Enrollment Services – Registrars Offices
Student enrollment services, including official course schedules, registration, grade reports, transcripts, and official student records, are provided by the OHSU and PSU Registrar’s Offices, who work collaboratively to facilitate student course registration across the universities.
The PSU Registrar’s Office manages enrollment services for students in the MPH/MSW and MURP/MPH dual degree programs, as well as students in certain other degree programs who matriculated prior to Fall 2017.
The OHSU Registrar’s Office manages enrollment services for all other School of Public Health graduate students.
- Students whose enrollment services are managed by the OHSU Registrar’s Office always register using OHSU systems, and are referred to in SPH policies and procedures as “OHSU registrants.”
- Students whose enrollment services are managed by PSU Registrar’s Office always register using PSU systems, and are referred to in SPH policies and procedures as “PSU registrants.”

Tuition & Fees
Tuition and fees are approved by the universities prior to the beginning of each academic year. Students are billed by the university that manages their enrollment, except that on-campus housing, meal plans, childcare, and some additional specialty services are always billed by PSU. Library fines are billed by the university from which the books were borrowed.
Occasionally, students may obtain permission to take a course outside the School of Public Health that is billed at a different rate than that charged by the student’s academic program. Students are responsible for the billed cost of these courses.
Refunds are granted to students in accordance with the OHSU’s Academic Tuition and Fees Refund Schedule or PSU’s Tuition Refund Schedule, depending upon the university through which students enroll. Notification of withdrawal or cancellation and request for refund must be in writing and addressed to the appropriate Registrar. An appeals process is available for students who believe their circumstances warrant exceptions to the published policy.
