We’ve received a comment or two regarding the May 1st decision date. I clipped the official verbiage about it and pasted it below….
“To confirm your intent to enroll at Oregon State University, you must submit the Advanced Tuition Deposit (ATD) form along with the Revolving Charge Account form you received with your letter of admission. Be sure to sign both forms and include your $200 deposit. (Fall term applicants only)
This allows us to create your student account and make plans for your arrival. When you arrive on campus prior to the start of classes, your $200 deposit can be applied to your tuition or any account balance you may have.
Remember: Payment of your ATD is required to participate in the START program, which allows you to register for Fall term. As of May 1, 2006 your deposit is non-refundable.”
If you are not planning to attend Oregon State, an email to our Admissions office (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your name and 931 number (student id) will help us know your plans.
