Congratulations on getting admitted to Oregon State! This page outlines helpful information for first-time, newly admitted students taking classes online through Oregon State Ecampus. Whether you are starting your journey to degree completion, or are simply interested in individual online courses, here are some important things to do before classes start!
Set up your OSU Network Identification (ONID account)
Your ONID account gives you an Oregon State email address and is also required for logging into your online Blackboard course. It is also required when you register for your classes online.
Complete the Ecampus online orientation
Note: this online orientation is currently intended for undergraduate degree-seeking students. If you are a graduate, or non-degree student, i.e, taking a class, this is not required.
Review our "Getting Started" guide
Hint: you might want to print out this Getting Started Guide. It includes other great information, such understanding tuition and fees and the advanced tuition deposit (ATD); how to obtain course materials from a distance; and resources for starting and succeeding in your online class. Similarly, you can access this information via the links on the side navigation of this page.
Please call us if you need help or clarification on anything regarding your new student status.
