Ecampus military tuition assistance

Starting fall term of the 2016-2017 academic year, Oregon State Ecampus will provide financial assistance to currently serving military members who entered the service while they were residents of Oregon and who are using military tuition assistance to help pay for their online classes.

The assistance OSU Ecampus provides will allow service members to take up to 4 credits per term, at the undergraduate or graduate level, at no additional cost above what the military tuition assistance program will pay. This award is in addition to your other military education benefits.

(NOTE: The OSU Ecampus military tuition assistance program is not transferrable to military dependents.)

Eligibility

This program is currently available only to service members who joined the United States military while a resident of Oregon and are currently serving on active duty or as a member of the National Guard or Reserves. 

In order to qualify for the OSU Ecampus military tuition assistance, you must be:

  • a current or newly admitted Ecampus degree-seeking student at Oregon State
  • listed in good academic standing with no registration flags 
  • an Oregon resident at the time of your enlistment
(NOTE: If you entered the service as an Oregon resident but records do not show an original residence of Oregon for you, please contact Joan Oakes at joan.oakes@oregonstate.edu or 541-737-4166 to resolve the issue.) 

Award process

OSU's Office of Military and Veteran Resources will determine which students are eligible based on the stated criteria. The tuition award will be provided to eligible students in the form of a voucher through OSU’s Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships, and it is not needs-based.
