Transferring to Oregon State
It is important that you start planning at least one and a half years before your intended first term. Oregon State campuses offer more than 200 undergraduate programs (majors, options, double degrees, etc.).
Many students want to know what courses they should take before they transfer so that their credits will transfer and count towards their desired degree. Resources to help students with this process vary major-by-major. Follow the steps below, make note of your questions along the way and email your questions to the Transfer Student Service Manager.
Applying to college can be a detailed process. Be aware of all of the deadlines and requirements so that your journey goes smoothly.
International transfer students wanting to enter Oregon State from either another U.S. institution or an institution outside of the U.S. are encouraged to review the international admissions requirements and contact the international admissions office.
OSU is committed to supporting our undocumented and DACAmented transfer students. As an undocumented or DACA student, know that transferring to Oregon State University is simple. However, we do understand that it can become confusing and overwhelming to know where to start. We can guide and provide the information you'll need to successfully transfer to OSU.
