Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Admissions FAQ

Oregon State University is proud to announce that we have adopted a test-optional admissions policy for freshman students applying for Fall 2021 and beyond. Students can decide to submit standardized test scores if they think the scores will add something of value to our review, or they can choose not to submit test scores if they want us to focus more intently on the high school record and other supporting documents.

Note: Oregon State University prefers that scores are sent electronically from College Board (SAT) and/or ACT, but will also accept scores included on official high school transcripts.

It is not an advantage to pay extra for "rush" scores and in some cases may add to the time it will take to process the scores within our office.

The SAT college code for Oregon State University is 4586.
The ACT college code for Oregon State University is 3482.

Students who have applied by the Priority Application deadline of February 1 must have all supporting documents required to make their application file complete (official transcripts, official test scores, etc.) to the OSU Office of Admissions by February 16 to be considered.

Complete Information About Sending Transcripts and Other Documents

New freshmen who are admitted for one term, but wish to defer their admission to a term in a future academic year must make a written request to the OSU Office of Admissions. Please reference our Deferring Your Admission page for complete details.
