Next Steps for Becoming an OSU Student!

The following list will properly guide Winter, Spring and Summer 2021 admits through their next steps once they’ve been admitted to OSU.

Fall 2021 admits should use their admission portal, Beaver Basecamp, to view and complete next steps in the enrollment process.  

ONID provides students official OSU email accounts, web server space, and access to CANVAS plus your student portal where you can pay your ATD to notify the Admissions Office that you are attending OSU. ONID registration is also required to access OSU ScholarDollars to apply for college and departmental scholarship opportunities at OSU.

Register Your ONID Account

The ATD applies to all newly admitted students to confirm your enrollment to OSU and is payable online through myOSU portal. OSU's confirmation deadline is three weeks prior to the start of each term, although students should confirm their enrollment by making their deposit as soon as they know they will attend to allow time for advising, registration and other important next steps.

Pay Your Advance Tuition Deposit (ATD)

Submit your FAFSA

 

  • To be considered for financial aid from federal and state sources, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and list Oregon State University as one of your first six choices, with Federal School Code 003210. For the best chance of receiving aid, you should submit your FAFSA to the central processor by February 1 each year.
  • Accepting Financial Aid: If you submitted your FAFSA, you will receive a Financial Aid Award Offer. This letter outlines your financial aid package listing the financial assistance Oregon State can offer to help bridge the gap between your own resources and the cost of attending Oregon State. You can accept, reject, or revise your Financial Aid Award through MyOSU by completing the following steps:
    • Select the Paying for College tab
    • Select Financial Aid Awards
    • Select the appropriate year (ex. 2020-2021)
    • Review your Terms & Conditions by selecting the Terms and Conditions tab
    • Select Accept Award Offer tab
    • Make your decisions about the aid that you want; Click Submit when done

Some OSU scholarships, such as those offered by the University Scholars Program, are awarded to newly-admitted students based on the application for admission. Many colleges and departments also award additional scholarships based on applications submitted through Oregon State’s scholarship search and application system, OSU ScholarDollars. Newly-admitted students are eligible to apply for these scholarship opportunities through OSU ScholarDollars after they have set up their ONID accounts.

Confirm Your Enrollment with an Advance Tuition Deposit

Already confirmed?  Show your #beavernation pride with these!

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. OSU's confirmation deadline is September 1, 2020 for the Fall 2020 term.

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 osuadmit@oregonstate.edu, 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 osuadmit@oregonstate.edu 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


If you meet the above qualifications, request your exemption by submitting our request form.

For Winter, Spring and Summer Terms, the ATD is refundable until three weeks before the start of the term.  Refunds must be requested in writing to the Office of Admissions.
