Veteran’s Day in Corvallis

November 13th, 2013

As Veteran’s Day has come and gone, it is important to reflect on why a valiant day is so important, the history behind the holiday, and how institutes are working to validate these heroes.

At Oregon State University we strive to offer specialized resources to our Veterans that not only help prepare them for a smooth transition into an undergraduate career, but to provide the guidance needed to put their degree to good use. A few popular resources available to our Veterans include: The OSU Veterans Advisory Committee, OSU Veterans Workgroup, Transitioning Assistance, and many other departments on campus with the goal of meeting the needs of Veterans and their families.

November 1st Deadline

October 23rd, 2013

November 1st is our Early Notification Deadline. To be considered for this deadline students must have a submitted application, along with their SAT/ACT scores from the testing agency and official transcripts from the High School.

The Early Notification option provides some applicants with an earlier admission decision and scholarship notification (if eligible) and allows applicants more time to make campus visits, consider their options and to take care of the Next Steps. It is also a non-binding decision; meaning it does not obligate students to select OSU if admitted.

If you have any questions about your application contact your adviser here:

Go Beavs!

In order to maximize communication with colleges, PNACAC is asking that students register themselves prior to the start of the fair at the College Fair Registration Site. Registered students will pick up their passes at the start of the fair with a unique bar code attached to their name. This bar code will contain all information the student has previously registered on the website. This bar code allows students to provide colleges with their information without filling out multiple forms or cards for each university they’ve shown interest in. If a student is interested in sharing their information with an institute, they simply offer their bar code to a representative for scanning.

Oregon State University looks forward to meeting the many students who will be attending these fairs. Feel free to stop by our booth with any questions!


See you next week and Go Beavs!
