Understanding how credits transfer to OSU-Cascades
Once you are admitted and have confirmed your enrollment at OSU-Cascades, we will complete an Advanced Standing Report, which is OSU’s official evaluation of any transfer credits submitted during the admissions process. You will be notified that this evaluation has been done via email.
While we do not officially evaluate transfer credits until you have confirmed your enrollment, we do have tools you can use to do this work in advance of our official credit evaluation.

The Advanced Standing Report: your official transfer credit evaluation at OSU-Cascades
The Advanced Standing Report is OSU's official evaluation of any transfer credits submitted by you in the admissions process. This is done and provided to you once you have been admitted and indicated your intent to enroll by paying your Advance Tuition Deposit (ATD). The Office of Enrollment Services, with assistance from the academic units, determines the transferability of course work completed at other institutions. The petitions below provide an opportunity for the student and/or academic unit to inquiry changes to the articulation for transfer courses and/or request articulations for courses taken at a non-regionally accredited college.
Students should work with their academic advisor if they are considering petition a course for substitution.
