Your Path


Reach for the stars.
You have the land, sea, space and sun behind you.

Oregon State was founded more than 150 years ago as a land grant institution, building on the idea that everybody deserves access to an education that transforms their lives. Yours could be next.

We’re proud to be one of only three land, sea, space and sun grant universities in the United States. It reflects our deep connection to the natural world and all who depend on it — our enduring purpose to reach a balance for people and planet.

You can be part of it.

Satisfy your quest for knowledge.

Admissions Requirements

Your education is an investment worth making.

Especially when we can help.

Consider the value of a college degree. According to a Georgetown University study, “Earnings of workers with a bachelor’s degree or better are still nearly twice that of high school-educated workers.” Oregon State graduates tend to earn higher salaries than the national average at the start of their careers, and they also do well at mid-career.

In the 2022-23 academic year, 70% of all first-year, full-time undergraduate students received grant or scholarship aid. Many scholarships are funded by generous alumni who’ve done well and want to support the next generation of students. One day, you might be able to do the same.

We’re ready to help you understand options for financial aid, apply for scholarships and achieve your college goals. Oregon State University awards almost $270 million in scholarships and aid each year, including nearly $15 million in donor-funded scholarships. OSU ranks the highest among all Oregon universities in total grant and scholarship dollars awarded and total undergraduates receiving them.
