WELCOME FUTURE BEAVS!
There are a few things you will need to do now that you are admitted.
Get the details for your campus.
All new OSU students must attend a new student orientation (START) prior to enrollment in any OSU course. The orientation is essential as you will connect with important OSU information, such as how billing, financial aid, and more function at OSU. In addition, you will meet with an OSU advisor, register for classes, and learn about OSU services and resources designed for your success. It is a good idea to familiarize yourself with MyOregonState and MyDegrees prior to attending START.
Students admitted for a summer term may register for summer term classes without first attending an orientation, but will have to attend an orientation prior to enrolling in sequential terms.
Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). To be considered for the maximum amount of federal, state, and OSU loans and grants, complete the FAFSA each year in October when it becomes available.
Learn all about your financial resources through our Paying For College Undocumented Student website.
Complete the Oregon State Aid Application (ORSAA) (for DACA/tuition equity students) every year for the Oregon Opportunity Grant and various scholarships. Complete the ORSAA each year in October when it becomes available for maximum consideration.
As you come to Oregon State, you may be asking yourself, "How do I ensure I do well in my courses?" We hope that this information we provide may be of assistance.
