Registration FAQs

I'm getting an error when I try to register for a class.  What do I do?  There are various reasons you might get a registration error.  Maybe you don't have the prerequisite for the class, maybe the class is full, maybe the class is only open to students in certain majors, maybe you have a hold on your account. This chart of common registration errors tells you what the error means and what you shoudl do about it. 

I have a hold on my account.  What do I do? There are many different types of holds - some of them prevent registration, and others do not.  You can view your holds in MyOregonState, and some will also appear in MyDegrees.  This chart of hold types will help you determine what hold you have, and how you can clear it.

I can't add an extra class to my schedule.  Is it still Phase I of registration?  If so, you can add a maximum of 16 credits to your schedule.  If you want 17+ credits, you have to wait until your Phase II registration time to add the extra class(es). You can view your registration date and times in MyOregonstate. 

 


Grading FAQs

What is S/U Grading? S/U grading is similar to pass/fail grading.  S/U grades carry no grade points and aren't calculated in the GPA.

S grade | Satisfactory | Awarded for C- or higher | Credit is earned for the class

U grade | Unsatisfactory | Awarded for D+ or lower | No credit is earned for the class

 

What are the rules on S/U Grading?  One general rule is that you can S/U a maximum of 36 credits toward your degree.  There are some rules about S/U grades that are specific to your major: 
Forestry: you cannot S/U any major requirements.  It's okay to S/U a Bacc Core or elective course (unless it's also fulfilling a major requirement).
Forest Engr: you cannot S/U any major requirements.  It's okay to S/U a Bacc Core or elective course (unless it's also fulfilling a major requirement).
Forest-Civil Engr: you cannot S/U any major requirements.  It's okay to S/U a Bacc Core or elective course (unless it's also fulfilling a major requirement).
Natural Resources: you are allowed a maximum of two S grades in your major.  
Renewable Materials: you cannot S/U any major requirements.  It's okay to S/U a Bacc Core or elective course (unless it's also fulfilling a major requirement).
TRAL: you cannot S/U any major requirements.  It's okay to S/U a Bacc Core or elective course (unless it's also fulfilling a major requirement).

How do I S/U?  You have until Friday of week 7 to change your grading to S/U. You do that by completing a "Change of Grading Basis" form in MyOregonstate.  Here are the instructions
