DPP for Students

               

Welcome to the Degree Partnership Program (DPP), your pathway to completing a university degree more quickly and more affordably. Previously named "Dual Enrollment", this program allows you to be jointly admitted and enrolled at Oregon State University and any community college partner. The program is open to all undergraduate students pursuing their bachelor's degree. International students may also be in the DPP program with Linn-Benton Community College and Portland Community College, but are required to work with their International Advisors. Post-Bac student may also participate in the program but must first be admitted to OSU.

FAQs

DPP Frequently Asked Questions

Below are a few of the most frequently asked questions about the DPP and dual enrollment. To find responses specific to LBCC, classroom4.jpgvisit: http://www.linnbenton.edu/go/degree-partnership.

Who can apply to the Degree Partnership Program?

Any student who meets the requirement of the DPP program or any current undergraduate or post-baccalaureate student at OSU. Admission requirements can be found on the Apply Now DPP webpage.

How is my tuition calculated?

You will be billed the appropriate (in-state, out-of-state, or international) community college tuition and fees for courses taken at the partner school. You will be billed the appropriate (in-state, out-of-state) OSU tuition and fees for courses taken at OSU.

What are the add/drop and tuition refund deadlines?

OSU - You may add and drop courses through the first seven-ten class days of each term (depending on the term). Add/drop fees will apply. The Tuition/Fee policies are published in the Schedule of Classes.

What are my payment options?

Please note that you are responsible for payment of charges at both institutions separately. Tuition payment options at OSU include:

When will I be billed?

OSU - Monthly statements will be mailed around the 20th of each month detailing all charges, credits, and payments to your account for the previous 30 days. Inquiry of your account through telephone, kiosk, or the Web will include fees/charges assessed to your account.

If there appears to be an error on your monthly statement, contact Business Affairs Student Accounts, 100 Kerr Administration Building, 541-737-3031

What if I cannot pay by the payment deadline?

OSU - The amount due on your statement becomes past due on the 11th of each month. Balances remaining on the 11th of the month will be assessed interest at the rates of 1 percent per month (12 percent APR) and may be subject to collection fees. If you are enrolled for the current term, you will be allowed to register for the following term only if your account balance does not exceed $2,200. If you are not currently enrolled, you must have your account balance paid in full in order to register. Requests for official transcripts will be denied until your account balance is paid in full.

When does the term start at OSU? When do I take finals?

OSU Academic Calendar

What if I get suspended from OSU, can I be in the Degree Partnership Program?

No - The DPP program is only for current students at the university.  If you are suspended while in the program, your DPP status will be removed from your account because you are no longer a current student and the community college will be notified.  The staff at the community college can assist you in meeting the requirement to be reinstated at OSU.  When you get reinstated to OSU, your DPP status will be added back to your OSU account and the community college will be notified that you have been reinstated to the DPP program.

How is my GPA calculated?

GPA is kept in two different ways.  You have an Institution GPA (OSU GPA) and Transfer GPA (from all other colleges and universities).  These two GPAs are not combined and your transfer GPA work will not be considered for university honors. Individual colleges and departments may consider course work done at other colleges for admission into professional programs or to meet program requirements.  The programs may combine course work and grades to calculate combined GPAs but these are not official calculations for the university.

Can I apply to the Degree Partnership Program if I have been suspended from OSU?

No- The DPP program is only for current students at the university.  If you are suspended, you are no longer a current student and therefore cannot be in the program.  You can apply directly to the community college you are interested in and they can assist you in being admitted as well as help you meet the requirements to get reinstated at OSU.

Can I live on campus at OSU?

All admitted DPP students are eligible to live in a residence hall or cooperative house at OSU. You can find information on housing at: http://uhds.oregonstate.edu/housing/apply-now.

Can I attend the community college and use the services at OSU?

Yes.  You can send a request to student accounts (accounts.receivable@oregonstate.edu) requesting to pay the student fees for services. Be sure to include your OSU ID number and Date of Birth.  You can also go to the Student Accounts in the lobby of the Kerr Administration building and make the request in person.  You must pay ALL mandatory fees at the full-time rate.  As of fall term 2015-16 this rate is $524.11.  These services included access to Student Health Services, Recreation Sports (Dixon Rec Center), Counseling and Psychological Services, Memorial Union programs and services and OSU Athletic events.

I heard there is a bus that goes between the LBCC and OSU main campuses, is that true?

