Honors College at OSU-Cascades

The OSU Honors College welcomed its first cohort of honors students at OSU-Cascades in the fall of 2017. The Honors College in partnership with OSU-Cascades are pleased to provide OSU-Cascades students with the opportunity to be part of the Honors College experience.

The application for the Honors College is an optional part of the OSU-Cascades application for admission for first year students. Transfer students and current OSU-Cascades students can apply via the Honors College website. Currently, the Honors College is accepting applications from current OSU-Cascades students each term. Minimum criteria for Honors College application consideration may be found here. For questions about Honors College admission, contact Gildha Cumming at 541-737-6432. 

Each year, honors courses that serve a variety of students and interests will be offered at OSU-Cascades. Current course listings can be found here.
