OSU requires students graduating high school in the year 2013 and beyond to submit SAT or ACT scores. Students can submit an ACT score, or either of the SAT tests - the previous version that includes the mandatory essay portion, or the new 2016 version in which the essay will be an optional portion of the test. OSU does not prefer, nor require the essay portion of the ACT or SAT exams.
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.
