(U.S. citizens, permanent residents and students eligible under HB 2787)
Transfer students are students who have successfully completed at least 36 quarter hour (24 semester) graded, transferable credits from one or more regionally accredited colleges and universities.
Students with fewer than 36 graded transferable credits will be considered
on the basis of their high school records and test scores, and must
have a 2.25 GPA on all collegiate work attempted. If you have fewer
than 36 credits, please see First-Year Student Admissions requirements.
If you are an international student, see International Student requirements.
Consideration will be given to applicants with a 2.00 GPA who have received the Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer degree from an Oregon community college.
Please note that academic performance is not the sole criterion for admission to the university. The university may evaluate a person's behavior and background to determine their ability to maintain the standards of academic and professional conduct expected at the university. An evaluation may take into consideration current behavior and performance as well as past experiences and actions. Simply qualifying for admission does not guarantee admission.
Computation of GPA:
The official policies of OSU regarding academic record evaluation for purposes of admission include:
--Only the highest grade for a repeated course will be calculated in the GPA;
--Only transferable college-level credits are accepted and counted in the GPA computation (professional-technical course grades are not included);
--Academic bankruptcy or forgiveness of low grades is not a policy recognized at OSU. Classes must be repeated to have a grade replaced;
Credit accepted in transfer must have been completed at regionally accredited colleges or universities. Official transcripts of all college work attempted must be submitted directly from the registrar's office of each institution. Official transcripts faxed directly to the OSU Office of Admissions will be accepted if they are sent with the Registrar's office cover sheet and are from a school located within the United States.
Petition for Exception
Students who do not meet admission requirements may petition for exception. For further information, write or call the Office of Admissions. Deadlines for appeals are in effect for each quarter.
