Below is important information regarding ENSC course registration.

  • Please note that you will need an override in order to register for thesis credits, ENSC 503 or ENSC 603, reading and conference credits, ENSC 505 or ENSC 605, project credits, ENSC 506, and/or internship credits, ENSC 510.
    • When planning to register for one or more of these ENSC graduate courses, please send an email to with the course information (course number, CRN and term), your name, your OSU ID number, and the name of your major professor. Once an override has been issued, you will then be sent an email informing you that you are now able to register. 
  • ENSC 508 is no longer required and the website has been updated. You are welcome to attend the joint campus conference and we will share information as soon as we receive it, but it is no longer required to take the credit. With many Ecampus students, it’s not feasible. Please let us know if you have any questions regarding this change.

When or if you have completed the CITI Responsible Conduct for Research certificate to fulfill the ethics requirement, please send a copy of the certificate to (unless you’ve taken GRAD 520 or another ethics course).

If you will not be registering for classes during Fall, Winter or Spring terms, you will need to complete a Leave of Absence form, approved and signed by your major professor and the program director, and submitted to the Graduate School for approval. This will enable you to continue to be a student in good standing. Below is the Graduate School’s Leave of Absence website that includes a link for the form.

You can also find the Oregon State University Academic Calendar that lists important term dates at the link below. It is recommended that you review the dates on the webpage.
