Enrollment - Finding Classes





Browse CEAT online learning courses

CEAT Online Learning produces lectures for Engineering, Architecture, and Technology online courses. Rather than sitting in a classroom, online students can utilize Canvas, OSU's online learning portal, to watch lectures, turn in assignments, and communicate with classmates and professors.

Unsure of what course to take, go to our Online Courses page to read descriptions and semester offerings. After locating the course that will fit your schedule, 

Check the Transfer Guides.

Want to see how your previous college credits, including high school dual credits, will transfer to Oklahoma State University? Use Undergraduate Admission's Transfer Guides to find out!

The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education guides include lower division (1000 and 2000 level) courses earned at two-year institutions listed as "equal in content" to upper division (3000 and 4000 level) courses at OSU. These particular courses may fulfill the content requirement of the indicated equivalency. However, they will not transfer as upper-division hours and do not directly substitute for upper-division courses in an OSU degree plan. Related course waivers may be possible if approved by the OSU college offering the degree, provided the total number of waived credit hours does not exceed six. It may be necessary to take additional upper-division hours at OSU if such lower-division courses are taken at a two-year college.

If you have a question concerning a specific course equivalency, please email your question to and attach a copy of the course syllabus and/or course description.

The proctor form is used to verify that the testing center you are trying to take your exams at meets OSU's criteria for academic integrity. As long as you do not change testing sites, you will not need to fill out a proctor form for every exam. If you do change testing sites, please fill out a new proctor form and submit it

    • Email addresses cannot be personal emails (Yahoo, Gmail, AOL, etc.) but must reflect the university’s web domain. Email addresses are not sufficient as verification.
    • Does the proctor know the student? If so, how does proctor know this student? (co-workers, supervisor, friends, students, family, personal tutors, or anyone with a potential conflict of interest will NOT be approved).
    • Failure to identify such conflicts may result in the student receiving a charge for a violation of
  • Oklahoma State University’s academic integrity policy and a grade of “F!” for the course.

 Academic Integrity Values - Honesty, Fairness, Trust, Respect, Responsibility

“I will respect Oklahoma State University's commitment to academic integrity and uphold the values that preserve our academic community.”

Being a cowboy isn't in your clothes. It's in your character. It's the passion to do what's right even when it's hard. It's ending the day knowing you gave it everything you had. It's standing out by standing tall. It's integrity. And honor. And courage to see hope even when you're the only one who sees it. Are You A Cowboy?
