Oregon State automatically exempts a number of individuals from paying the $200 Advance Tuition Deposits.  In addition to these individuals outlined below, OSU is currently allowing any student experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19 impacts to request an exemption from paying the deposit.  It is more important for us to know who is planning to come to OSU at this time than it is to collect a deposit.

The Advanced Tuition Deposit (ATD) is a $200 deposit payment signifying a student’s commitment to Oregon State University. The ATD is a deposit, not a fee, which allows Oregon State to plan for our upcoming class. This deposit will be credited toward the student’s first term of enrollment.

The ATD is required in order to move forward with the matriculation process, which includes registering for START orientation and choosing housing options. Your $200 ATD is applied to your tuition or any account balance you may have. The enrollment deposit allows the University to more effectively plan for class offerings and student resources in preparation for the term.

Ecampus students are exempt from paying the $200 ATD. Ecampus students confirm enrollment on this form. Ecampus students participate in online orientation but do not attend START.

Students admitted for Winter, Spring or Summer 2021 should continue using this tool.  Fall 2021 admits will confirm/update their enrollment status through their admissions portal, Beaver Basecamp.

The following students are required to pay:

  • Domestic, undergraduate students (first-year and transfer)
  • Degree Partnership Program students (with some exceptions)


The following students not required to pay the ATD:
 

  • Ecampus students
  • International students
  • Post-Baccalaureate students
  • Graduate students
  • Service members and Veterans
  • Undocumented/DACAmented students

Service members, Veterans, and Veteran Dependents

Oregon State recognizes the members of the U.S. Armed Forces, veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces, and ROTC scholarship recipients, by exempting them from paying the ATD. In order to be eligible for the ATD exemption, current military members serving on active duty need to submit a copy their most recent military orders, Enlisted Records Brief (ERB), Officer Records Brief (ORB), or scholarship paperwork. Veterans need to submit a copy of their DD-214. Please email them to [email protected], or mail them to:

Office of Admissions
104 Kerr Administration Bldg.
Corvallis, OR 97331

Dependents who are using Veteran benefits for their tuition at OSU can qualify for an ATD exemption by contacting the Office of Admissions at [email protected] or 541-737-4411

Others

OSU offers ATD exemptions to qualified low-income applicants based on FAFSA results. Students who qualify for these exemptions will be notified of how to confirm their enrollment without paying the ATD. You may also be eligible if any of the following describe you:

  • Have an expected family contribution (EFC) less than $3,000 (as identified on your FAFSA)
  • Have an athletic scholarship of 50% or greater
  • Ecampus students
  • TRIO, SMILE, CAMP, EOP or LSAMP sponsored student
  • OSU Presidential Scholarship recipient
  • Employee of an Oregon public university, or family member of an employee
  • Undocumented students
  • Students experiencing financial hardships due to COVID-19

If you would like to request an exemption and confirm your enrollment, please submit our request form.

For Winter, Spring and Summer Terms, the ATD is refundable until three weeks before the start of the term. Students who have paid their ATD and indicate they wish to defer their start term to a future term by the refund deadline will have their ATD refunded and be asked to provide a new ATD prior to the term they choose to enroll.
