OSU Summer Session

July 26, 2016

Oregon State University Summer Session

Why wait? Sign up today for summer classes

Looking for plans to fill the rest of your summer? Here's an idea: Sign up for Session 5 of summer term and knock out a requirement, catch up where you're behind or get ahead before fall term kicks off.

You still have time, so check out the OSU Summer Session schedule of classes today to find quick links to class listings - or create your own unique search using the summer 2016 catalog searcher. Choose from more than 50 undergraduate courses still available on the OSU Corvallis campus.

An added perk: everyone pays in-state tuition for on-campus courses.*

If you're not in Corvallis the rest of the summer, Oregon State Ecampus delivers a variety of courses online, so you can take advantage of summer term wherever you go.

*Does not apply to VetMed or PharmD courses or INTO students.

  Bard in the Quad

"And I, forsooth, in love - I have been love's whip."

Pack a picnic and join us in the MU Quad next month to enjoy a fun Corvallis summer tradition - Bard in the Quad. Tickets are on sale for this year's event, which features William Shakespeare's charming romantic comedy, "Love's Labour's Lost."

The show begins at 7:30 p.m. and runs Aug. 4-7 and 11-14.

OSU Summer Session is a proud supporter of Bard in the Quad.
