Condensed Orientation and Enrollment

During this orientation experience, you'll receive information at a quicker pace. The condensed program is recommended for those very familiar with OSU, those who are sure of their major selection or those who typically have quick decision-making skills. The program includes advising and enrollment, time with peers and opportunities to learn more about the OSU community.  


This on-campus, one-day experience is from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. 



Virtual Orientation and Enrollment

This program option is limited to students who live more than 500 miles from Stillwater and cannot make the trip to campus, are in military training during on-campus program offerings, have financial hardships that prevent attendance or will be out of the country during the entirety of on-campus program options.  


This online, Zoom program focuses specifically on the enrollment process. Participants will be required to view pre-recorded sessions ahead of time.  



Modified Orientation and Enrollment

This half-day, on-campus program provides academic advising and enrollment while introducing you to campus and academic resources and connecting you with peers. Please plan to attend the entirety of the program.
