Step-by-Step Enrollment

Preparation for Enrollment

  1. KNOW WHEN TO ENROLL. Check out your Enrollment Window and Registration Status on oZONE under your Academics tab. Mark your calendar with the day and time that your enrollment window opens.
  2. CHECK FOR HOLDS. Holds may keep you from enrollng during your Enrollment Window or impact other processes. You can check for holds by viewing the Enrollment Windown and Registration Status on oZONEreferenced in step one.
  3. PREPARE FOR YOUR ADVISEMENT. 
    • Visit advisement.ou.edu and click on your college to find information about making your advisement appointment.        
    • Use Degree Navigator to keep up with degree requirements and track your progress toward graduation.   
    • Review semester-by-semester plans for your degree here.
    • View course descriptions by clicking on the course CRN (Course Reference Number) when you are in the oZONE system searching courses (see below for more information on searching for courses).
    • Search for classes for the Summer and Fall 2012 semesters. Find tutorials about searching for classes at the Ozone student training page or on OU's YouTube page by clicking here.   
    • Use these writeable pdfs to make trial schedules. Use the interactive fields to type in the course information found when searching classes on Ozone. Be sure to record the Course Reference Numbers (CRNs) for each course! Then tab down and use the weekly schedule to type in your courses and block out the times you are in class for a quick view of your average week. You may want to create several trial schedules and save them as trial schedule 1, trial schedule 2, etc… to use for later comparison and discussion with your academic advisor.
  4. BE ADVISED. Meet with your advisor to make a plan. If any course overrides or special permissions are required for any of your courses, be sure to clarify with your advisor how to obtain these.
  5. PLAN YOUR SCHEDULE. Use your Advising Worksheet provided by your academic advisor, the Trial Schedule worksheets you completed and discussed with your advisor, and the Look Up Classes link found under the Academics tab on oZONE to find the courses you need and plan your schedule.
  6. REGISTER FOR CLASSES. Click on the Enroll and Add/Drop link under the Academics tab on oZONE. Choose the term you'd like to register for and type the CRNs which you recorded on your Trial Schedule worksheets into the boxes at the bottom of the page to enroll. Click Submit Changes and you should see a screen appear with your course schedule. If you have a registration error, it will be listed on this screen as well. Think 15! Remember enrollment in less than 15 hours each semester may require additional semesters to complete your degree.
  7. CHECK YOUR OU E-MAIL FOLLOWING ENROLLMENT. Make sure you receive an e-mail confirmation from Enrollment Services the next day following each registration transaction. If you do not receive an e-mail, your transation was not processed. Contact Enrollment Services immediately for assistance at (405) 325-3572. Please keep all e-mails regarding registration until you receive your Bursar's statement at the beginning of the semester.
