To Do Checklist & Forms
This checklist tells you everything you need to do and when. Make sure not to miss any deadlines as it may prevent you from successfully registering for classes.
Below is the Spring 2017 checklist; please note these forms cannot be accessed until you have received and activated your MyOxy account and email address, which will be mailed to you in late December.
All forms can be found online, either linked from this list below or within your MyOxy portal.
