You will be notified by mail of your acceptance to OSU-Cascades. After you receive this letter, please call 541-322-3100 to register for orientation. We generally offer two orientation sessions each term, with additional sessions during the summer months.
If you are a freshman (or a transfer student who has never taken math or writing), you must take a placement exam at COCC to assess your math and writing levels. For more information on this process, see COCC Placement Exams. Your placement exam should be taken prior to orientation.
During orientation, you will meet with your assigned faculty, peer, or professional advisor depending upon your academic program. You advisor will help you choose appropriate courses to meet your educational goals, and will also serve as an important resource to you as you navigate through the college system.
When you meet with your advisor, you will be given your OSU PIN number for registration into OSU classes. If you will be registering into COCC classes, be sure to also have your advisor clear an advising hold at COCC.
See Advising for additional information on the advising process at OSU-Cascades, as well as helpful links to forms, advising guides, and transfer credit information.
You are now ready to register for courses. This can be done immediately following Orientation where staff will be present to answer questions, or at your own pace at another time.
