Transfer START 2020 Dates

Summer/Fall Admits

Due to COVID-19, OSU-Cascades will offer all transfer advising and registration appointments remotely. Please call enrollment services at 541-322-3100 ext 1 to schedule an appointment and be connected with your academic advisor.

Preparing for Transfer START


Complete the Transfer START online orientation before your meeting with your academic advisor. Students will not be able to register for courses until this is completed.


(IMPORTANT: Students who need placement tests must take the placement tests prior to meeting with their academic advisor.)

  • Regardless of AP scores or previous college level math credit all students must take the OSU Math Placement test ALEKs. Information is available at www.math.oregonstate.edu/mlc-placement-home.
  • If you are participating in DPP and plan to take COCC courses and you have not completed a college writing course, you must take a COCC placement test to assess your writing level. For information visit the COCC website. DPP students are also encouraged to complete the ALEKs Math Placement Test several days before advising appointment to ensure registration hold is removed at COCC.
  • If you have completed math and writing in college or if you have AP, IB or CLEP tests scores make sure you have those transcripts sent to OSU-Cascades as soon as possible. You will not be able to register for all courses until this is completed.


Students will need to access their various OSU student accounts and online learning tools.
