In this extraordinary time around our nation and world, we know you may be experiencing a lot of emotions and want you to feel supported during this time. The Cowboy family is more important than ever and we will get through this together.

Let's do this, Cowboys.

The University made the difficult decision for classes to be held online through the end of the spring semester. We realize that this decision may cause disappointment and stress, but we believe that it is the best approach to ensure the health and safety of students, staff and faculty. We can support one another by following CDC guidelines, practicing social distancing and doing our best to #FlattenTheCurve.
Most in-person services on campus will be greatly reduced in partnership with the City of Stillwater, which is also reducing services such as closing restaurants (take out only), gyms and other public facilities. We will provide many online services for you while you are away from campus. 
We are committed to supporting you during this time academically, socially, and in all aspects of your wellness. Let’s take care of each other. And as the Cowboy Code says, we end the day knowing we gave it everything we had.

Resources to help you succeed in your classes

OSU faculty have worked diligently to move their course materials online. This is more natural for some classes than others, but ALL classes (including labs) have moved online. We encourage you to contact your faculty directly with any questions you have about their materials, but also know they are figuring this out at the same time you are. Below are resources intended to help you in this transition.

Resources for Learning Online

We strongly encourage you to set up notifications by text message, especially for “announcements.” This is the easiest way for your instructors to get the most important information to you. Your instructors will not see the cell number you provide to Canvas.

LASSO Services and Tutoring

We encourage you to continue to seek out tutoring and success coaching resources. You will continue to schedule all appointments through STAR and all scheduled sessions will occur through Zoom. Once you’ve scheduled an appointment, you will receive an email that details instructions to download and use Zoom.  These instructions are also available on the LASSO website. Appointment reminder emails will also include this information, along with the weblink to access your tutor’s Zoom room. Other tutoring options may also still be available, check with your individual department or college for details. 

OSU Writing Center

Need writing support or tutoring? The OSU Writing Center will offer online sessions to assist with your courses. You can make an appointment online and learn more at their website. 

Math Learning Success Center

The MLSC will offer online tutoring through Discord during our normal operating hours. Discord is an established chatting platform where tutors and students can interact through voice communication, text messages, and picture sharing. Join here and create an account.

Supplemental Instruction (SI)

Supplemental instruction provides an extra opportunity for you to work with other students and a course/section facilitator to learn key concepts that is available for some courses. If you wish to utilize supplemental instruction during this time you can access your SI leaders through NEW course specific SI Canvas Communities. SI Leaders will hold regularly scheduled SI sessions and office hours virtually using the Canvas “Conferencing” tool. Virtual SI will officially begin on March 23, and you can “self-enroll” in your courses’ SI Canvas Community by using the link(s) provided by your course instructor. If you have any questions or problems arise please call LASSO at 405-744-3309 or email at lasso@okstate.edu.

Information Technology Resources

OSU's Department of Information Technology has compiled a helpful list of resources and links for students. Bookmark this page for important links like O-Key, Canvas and more.

Internet Access

OSU is an eduroam WiFi campus so that means, students can use their okey login on any Eduroam campus and they will have access to wifi. Many communities are offering free or reduced-price resources. Check with your local services for possibilities. Some public libraries are providing free wi-fi from outside the building. Some cell phone providers are offering free or reduced-price data plans. Using your phone as a hot-spot might help. The FCC is working with all the telecom companies to extend data limits for everyone for now. 

IT Virtual Labs Available

Staffed lab locations on campus will be closed until classes on campus resume. But OSU offers Virtual Labs that allow you to access software you may not have on your personal computer or device. OSU's Virtual Labs have the same software as the IT run computer labs on campus. You can connect to the Virtual Labs from a browser or by installing an application to your computer.

Tips for Technology Success

We've compiled a list of helpful tips to assist in transitioning your coursework online and ensuring you're set up properly. From checking email and configuring computer equipment to accessing software and apps, these tools will help you access the information you need to succeed.
