Detailed Enrollment Process

Failure to follow these steps or to complete them in the proper order will cause delays in enrollment.

Enrollment for business distance learning courses must be completed through SIS using your O-Key login and password. If an O-Key account is not already active, visit the O-Key website.

To ensure a spot in a course, it is encouraged for students to enroll as soon as courses become available.

Admittance to Oklahoma State University is required to enroll. If not already admitted, graduates visit the Graduate College and undergraduates may visit the Admissions Office.

Per OSU policy, students who are not enrolled in at least one course before the first day of classes for a given semester but who later enroll for that semester will be charged a $50 late fee by OSU.

Students considering taking more than nine hours in the fall or spring – or more than six in the summer – are strongly encouraged to consult with an advisor.

Prior to undergraduate enrollment, an appointment with an advisor is necessary. For more information on undergraduate enrollment visit the Spears School Student Services website.

Enrollment Holds

Any holds, such as Bursar Office or Academic Advising holds, will prevent enrollment. To check for holds:

  • Log in to SIS.
  • Select “Holds” from the Student Records drop-down menu.

Course Offerings

Course offerings, course descriptions, text book requirements and other information, can be located at the OCampus website. The OSU Stillwater bookstore and the Tulsa bookstore will carry a small inventory or books may be purchased from any outside book vendor (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Ecampus, iChapters, etc.).

Forms Required Before Enrollment

Proctor Agreement Form

Review the course syllabus located on the online classroom portal Desire2Learn or previous semester syllabi for graduate and undergraduate to determine if a proctor is required for exams. If a proctor is required, students will need to complete the top portion of the Distance Learning Proctor Agreement Form and have the proctor complete the proctor portion of the agreement form and fax it to (866) 865-0760 within the first week of class. Prior to proctor selection, Proctor Policies should be reviewed by both student and proctor. All proctors are to be approved through the Distance Learning office. Allow 24 to 48 hours for your request to be processed.

This form must be submitted every semester, however, if a proctor changes during the semester, notify our office and submit an updated form immediately.

If exams are to be taken exams at Wes Watkins Center or OSU Tulsa, it is not necessary to provide a proctor form. It is necessary to notify the Distance Learning office of the location.

Student Information Form

Submit the online Student Information Form

This form is for Distance Learning information only. It will not be issued to other departments or organization. This form is required for mailing course materials, preferred email address, business address, phone and proctor information. A student’s OSU email address is the primary mode of university communication however, updated student information is necessary in order to service each student accurately.

Students must submit this form at the beginning of every semester. If information changes during the semester, notify the distance learning office.
