Just a quick reminder that Summer registration starts April 13th. (see http://summer.oregonstate.edu/ for more info)
- We are about to enter an “open” phase of registration for summer. We have reserved HDFS based courses for you as an Ecampus student until April 30th when remaining seats in e-campus sections of classes are free for on campus students to grab, so please take advantage of this J YOU WILL NOT NEED A PIN for summer registration.
- If you are wondering what to take and are waiting (patiently for an advisor response or appointment, thank you for your patience), please refer to My Degrees to look at your degree checklist. It highlights what you are in, what you still need and captures credits… Do you need or want to take an HDFS core class eg: 311, 313, 314, 341, 360… Do you need something else in the support course area? Psychology 201, 202, SOC 204, WR 327 ? HDFS elective? HDFS 444, 447? Bac core? See this link for how to get to My Degrees: http://oregonstate.edu/registrar/mydegrees/
Hello Ecampus HDFS students!
We hope Spring term has started out strong for you (and that you’re starting to enjoy a little Spring weather wherever you are). Your 2014-15 Registration PINs will soon be available (around Week 5 of the term), and we require that you speak with us regarding your upcoming terms before we will release your PIN to you.
Please make an appointment with us (either phone or in person) to discuss your upcoming terms. If you are unable to speak with us you can work out a few terms in your My Degrees Planner, and then email us so that we can then go in and review the plan for you. Once we have reviewed your proposed plan we will then release your PIN to you.
To make an appointment to speak with either of us you can call 541 737-8900 and let them know you’re an Ecampus student needing to talk with Aaron or Josie.

Hello, Ecampus HDFS students!

Wishing you could do a study abroad experience? Not sure how to fit it into your schedule? Did you know that the College of Public Health and Human Sciences has a study abroad program offered in Taiwan? There is space for 10-12 undergraduates from the college to spend Fall Term, 2014 at Fu Jen University in Taipei. No language requirement for OSU students, although most take an elementary Chinese language class while in Taiwan. Two classes are taken with FJU students who speak English, and two courses are only OSU students. You get OSU credit for the courses (16-17 credits), and meet the Contemporary Global Issues Bacc Core requirement. Returning students report that their experience was life-changing!!! It would be difficult to find a more economical exchange, with program fees and other expenses (airfare, housing, food, etc.) only about $700 more than attending classes at OSU! No out-of-state tuition, and all financial aid can be applied to program costs.
Contact Dr. Leslie Richards, HDFS professor, for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org, 541-737-1071.

If you need to S/U or withdraw from a course for Winter 2014 you only have until this Friday, February 21. Please let us know if you have any questions!
Hello HDFS Ecampus students!
We hope you’re each surviving the weather in your part of the state or country! This is just a reminder that you’ll begin registering for your Spring term classes on Sunday, February 23. Please be sure and check your specific Spring term Registration time and date through your online services, and let us know if you have any questions!
On Friday, February 21, we will hold “Same Day Appointments” for our students. If you need to speak with one of us, please call the Academic Advising Office Friday morning (prior to 9:00 am) to set up the appointment for later in the day. You can call after 9:00 am, but keep in mind that if you call earlier in the morning your chances of getting a same day appointment are higher!

The Oregon State University Retirement Association (OSURA), composed of retired OSU faculty and staff, is offering scholarship support to OSU undergraduate students majoring in a subject that contributes to a career promoting healthy aging.
Currently enrolled undergraduate students who have completed at least one academic year at OSU with a cumulative GPA of 3.4 or higher, and have a minimum of one year of study yet to be completed towards their first bachelor’s (B.S./B.A.) degree are encouraged to apply. Completed applications are due no later than March 3.
Scholarship awards between $750 and $1,500 per student will be announced at the May 2014 Annual Meeting.
Please refer to OSURA’s website (http://oregonstate.edu/osura/osura-scholarship) for scholarship application information.
Students’ ONID email is indeed now delivered to Google Apps for OSU. Students now need to login to http://oregonstate.edu/google to access their ONID email and (should they so choose) reset their email forwarding. Students are not getting “new” email addresses as a result of this move, and they will still receive email sent to their @onid.orst.edu address. The email they send from Google Apps for OSU will use their @onid.oregonstate.edu address. The bottom line is that you do not have to change the way you contact students via email.
This change gives students all the benefits that Google Apps provide: a 30 GB mailbox, advanced tools and functionality, and anytime, anywhere access through Google’s mobile apps and web interface.
The OSU Computer Helpdesk will continue to support ONID email and they also support all of Google Apps for OSU. If you or the students you work with have questions, you may contact the Helpdesk at http://oregonstate.edu/is/tss/och.
Hey there, Ecampus!
Happy New Year and Winter term! We wanted to share the link to a blog that the Ecampus Student Success team has been working on and that includes lots of information about Ecampus, available courses, and more (http://blogs.oregonstate.edu/studentsuccess/). The site also features Zero to Success in 77 Days (for Online Learners) tips to help students prepare for Winter term.
Also, remember that you can request to talk with an Ecampus Student Success Counselor anytime by submitting an appointment request through the Ecampus Success Counseling form.
Both of these links have also been posted on our FB page!
Happy New Year!
Aaron & Josie
