Transcript Notation - OSU now offers students who complete a reseasrch or creative project with an OSU professor the opportunity to get this notated on their official transcript.  The application is available HERE.  Please note that 1)  You do NOT have to wait to be a senior or graduating to apply for transcript notation.  You can do this ANYTIME during your OSU career after you complete a research or creative project; 2)  If you apply for Transcript Notation, you will not be notified you are getting it.  Instead, it will appear on your official OSU transcript about 6 weeks after the close of the term in which you apply.  The notification will NOT show on online or unofficial transcripts - only on official transcripts. 3) The application at right is good through the spring term of 2014.

Undergraduate Research Opportunities - A common misconception among students is that there is a "list" of undergraduate research opportunities.  With rare exceptions, there is no such list, yet there are MANY opportunities for students to do undergraduate research at OSU.  Interested?  First, watch the video HERE, then contact Kevin Ahern at ahernk@onid.orst.edu to get help in getting involved with an OSU professor.
