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 participate in online orientation but do not attend START. Admitted Ecampus students should confirm their enrollment in Beaver Basecamp.
The following students are required to pay:
The following students not required to pay the ATD:
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:

If you would like to request an exemption and confirm your enrollment, please submit your request via Beaver Basecamp.
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. Fall term admits may request an ATD refund prior to May 1. After that date, the ATD is non-refundable.