Yes. The Linn-Benton Loop bus provides transportation between the two main campuses.  In addition, show OSU or LBCC ID card and your fare is covered (free).  You can find a link here to get more information and "The Loop" schedule. Click HERE is a video about the Loop Bus.    Be sure to consult the schedule to make sure you can make connections before registering for classes.

How do my credits get from the Partner school to OSU?

At the end of each term, the Registrar's office at each community college will send the transcripts for each DPP student to OSU.  The Admissions office at OSU will then review the transcripts and add the new courses to your OSU transcript. This process takes approximately one month after the end of each term.  (Blue Mt. Community College DPP students must request a transcript be sent to OSU at this time)  If it has been longer than one month after the term has been completed and you do not see the courses taken on your OSU transcript, please contact the DPP Student Services Manager for assistance.

Do I need to have myself removed from the DPP program when I am done at the Community College?

No.  It is recommended that you stay enrolled in the program.  Even if you do not take additional community college courses, it will not impact your academic record.  If you decide to complete courses at the community college later, this makes transferring credits to OSU much easier.  It also prevents you from having to reapply to the program.  Once your home school is declaired for OSU, you will continue to have OSU as your home school until you request that it is changed.

What is a "Reverse Transfer?"

Reverse Transfer is yet another benefit just for DPP students!

Oregon State University has partnered with Linn-Benton Community College to help identify and award Associate degrees to students that have completed the degree requirements but may be unaware of this achievement.

At the conclusion of week six each term, the OSU Registrar's office will send OSU transcripts for qualifying degree partnership program students to Linn-Benton. Linn-Benton will evaluate the course work to determine if requirements have been met for an Associate degree at LBCC. LBCC will contact eligible students. 

The transfer of records from OSU to LBCC will cease once a student has been awarded an Associate degree from LBCC or applied for their Baccalaureate degree from OSU. We know our students work hard and we wish to see them justly awarded for the degrees they have earned.

If you have questions or concerns about this process, you may contact:

LBCC: Jane Tillman, tillmaj@linnbenton.edu or call 541-917-4912

OSU Registrar's Office: registrars@oregonstate.edu or call 541-737-4331

Registration

Registering for your first term at OSU

As a DPP student, you have been admitted to one (or more) community college partner(s) and OSU, and are eligible for dual enrollment at both schools.

When a degree partnership student wants to register for the first time for classes at OSU, there are several things to do and persons to check with to make sure registration goes smoothly.

If you have not registered for an OSU course before, the information below will help you register easily and successfully.

How do I know whether I am eligible to register?

Degree partnership students are eligible to register at OSU once they are accepted into the degree partnership program. As a degree partnership student, you remain eligible to register at OSU from your term of admission through the next ten terms (including summer terms), even if you do not actually register for classes.

If you have not registered for classes at OSU within 10 terms, you will need to reapply for the degree partnership program through Admissions.  If you have taken classes at OSU but have not taken classes in more than 10 terms at OSU, you will need to contact the OSU Registrar's office to be readmitted. 

What should I do before I register?

The most important thing to do before you try to register for a class is to contact the OSU advisor for your major. The advisor (or head advisor's office for your college) will provide you with essential advising assistance, and will also give you a registration PIN (Personal Identification Number).

Your advisor will give you your registration PIN once all your academic advising is complete. The registration PIN is necessary for you to register at OSU. When you log in to your account on the OSU website and access the online registration page, you will be asked for the registration PIN. If you do not enter it, you cannot register for classes.

You should call the advisor for the OSU college and major that you are pursuing or interested in. Students who have not declared a major should contact the advisor for the University Exploratory Studies Program on dual enrollment. Your advisor will help you with academic questions and advice. It is strongly recommended that you meet with your advisor(s) at least once per term.

Head advisors are listed in the Schedule of Classes (SOC).

If you are a DPP student with LBCC and need a prerequisite overide, please click here and complete the form and upload your transcripts to the LBCC Registration office.  They will then assist you in getting overides for the classes you are interested in.

When can I register for classes?

Registration for classes at OSU follows a priority schedule. Please check the priority schedule to see when you can register for classes.

The priority registration schedule starts during the last month of the previous term. The priority schedule is based on class standing (e.g., seniors, juniors, sophomores, freshmen) and first letter of your last name.

How do I register for classes?

You can register through the online registration page on the OSU web site. From the OSU home page, log in to your account by clicking on Online Services (top of page).

The web site includes instructions for registration. Remember, you will need your registration PIN from your advisor before you can register at OSU for the first time.

