Beaver VIP is Oregon State's on-site admissions program. Students who participate will meet with an OSU Admissions Advisor and receive their decision live and get information about next steps.
To participate in Beaver VIP and receive an admissions decision during the meeting, students must meet the following:
Note: Students who do not meet these requirements are not guaranteed a decision during the program. In some cases, students who meet all the above requirements may not be able to receive a decision.
Beaver VIP has concluded and is no longer taking registrations.
If you have questions about your application, please feel free to connect with your OSU Admissions Advisor to schedule a Beaver Briefing. Admissions decisions are not provided during Beaver Briefings.
No. It takes time for applications to move from the website to our system so it is very important for students to submit their application by the deadline if they want to get a decision.
Yes. We will still meet with students who don’t have a completed file but will not be able to provide an admissions decision.
We cannot guarantee that students who have under a 3.0 unweighted GPA will get a decision during the meeting. VIP meetings are still very helpful for the admissions process even if the student doesn’t receive a decision because we are able to add more information to the student file based on the meeting.
This meeting is designed specifically for students to meet with an Admissions Advisor and is our chance to get to know them as a student, applicant, and person. If parents/legal guardians are interested in attending, we respectfully request they only join the meeting after the decision has been made. We would be happy to answer questions they have about the process at that time.
Students can upload an unofficial transcript through their Beaver Basecamp or request their school to send a transcript for their file. Uploading transcripts through Beaver Basecamp is the fastest way to add a transcript to an application.
Students only have to report an ACT or SAT score on the application or through their Beaver Basecamp, if they selected to apply with a test score. OSU is test optional for Fall 2021 applicants and beyond, so it will be up to the student to select if they want to apply with a test score when they fill out the application.
Yes, students applying to either OSU-Cascades or Corvallis campuses can participate in Beaver VIP.
