Academic Requirements for New Students


Wondering about how your course schedule will be created? You've come to the right place!

All new students are required to complete the New Student Information Sheet in myOswego. Students will be pre-registered for a full course load prior to coming to Orientation. A team of experienced advisors will work to review all information and preferences submitted through the New Student Information Sheet and plan a schedule that best suits each student. All students will have the ability to adjust their schedule at Orientation. If you request a major change please do not fill out the New Student Information sheet until you have received confirmation of your new major.

Please allow two business days after completing the info sheet in MyOswego for processing before trying to register for Orientation. 

You may be required to complete a Math Placement Exam at Orientation (if needed, based on your major). The exam will be taken on day one of Orientation in the morning. If your major is Undeclared, please contact if you are considering a major that requires a math course. 

There are many resources and programs for incoming new students. It is our ultimate goal to ensure your success at SUNY Oswego.
