Fall Term Applicants:

Your application along with your $65 nonrefundable application fee must be received no later than February 1 (by 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time) to be considered Regular Application. Applications submitted after February 1 will not be considered for scholarships, but may be considered for admission to the university, based on availability.

Freshman/First year students who have applied by the Regular Application deadline of February 1 must have all supporting documents required to make their application file complete (official transcripts, official test scores, etc.) to the OSU Office of Admissions by February 14 to be considered.

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. Here is a link for more information about freshman deadlines, requirements and decision dates, including OSU's November 1 Early Action deadline. (Affected by the wildfires in California?  Please see this page.)

Winter, Spring and Summer Term Applicants:

Students applying for winter, spring, or summer terms must apply and submit all required documents before the posted deadlines below to ensure your application can be reviewed in sufficient time before the term starts. Admission application fees will not be refunded due to late arrival of required materials. Students are strongly urged to complete their application process well in advance of posted deadlines in order to get through the subsequent steps in the process.

Regardless of which term you are applying for, the scholarship consideration deadline is February 1 before the start of the school year in which you plan to enter.

New freshman/first-year students applying for summer term will be evaluated for admission using the same criteria and processes as fall applicants.

Post-Bacc Applicants (all terms):

Post-bacc applicants (students who have earned a bachelor’s degree and who are applying to pursue another at OSU), should consult our Post-Bacc deadlines page for info on admission deadlines and processes.
