International Students

Oregon State students come from all over the world. OSU boasts over 30,000 students from more than 90 different countries, including almost 3,900 international students. Summer at OSU is a wonderful time to be on campus and enroll in sessions that are designed to last anywhere from one to 11 weeks during the months of June, July, August and early September. 

When to apply

Students studying inside the Memorial Union

If you are currently outside the United States and plan to begin your bachelor's program at OSU during summer term, we recommend that you submit your application for admission and supporting documents four to six months prior to the start of the term. Applicants to master's or Ph.D. programs should refer to their prospective department for details regarding admission terms and application deadlines. For more details, check the OSU Graduate School's website.

If you are currently in the U.S. on another school's I-20 and wish to enroll at OSU during your vacation period only, please submit the online application for non-degree students. You will be directed to contact an OSU international student advisor by email at or by phone at 541-737-6310 and may need to provide documentation regarding your current immigration status. Consult with your home institution's international student advisor if you have questions about maintaining your current F-1 status.
