Paying for College

Is College Worth It?

Yes! National studies show college graduates earn a lot more in their lifetime than people with just a high school diploma, and they are more likely to have and keep their jobs.

How Much Does College Cost?

Tuition and fees at OSU-Cascades for an Oregon resident student taking 15 credits are $3,546 per term (2019/2020). Additional expenses may include room and board, books and supplies, personal items, and transportation. Use the Net Price Calculator to estimate the cost of education for a first time, full-time freshman student.


OSU ScholarDollars is Oregon State University's new online scholarship search and application portal. OSU students may use OSU ScholarDollars to submit an application for the nearly $50 million in campus-based scholarship funding available.

Financial Aid

Education is an investment in your future. And while you and your family have the primary responsibility for making that investment, OSU-Cascades offers several types of financial aid from federal, state and university resources.
