Oregon State's Summer Session offers 4-week, 8-week, 12-week and special section options and, given its unique format and modified services, is not recommended for traditional first-time freshman entry.  Freshmen who wish to apply for summer will be considered for admission in the same manner and with the same deadlines as freshmen applying for fall term.

New freshman/first-year students applying for summer or fall terms will be notified of their status based on when their application file is complete. Head to the admission requirements page for more information.

Visit the application portal to check the status of your application. Use the web ID and password that you created when you applied. You should see your application under Processed Applications. Click on your completed application.
