Spears School of Business at Oklahoma State University

Detailed Enrollment Process

Failure to follow these steps or to complete them in the proper order will cause delays in enrollment.

Enrollment for business online learning courses must be completed through Banner Self Service.

To ensure a spot in a course, it is encouraged for students to enroll as soon as courses become available.

Admittance to Oklahoma State University is required to enroll. If not already admitted, graduates visit the Graduate College and undergraduates may visit the Admissions Office.

Per OSU policy, students who are not enrolled in at least one course before the first day of classes for a given semester but who later enroll for that semester will be charged a $50 late fee by OSU.

Students considering taking more than nine hours in the fall or spring – or more than six in the summer – are strongly encouraged to consult with an advisor.

Course Offerings

Forms Required Before Enrollment

Proctor Agreement Form

Review the course syllabus located on the online classroom portal Brightspace to determine if a proctor is required for exams. If a proctor is required, each semester, students will need to select a proctor from the pre-approved list for each course(s). If unable to find a proctor from the pre-approved list, then the Proctor Agreement Form will need to be filled out and submitted here. All proctors are approved through the Online Learning office. Allow 24 to 48 hours for your request to be processed.

A proctor can be changed during the semester, however changing less than 4 days prior to the start date of the exam, the Online Learning Office will need to be notified immediately or the exam will not be sent to the proctor.

If exams are to be taken with the instructor (if allowed), it is still necessary to edit each course here and check the box “Instructor Can Admin Test” then save.

Student Information Form

Submit the online Student Information Form

This form is for Online Learning information only. It will not be issued to other departments or organization. This form is required for mailing course materials, preferred email address, business address, phone and proctor information. A student’s OSU email address is the primary mode of university communication however, updated student information is necessary in order to service each student accurately.

Students must submit this form at the beginning of every semester. If information changes during the semester, notify the online learning office.
