Special enrollment day set for Saturday
OSU-Tulsa will host a special Saturday Enrollment Day on Jan. 7 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Advising, enrollment and financial aid counselors will help current and prospective students finish admission, enroll for classes and verify financial aid.
“Our Saturday hours provide students with the opportunity to take care of enrollment related items before the beginning of the semester,” said Susan Tolbart, director of recruitment and student development at OSU-Tulsa. “Things can be pretty hectic during the week with work and family commitments as well as trying to take care of things for the start of the semester. The special enrollment day provides a more relaxed environment to register for classes, check on your financial aid or buy books.”
In addition to the special Saturday Enrollment Day, students can also visit OSU-Tulsa advising and enrollment counselors Jan. 3-5 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Jan. 6 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Spring classes start Jan. 9 at OSU-Tulsa.
An Undergraduate New Student Orientation session is being held during the Saturday event at 10:30 a.m. in North Hall 150. To attend, RSVP online or to firstname.lastname@example.org. Graduate Student Orientation will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Main Hall Commons.
OSU-Tulsa’s Bookstore will also be open Jan. 7 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for students who wish to purchase books and other supplies.
Continuing students may enroll online through the Student Information System (SIS). The SIS System is available Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to midnight; Saturday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday 7 a.m. to midnight.
