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 prefers, but does not require, the essay portion of the new SAT test that was administered beginning in March 2016.
Note: Only scores sent electronically from College Board (SAT) and/or ACT will be considered official and used for admission purposes.
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.
