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.
