Oregon State University

Enrollment Management

This fall marks 27 consecutive years of enrollment growth at Oregon State University.

We are Oregon’s largest public four-year university, and our status as the state’s Land Grant institution means we are here for all Oregonians.  But we also feel a larger obligation to the Pacific Northwest; so the challenges we address, and the solutions we offer, are global in nature.

Consider that OSU:

  • Generates more research funding annually than the other four-year public institutions in the state combined
  • Enrolls more residents and more nonresidents than any other four-year institution in Oregon
  • Awarded more than 30% more bachelor’s degrees in 2021-2022 than any other institution in the state
  • Is located in every county in Oregon, which makes us determined to provide a path to an OSU degree for every resident of the state

We invite you to explore our successes and our enrollment portfolio more fully on this page, or the rest of the OSU web site.  Of course, any of our EM staff is happy to answer questions or provide more information about OSU and the important work we’re doing.

Misson Statement

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

The office of Enrollment Management at OSU includes the people who manage systems and processes as we identify, recruit, and enroll new undergraduate students, including software, web communication data analytics, and admissions. EM also serves both new incoming and continuing students via the administration of state and federal financial aid, and internal and external scholarships. Additionally, we are the conduit to INTO OSU, working to ensure that OSU is an internationally vibrant and thriving community. And finally, EM is concerned with issues of access and opportunity, exposing pre-college students to opportunities via institutional and federal programs that seek to increase college attainment among students who might not otherwise be destined to consider postsecondary options.

Our Offices



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 students 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 Office of Financial Aid supports the mission of the university and Enrollment Management by providing access to higher education and equality of educational opportunity. We provide monetary assistance to students who cannot pursue their education without financial support. Financial aid programs have a direct impact on student recruitment, retention and academic achievement. We administer funds from federal, state, university and private sources to provide higher educational opportunities to all eligible students.



The Scholarship Office oversees the University Scholars Program, which awards admission-based scholarships to new undergraduate students, and administers OSU ScholarDollars, a scholarship search and application portal through which more than $11 million is awarded annually by OSU’s colleges and programs. We recognize and celebrate student excellence, diversity, and achievement through an array of scholarship opportunities and are committed to increasing opportunities for access, providing financial guidance to students and families, and encouraging engagement and research.

International Admissions


Office of International Admissions supports the INTO OSU public-private partnership by delivering OSU evaluation expertise and operations support relevant to international student recruitment. The team supports application processing and evaluation of international applicants for all undergraduate degree programs, for select graduate degree programs and for all INTO OSU programs.

Precollege Programs


The Office of Precollege Programs oversees a wide range of services to promote success for Oregon’s youth. PCP offerings, which include after-school clubs, summer camps and professional development for K-12 teachers, focus on providing pathways to higher education for students from diverse backgrounds. PCP works with OSU faculty to broaden the educational impact of their research projects while co-creating STEM learning opportunities for K-12 students. PCP also offers administrative services to enhance collaboration with youth programs in OPEN, the OSU Precollege Education Network.

Enrollment Management IT


Enrollment Management Information Technology (EMIT) provides tools and support to serve the offices of Admissions, Financial Aid, Precollege Programs and Scholarships. We help these departments make the most of OSU’s student information systems, providing third-party data integration, digital marketing, business and data analysis, routine reporting and hardware management.
