Conversion to Semesters
OSU converted its academic calendar from quarters to semesters in Summer 2012. This page was created at the time of conversion to help then-current students (who entered OSU under quarters and had to transition to semesters) understand how the conversion would affect their programs. This page is no longer relevant. Students should refer to this page for current information. Information about the semester programs and the transition plans for current students is available via the following links. One interesting twist is the "Maymester", a very short session during May. Questions and answers about the Maymester are available here.

Individualized transition plan: Each current student (except those who will be graduating by Sp '12) will receive an e-mail from the Advising Office to make an appointment where an individualized transition plan for that student will be created and agreed upon. Prior to the appointment, students will be required to complete this worksheet and bring the completed worksheet with them to the appointment. The worksheet represents the plan the student could have followed if OSU were not switching to semesters and will serve as the starting point for creating the transition plan for that student as OSU moves to semesters. The Advising Office is also organizing workshops where details of the transition are discussed in full detail. Two workshops were held during Spring '11 and more are planned starting in Au '11. The slides used during the last workshop are available here but students who have not yet attended one of the workshops should make every effort to attend the next workshop (in Au '11) to be sure they fully understand the transition process.
- CSE courses under semesters: One major activity in the conversion to the semester calendar has been the creation of syllabi for all the CSE semester courses. These syllabi have been constructed and are currently (late Spring 2011) in the process of being approved by the College of Engineering and the university:
