Admission Priority Deadlines for Students

Application Priority Deadlines

Your application along with your $60 nonrefundable application fee must be received no later than February 1 (by 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time) to be considered a priority application. Applications submitted after February 1 will not be considered for scholarships and may not be considered for admission to the university. Remember, regardless of which term you are applying for, the scholarship consideration deadline is February 1 before the start of the school year.

Students who have applied by the Priority Application deadline of Feb. 1 must have all supporting documents required to make their application file complete (official transcripts, official test scores) to the OSU Office of Admissions by Feb. 13th to be considered.

After these deadlines, students submitting applications and supporting information will be considered for admission on a space-available basis.

If you are applying for admission for winter, spring, or summer term; please apply and submit all required documents before the posted deadlines below to ensure your application can be reviewed in sufficient time before the term starts. Admission application fees will not be refunded due to late arrival of required materials. Note that admission to Oregon State is just the first step of many to get enrolled. Students are strongly urged to complete their application process well in advance of posted deadlines in order to get through the subsequent steps in the process.

Application Deadlines

Applications filed and supporting documents received after these deadlines may not be considered for admission to the university.

*New freshman/first-year students applying for summer or fall terms will be notified of their status based on when their application file is complete. Early Notification round applicants (freshmen/first-year only) click here for more information about deadlines.
