Oregon State University is pleased to accept Willamette Promise (WP) coursework for credit toward OSU requirements.
Western Oregon University offers assessment-based learning credits through the Willamette Promise program. In assessment-based learning, students are awarded credit for meeting college-level outcomes based on courses taught in their high school. Assessment-based learning (ABL) credits are subject to review by Oregon State University, but OSU has traditionally not granted credit earned through ABL, as credits awarded in this fashion do not typically conform with the academic standards or our own coursework as established by OSU’s teaching faculty. As such, OSU does not automatically award equivalent credit for these courses in all subjects. Listed below are the credit transfers that OSU offers for these courses.
Western Oregon University credits earned through Willamette Promise courses transfer to OSU in the following ways:
Once enrolled at OSU, a student may petition academic departments to evaluate specific Willamette Promise coursework for equivalent credit at Oregon State. Current OSU students wishing to explore the petitioning process or placement options should contact:
