Current OSU Students
Trying to figure out how an education abroad experience will fit into your degree plan here at OSU?
- Attend a First Steps meeting in Heckart Lodge at noon and 4:00 p.m. daily to chat with a returned student and learn more about programs, scholarships, and how to apply.
- Check out the Major Advising Sheets to see if your major has a list of programs that will be the best fit for your degree plan. Meet with your academic advisor to discuss your degree plans.
- After attending a First Steps meeting, set up an appointment with a study abroad advisor by phoning 541-737-3006.
- Research the application process and deadlines for the programs you're considering.
- Make sure you've filed FAFSA and that you're searching scholarships and financial aid options for your time abroad.
Future OSU Students
If you are considering attending OSU, the education abroad offerings are a definite plus. OSU study abroad, IE3 Global Internships, and the International Degree stand out:
- All approved study abroad programs earn resident credit...not transfer credit. This means your courses abroad get applied to your degree plan as they would if you took them on campus.
- IE3 Global Internships are a fantastic way to stand out when applying for a job. You'll also earn credit toward your degree, so if you are considering a major that requires an internship, you can take care of it abroad.
- Education abroad options fit into your major...in fact, the department you will join at OSU already has some suggestions about when to go and which programs will offer credit in your major.
- Since you're a resident student at OSU when you go abroad, you take your OSU financial aid and scholarships with you and are eligible to apply for more.
- The International Degree is the oldest of its kind in the country. You'll earn a concurrent second bachelors' degree in the International Studies of your primary major while gaining competence in research, language, and intercultural skills.
All future OSU students should visit with a representative from IDEA at admissions events, or request an appointment when you visit campus. To get involved, contact Admissions.
