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.
Visit with an advisor about course selection.
Prior to undergraduate enrollment, an appointment with an advisor is necessary. For more information on undergraduate enrollment visit the Spears School Student Services website.
New graduate students who have not yet submitted a plan of study must seek advisement with an advisor. Advisor information for each program is below.
