Charles Edwards, Ph.D. | OSU Ecampus graduateHere’s a summary of the various types of degrees that Ecampus delivers online and for whom these programs are designed.

Undergraduate degrees

Oregon State grants Bachelor of Arts (B.A) and Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degrees that are designed to take about four years to complete. At OSU, you earn a bachelor’s degree once you complete a minimum of 180 program-specific credits.

People who pursue a bachelor’s degree may or may not have college experience, but must hold either a high school diploma or a GED. Previously earned college credits from institutionally accredited colleges or universities will be reviewed for transfer on a course by course basis.

Postbaccalaureate students

A postbaccalaureate (or postbacc) student is someone who already has a bachelor’s degree and wants to earn another in a different field. This option often makes sense for those who want to study a subject in which a graduate degree is not available or necessary to meet their career needs.

Postbacc students can enroll in any Ecampus undergraduate program. Ecampus also delivers a B.S. in Computer Science that is specifically designed for postbacc students.

Nondegree students often take classes for professional development or personal enrichment. Ecampus delivers more than 1,750 courses online in more than 110 subject areas.
