Expanded Options Program - Overview

Welcome to Oregon State University's Expanded Options Program (XOP) for high school students in Oregon. Senate Bill 300 (SB 300), passed in 2005, provides opportunities for eligible high school students (juniors and seniors) to take post-secondary classes at Oregon public community colleges and universities, paid for by their school district.

OSU created the Expanded Options Program to support this opportunity, administered by OSU Extended Campus. This program is limited to Oregon high school students. High school students from states other than Oregon can take courses as a nondegree-seeking student. Information can be found on the OSU admissions website.
