Mission Statement

Setting and fulfilling enrollment goals, recruiting, retaining, providing access and caring for students throughout their college career...


The Office of Admissions identifies, recruits and admits qualified undergraduate applicants to Oregon State University in alignment with enrollment goals.   In collaboration with campus partners, we promote access and diversity in keeping with OSU’s land grant mission. We seek to attract and enroll those who will thrive here, who will help others thrive here, and who will continue to benefit from their OSU experience beyond graduation.

Financial Aid

The mission of the Oregon State University Office of Financial Aid is to support the overall mission of the University and Enrollment Management by providing access to higher education and equality of education opportunity.  The Office of Financial Aid provides monetary assistance to students who can benefit from further education but who cannot do so without financial assistance.  The quality and services of the financial aid programs has a direct impact upon the recruitment and retention of students and the pursuit of academic achievement.  The Office of Financial Aid administers funds from Federal, state, institutional and private sources to insure higher educational opportunities to all eligible students.

Precollege Programs

The Office of Precollege Programs (PCP) supports and oversees a wide range of programs designed to increase the success of Oregon’s youth. Programs ranging from afterschool clubs, to summer camps, to K-12 teacher professional development, focus on providing students from diverse backgrounds pathways to higher education. PCP also offers administrative services to enhance the collaboration, synergy and efficiency of programs in the OSU Precollege Education Network (OPEN).

Degree Partnership Programs

Previously named "Dual Enrollment", this program allows you to be jointly admitted and enrolled at Oregon State University and any of our community college partner schools.
