Oregon State University participates in the Degree Partnership Program (DPP) with a number of community colleges throughout the state of Oregon. A degree partnership is an agreement between institutions to provide academic programs and services to students through a common admission process.
When you are admitted, you are eligible to enroll in courses at both schools, and your financial aid eligibility is based on your enrollment with OSU and the partner institution. To participate in this program, review the following:
1. Apply for admission to your degree partnership program of choice through the OSU Office of Admissions.
2. Upon admission to a specific program, you will be contacted by the OSU Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships via e-mail with instructions on declaring your home school. If you have not received this email, you can also check your Student Online Services account for unsatisfied financial aid requirements for further information.
3. Declare a home school. You can determine which institution will be your financial aid provider (home school), based on specific program criteria. You cannot receive financial aid without having an established home school. As you may only receive financial aid from one school, whichever institution you select as your home school will award and disburse your financial aid.
PLEASE NOTE: You will receive all your financial aid through your home school. If your financial award is greater than your home school costs, you will receive a financial aid refund check. You would then take your refund and use it to pay your bill at your partner school.
