At Oregon State University we are continually working to improve the online experience for our future students. We are currently implementing several new applications and during this transition we ask that you answer a few questions so that we can ensure that you fill out the correct application.
First-Year Undergraduate: Currently attending high school, or graduated from high school and have 0 to 35 quarter (23 semester) graded, transferable college credits from an accredited college or university, or hold a GED. Includes students currently taking college coursework prior to receiving their high school diploma, such as students in '5th year programs.'
Transfer Undergraduate: Completed successfully a minimum of 36 quarter (24 semester) graded, transferable credits from an accredited college or university.

For students who wish to take courses but do not plan to pursue a degree. Non-degree students do not qualify for financial aid. Non-degree students are part-time students and are expected to enroll in no more than eight credits per term. If enrolling in more than eight credits per term, a non-degree student will be charged tuition fees as a fully admitted student.
Each year, Oregon State University publishes an Annual Security and Fire Safety Report to comply with the requirements of the federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act. The report includes statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on-campus; in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by Oregon State University; and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from, the campus. The report also includes institutional policies concerning campus security, such as policies concerning sexual assault, and other matters. A printed copy of the most current Annual Security and Fire Safety Report may be picked up at the Office of Human Resources, 204 Kerr Administration Building, Corvallis, OR 97331 or a copy may be requested by emailing HR.Compliance@oregonstate.edu
