After you have been admitted to OSU-Cascades, you may register according to the OSU-Cascades instructions included with your letter of admission. If you have not been admitted, please visit Admissions online.
What is priority registration?
Students are assigned registration dates and times according to their student status and credits earned. The registration schedule is separated into two phases.
Phase I: Undergraduate students are eligible to enroll in a maximum of 16 credits and waitlisting is not available. You may enroll from your eligibility date until the end of Phase I. At the close of Phase I, registration is closed for a business day while the system is enabled for Phase II.
Phase II: You may waitlist courses that have waitlisting available and the maximum credits for undergraduates is raised to 19.
The priority registration schedule
Priority registration represents a range of dates and times during which students will be eligible to register depending on their status and credits earned.

Late Registration and Changes in Registration

Withdrawing from a Course
You may withdraw (W grade) from a class after the Drop Class deadline. Refer to the Academic Calendar for dates associated with the term you are interested in.
To petition to withdraw from a course after the deadline complete the Petition for Late Change of Registration.
Withdraw from the TeRM
Beginning with the first day of the term, you may withdraw from the university for the term anytime up until the Friday of week 10 by completing the withdrawal survey. This will not withdraw you from dual-admit courses at COCC. As long as you are otherwise in good standing, you are eligible to register at OSU-Cascades for the next term without reapplying to the University. If you intend to drop all of your OSU courses in a term you will step through the process to Withdraw from the University for that term.
Review the Withdraw Registrar Website to review all details of withdraw and withdraw from term.
Audit registration may be done during the registration period for the term. Audit registration permits a student to enroll in a course for no credit and no grade. The class instructor will determine course requirements for an audited class. Those who wish to audit should contact the Enrollment Services Office in Tykeson Hall, (541) 322-3100, for registration procedures.
Registration Cancellation/Withdrawal from the University
Your act of registering constitutes your commitment to attend OSU-Cascades.
As a university student, you are both academically and financially responsible for all classes in which you register.
If you wish to cancel this commitment and reduce or eliminate tuition charges for the term, you must officially cancel your registration or withdraw from the university for the term. Failure to pay tuition or to attend classes does not constitute official withdrawal. Students who simply stop attending classes are financially liable for all charges, and may also receive grades of U, N, or F depending on departmental policy.
Prior to the first day of the term you may cancel your registration through Student Online Services or by visiting the OSU-Cascades Enrollment Services Office in Tykeson Hall.
Other Information and Regulations
GAP (General Access PIN)
A GAP is a 6-digit access number initially assigned to each student by the Enrollment Services Office. Your initial GAP is your birth date (month, day, & year). For example, if your birth date is April 3, 1982, your GAP will be 040382. Your initial birth date GAP will expire upon your first entry into the information systems. You must then choose a new GAP, other than your birth date. You also have the option to enter some additional information about yourself to use as a prompt should you forget your GAP and need to obtain a new GAP. You may also contact the OSU-Cascades Enrollment Services Office, Tykeson Hall, (541) 322-3100, if you forget your GAP.
Only students seeking OSU degrees need PINs. Partner institution students do not need PINs. Registration PINs are provided by your adviser at the time of advising. Non-degree students are not required to have registration PINs.
Students with registration holds from any institution will not be permitted to register until holds are cleared.
Web registration will not permit you to schedule two classes that meet at the same time.
Maximum Credit Loads
Undergraduates may register up to 19 credits through Web registration. Additional credits may be added. Go to Tykeson Hall, OSU-Cascades Enrollment Services Office.
Enrollment in some classes is restricted by the following designations: class, major, college, level, or departmental approval. If you do not satisfy the course restrictions, Web registration will explain the reason you did not receive the course selected. If you need assistance, please contact the OSU-Cascades Enrollment Services Office in Tykeson Hall, (541) 322-3100.
All classes registered by Web are given the A-F grade option as appropriate. Any changes of the A-F option (to S/U) are done in person in the Enrollment Services Office after completing the appropriate forms. The deadline for these changes is the end of the 7th week of classes at 5:00 p.m.
Closed or Cancelled Courses
If you register on the Web, classes that are closed or cancelled will be noted in the "Look-Up Classes to Add" results. We encourage you to have a few alternate classes or sections in mind so that you can complete your registration; or you may try Web registration again at a later time (before the term) to add the closed class.
Open Classes, Open Sections
Available classes are evident when using the "Look-Up Classes to Add" feature of Web registration.
Variable Credit Courses
If a course is taught for variable credits, for example 1-16 credits, Web registration will prompt you to enter the correct number of credits for which you wish to enroll. If you need to change that number later, you may do so by Web.
Lectures/Labs/Recitations (Multi-Part Courses)
If a class is "linked" to a noncredit lab or recitation, you must register for all parts of the class. Web registration will not permit you to register for one part without the other. Likewise, you may not drop one part of a "linked" class; if you do so, the other part will be dropped automatically. If you want to make a change of one part to a multi-part class, you should drop that part and add the new part at the same time before processing your requested changes. Be sure to process the request after specifying the drop and the add.
135 or more
Some classes are designated with the following student levels:
1 = Undergraduate students
2 = Graduate students
3 = Post-Baccalaureate students
4 = Non-Degree/Post-Baccalaureate Credential students
5 = Professional students
Major and Minor Changes or Declarations
To change or declare a major or minor, students must complete a Major/Minor Change Form. These forms are available at advising offices in the OSU-Cascades Enrollment Services Office in Tykeson Hall. It is essential for students to keep their major and minor declarations up-to-date with the university.
