AU23 Enrollment Guidelines

Be enrolled for AU23 by August 14


Please follow the AU23 Enrollment Guide (PDF) to determine your correct enrollment level for the Fall. Students are responsible for meeting university deadlines for enrollment (see Add / Drop deadlines below).

We are asking that all students funded by a GRA or Fellowship be properly enrolled for his/her funding type by end of the day on Monday, August 14. If you cannot enroll by this date, inform Mark Cooper(.73) & Mei Wang(.235) and explain your situation.

All students may make online changes to their schedules through the first Friday of AU23, 8/25. See also the semester add / drop dates below.



Misc. information

Need permission to enroll in a course?

If you are unable to enroll in a course due to prerequisite issues, please complete the Add / Drop graduate course form. 


Help! There’s a hold on my account!

Did you click through the Financial Responsibility Statement (FRS) to release the hold?

The link for this will be on the right side of your Student Center home page, under either the “Holds” or the “To Do” section. View instructions (pdf)

If the FRS is not the issue, check the "To Do" section of your Student Center account. If this doesn't address the issue, please email Mark Cooper(.73) and include your OSU BuckID number.
