. Use the drop down box to choose the plan that you intend to build your registration from. Load that plan. Note, you'll need to identify the CRN's of the course sections you intend to enroll in. This can be accomplished by clicking on the still needed course in your degree checklist in the left hand column, this will load information about that course including when it is scheduled, the CRN, and the available seats in the course. You can also search for the courses in the course schedule to identify the sections you intend to register for.
Once the plan is loaded, open another browser window, log back into your student online services, enter the Registration menu, choose Add/Drop classes, and scroll to the bottom of the page. Here you may enter the CRN’s of the courses you wish to enroll in and click the submit button or you can use the class search feature to find the CRN's of the courses on your plan. The screen will reload and display the courses you were successfully enrolled in. If you were not enrolled in a course there will be an error message that explains why you were not enrolled in the course.
If you receive an electronic override from a department to allow you to enroll in a course from which you would otherwise be restricted you must return to your Online Services to enroll in the course. You will not be enrolled by the department providing the override. If you receive an override to enroll in a closed course you must enter the CRN of the course in the boxes on the add/drop pages and submit the registration change from there. If you attempt to use the Class Search feature you will receive the error message “course does not exist”.
