Applications must be submitted along with all supporting documents, including official transcripts from all regionally accredited institutions attended before the posted deadlines. Admission application fees will not be refunded due to late arrival of required materials. Note that admission to Oregon State is just the first step of many to get enrolled. Students are strongly urged to complete their application process well in advance of posted deadlines in order to get through the subsequent steps in the process.

Applicants are encouraged to contact the department that they want to apply for admission to determine the department’s deadlines and any other restrictions.

Please note: Some academic programs establish their own application deadlines, which are often substantially earlier than the general university deadlines described below. In such cases, program deadlines supersede the more general university deadline. Some academic programs also admit applicants for specific terms only (e.g. fall term).
