Transfer credit, whether from a high school AP class or from your previous college, will apply to your degree under the guidelines of OSU.
A complete, official evaluation of all course work reported to OSU will be available to you on Student Online Services once you have been admitted. This evaluation is referred to as an Advanced Standing Report and will reflect all college and university courses taken, as documented from your academic transcripts. The report will show whether or not OSU accepted the course in transfer, and if accepted, how it will transfer to OSU.
If you transfer to OSU from a community or junior college, up to 124 term credits (82 semester units) may be accepted toward your bachelor's degree. If the school you previously attended used the semester system, one semester credit equals 1.5 quarter credits at OSU.
OSU also accepts up to 12 hours of Professional/Technical credit. These hours are included when figuring your level (e.g. Freshman, Sophomore) and the total credits completed. They are not included in your GPA. Remedial courses are not considered in Professional/Technical hours.
For information on courses from Oregon community colleges that transfer to OSU as baccalaureate credit see Oregon Community College Articulation Tables - Bacc Core.
For information on courses from Oregon colleges and universities that transfer to OSU see Oregon Colleges and Universities Articulation Tables. Please note not all courses from all colleges and universities have been reviewed therefore courses not on the list will be reviewed upon your application and acceptance to OSU-Cascades.
You can create a worksheet for use in your educational planning and check individual courses from all schools by using the OSU Transfer Course Search. This is a great tool for students with credit from colleges and universities outside of Oregon.
