Registration by class standing for the Summer 2021, Fall 2021 and Winter 2022 semesters is now open. Full-year registration allows students to register for an entire year’s worth of classes each March. OU has a knowledgeable staff ready to assist with questions related to registration, advising, financial services and other concerns. Students can keep moving toward their academic and professional goals by following these steps: 

Meet with an academic adviser

Students are encouraged to meet with their academic adviser virtually to ensure they are selecting the right classes to stay on track for graduation. Most students have an assigned adviser that they can directly reach out to via email.

Undergraduate students can log in to MySail and find their assigned academic adviser right on the home screen. Under the My Details section, click the blue Adviser link on the right-hand side. A box should pop up with the advising unit and/or adviser's name along with their contact information. Find information about academic advising at

Graduate students should contact their academic department for advising assistance.

Oakland has many need- and merit-based scholarships available to students. In addition, students who are facing a financial hardship related to an unforeseen or emergency situation are encouraged to apply for assistance from the donor-funded Student Emergency Relief Fund.  

The university also offers a payment plan that allows students to pay tuition in installments. Learn more about the payment plan at
