Let's do this, Cowboys.

When faced with a challenge, Cowboys come together. We can support one another by following CDC guidelines, practicing social distancing and doing our best to #FlattenTheCurve.
We are committed to supporting you 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

Like health and safety, your academic success is a top priority for OSU faculty and staff. We have resources available to help you succeed in class — whether that’s in-person or online. We encourage you to use these resources and to contact faculty directly with any questions you have about their online materials.

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. Please visit the LASSO website for more information and instructions. Once you sign up, you will recieve an appointment reminder email with your specific tutoring session information. Other tutoring options may also still be available; please 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 normal operating hours … Discord is an established chatting platform where tutors and students can interact through voice communication, text messages and picture sharing.

Supplemental Instruction (SI)

Supplemental instruction allows you to work with other students and a course/section facilitator to learn key concepts for some courses. You can access your SI leaders through new course specific SI Canvas Communities. For more information, contact LASSO at 405-744-3309 or

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. That means students can use their O-Key login on any Eduroam campus to access Wi-Fi. For off-campus students, many communities are offering free or reduced-price resources. Check with your local service providers for options. Some public libraries are providing free Wi-Fi from outside the building, and some cell phone providers are offering free or reduced-price data plans.

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.

Academic Advising

Your academic advisor is available virtually to support and assist you. To “meet” with your advisor, schedule your appointment through the format that you usually use. Your advisor is a resource and will be available for enrollment, academic, or personal concerns that you may have.