New students to OSU can register during an OSU START session, or at OSU CONNECT. Contact New Student Programs and Family Outreach for more information, either at 541-737-7627. New Student Programs also has great information for OSU students on all aspects of student academic life and orientation.

Advising

Make sure you are taking courses that will apply toward your major at OSU. In order to do this, work with your OSU Academic Advisor, even if you are taking your courses at your community college!

DPP Advising for First-Time Prospective DPP Students

Welcome prospective first-year students! If you are eligible to apply and be admitted to OSU, then you are eligible to be in the DPP program. Requirements can be found here.

Before registering for any classes, it is essential that you know what courses you need to take for your degree at OSU. If you are a new or currently admitted OSU student, you must attend a START orientation program before you enroll in courses. If you will be admitted as a distance degree student, you will need to complete the Ecampus Online Oreintation program. International students should contact International Student and Faculty Services (ISFS) at 541-737-6310.

Advising Resources:

Step 1: Understand OSU's academic structure, and the main components of an OSU degree.

Step 2: Determine how your credits transfer.

  • Credits from Oregon Institutions: 
    • For credits from Oregon colleges or universities, you can use our Articulation Tables.  
    • For two year colleges in Oregon and Hawaii, consult our Baccalaureate Core Equivalency Guide for Baccalaureate Core courses only (OSU’s general education requirements).
    • Transfer guides also provide course equivalency information between OSU and Oregon community colleges.
  • Credits from institutions Outside of Oregon

    *For other advanced credit information, click here!

Step 3: Now see how the credits count towards your OSU degree!

Step 4: Please contact us if you have any questions!

What classes do I take at my partner school?

Once you know what courses you need to take for your OSU degree, begin determining which of those courses you can take at your partner school using our Transfer Information & Articulation Tables A-Z guides or our Baccalaureate Core Equivalency Guide.

For important academic information and deadlines, view our OSU Academic Calendar!

Transfer Advising

Transfer credits:

Transferring from one institution to another is not easy! Many students want to know how their credits will transfer and how they will count toward an OSU degree. While we do not officially articulate transfer credits (show how each transfer credit transfers into OSU and how they count towards your degree) until you have applied, been admitted, and let us know you are coming to OSU, we do have tools you can use to do this work in advance of our official credit evaluation. Once you are admitted and committed to coming to OSU, we will complete an Advanced Standing Report which is OSU’s official evaluation of any transfer credits submitted by in during the admissions process.

Degree Partnership Orientation

New DPP Student Handout

 

Transition to OSU: Fall Term

Be sure to take advantage of OSU's three-step approach to welcoming and orienting new students who enter fall term.

1st step: You will receive information about participating in START, the summer registration and advising program required of all new students. START is a great way to learn about Oregon State and the OSU student experience. Prior to registering for you first term classes, you must attend a START orientation program.  If you are a distance degree student, you will need to complete the Ecampus Online Oreintation program.

2nd step: OSU Welcome Week is a five-day orientation program to help you adjust to OSU life during the first few days on campus. The week includes over 200 academic and social programs where you’ll have the opportunity to meet and interact with other new and current students in addition to faculty and staff.

3rd step: U-ENGAGE is a 2-credit course that helps you investigate an academic area of interest, as well as learn more about OSU. In a smaller class environment, you will join other new students who share an interest in exploring a particular academic area. Additionally, you will gain an understanding of campus resources and explore the tips and habits of highly successful students.

You may also choose to register at a make up START session during OSU CONNECT, the week before classes begin.

Transition to OSU: Winter and Spring Terms

Step #2: Upon admission to a specific program, the OSU Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships will contact admitted students via e-mail with information on the financial aid process.

Step #3: Students will determine which partner institution will be the financial aid provider (home school), based on specific program criteria.

Home School Credit Hour Requirements:  Each community college and OSU have credit hour minimums required to process financial aid as the home institution.  Below is a list of the credit hour requirements.

DPP For International Students

Current OSU international students may also participate in the Degree Partnership Program (DPP) with two community colleges, Linn-Benton Community College and Portland Community College, which means international students must first be admitted to OSU and be taking classes at OSU in order to participate, as 3 credits must be taken on-campus at OSU each term. 

