Study, work, play

Summer’s flexible schedule means you can do it all

Life is full of tough decisions. College students know this all too well.

French fries or tater tots? T-shirt or tank top? Netflix or a nap?

All kidding aside, summer term at Oregon State doesn’t make you choose between two things that will benefit you. Our flexible schedule enables you to complete your degree requirements and also work a job or an internship.

OSU’s summer classes last anywhere from one week to 11 weeks, and you can start in June, July or August. The flexibility of the summer calendar makes it possible to do just about anything:

Need to take a class that ends in the middle of July so you can go home and work for a couple months? Not a problem.

Looking for an evening course so you can work your morning shift to help cover rent costs? There are plenty to choose from.

Taking a study break until August when you plan to enroll in a three-week bacc core class? We’ve got that covered, too.

No matter what your unique student situation calls for, OSU summer classes can accommodate anything. It’s the best of all worlds.

Registration opens April 10, so start planning your summer on campus today.
