Oregon State University Summer Session

This really is the best summer yet, isn't it?

We don’t know about you, but we sure have been taking advantage of all of this sun Corvallis has had over the past few weeks. We might be biased, but we think this is the best time of the year in Corvallis: You can soak up the sunshine while floating the river, enjoy outdoor concerts, shop at the farmers market, bike, hike and engage in anything else your heart desires.

And while you’re out there having fun, you can also catch up or get ahead on your studies by enrolling in summer classes at Oregon State.

Browse through the schedule of classes to find a class or two for you offered on the OSU Corvallis campus. Can’t stay in Corvallis this summer? No problem. Oregon State Ecampus delivers more than 350 courses online, so you can take advantage of summer term wherever you go.