 

If you are an international student wanting to take advantage of DPP, here are the steps for you to follow:

 

Step one: apply as an international OSU student

 

Step two: once admitted, set-up an ONID (Oregon State Username and Password) http://onid.oregonstate.edu/

 

Step three: Once you have finished your first term at OSU, you may apply as a current OSU student adding DPP with either Linn-Benton Community College or Portland Community College: http://oregonstate.edu/partnerships/newcurrent-osu-student-application-directions

 

Step four: connect with an International Student Advising and Services (ISAS) advisor: http://international.oregonstate.edu/isas/contact-isas to talk about your academic plans and make sure all visa, sponsorship, academic requirements, etc. are being met.

 

Step five: meet with an ISAS advisor every term to fill out the “concurrent enrollment form” http://international.oregonstate.edu/sites/international.oregonstate.edu/files/ISAS/forms/concurrent-enrollment.pdf.

 

Here is a form that may help you understand this better: http://international.oregonstate.edu/sites/international.oregonstate.edu/files/ISAS/forms/dpp-instructions.pdf.

Degree Partership Program Advantages for Transfer Students

In addition, students in this program have access to OSU services early on that can support a healthy transition from a community college to OSU. Admissions requirements for transferring to OSU through the DPP program can be found by clicking here. Click here for the many advangates to this program:

Degree Partnership Program and Oregon Promise

The Oregon Promise provides affordable access for Oregon residents to higher education.  If you are eligible for Oregon Promise, but want to be a part of Beaver Nation now or in the future, you have options as a Degree Partnership Program (DPP) student! DPP allows you to be considered a student at both OSU and any of our Oregon community college partners.

      Option 1:  Dual enroll at a community college (using Oregon Promise) and OSU.

      Option 2:  Enroll at only your community college (using Oregon Promise) and then at OSU later.

      Option 3:  Enroll only at OSU using OSU scholarships and aid.

 

Which option is right for you?

Option 1:  Dual enrollment

Participation in DPP allows students to dual-enroll at both OSU and an Oregon community college.  A student could, therefore, receive a portion of their Oregon Promise for the courses taken at the community college (6 credits per term minimum), while getting started on coursework at OSU.  DPP participation has many benefits, like it allows these students to live in our residence halls while doing so.

The drawback is that students are not able to use any OSU scholarships offered to them as an incoming freshman while they collect on their Oregon Promise at the community college.  The exception is for degree seeking OSU-Cascades students because they must take Central Oregon Community College (COCC) coursework to achieve an OSU-Cascades degree.  Therefore these dually enrolled students are able to receive OSU scholarship support so long as they are enrolled in six OSU-Cascades credits and an additional six COCC credits concurrently.

DPP students wishing to dual-enroll may receive any offered OSU scholarships on the Corvallis campus so long as they enroll in the term for which they were admitted in at least six credits and claim OSU as their home school for financial aid purposes.  DPP students enrolled this way would also get any available financial aid from OSU and your aid would count coursework taken at the community college toward full-time enrollment.  Note, this is not an option if you also want to get Oregon Promise at your community college, because Oregon Promise requires the community college to be the home school.

Visit our DPP homepage for information on DPP benefits, how financial aid works when students are dual-enrolled, and more!

Option 2:  Enroll at only your community college (using Oregon Promise) and then at OSU later

Students wishing to take full advantage of Oregon Promise may choose to enroll only at their community college to start.  By participating in DPP, these students will have 10 terms before they have to take a course at OSU, but within those 10 terms they will have an active student status at OSU. This means students can continue to receive all the benefits of DPP, including access to OSU advising, credits transferred to OSU each term, and the ability to enroll at OSU when they are ready to make the transition.

Visit our DPP homepage for information on DPP benefits, how financial aid works when students are dual-enrolled, and more!

Option 3:  Start directly at OSU

In some cases, it may be to your benefit to enroll full-time at OSU and not take Oregon Promise funds at a community college.  This may be the case when the four-year scholarship offered to you by OSU is greater than the two year value of Oregon Promise at a community college.  This occurs because OSU scholarships are more readily available to new incoming freshmen than to transfers.

For example, a student offered an annual $6,000 Academic Achievement Scholarship who is not Pell or Oregon Opportunity eligible would pay zero towards tuition and fees for two years at a community college, followed by approximately $22,000 over the next two years ($11,000 per year) at OSU if they chose to take Oregon Promise.  If they chose to enroll at OSU for all four years, they’d receive their $6,000 per year in scholarships each year and pay approximately $20,000 over four years ($5,000 per year) in tuition and fees.

Scholarship-eligible students who qualify for Pell and Oregon Opportunity Grant funding fair even better when they start at OSU.
