OSU Ecampus is proud to congratulate 210 graduates who received their degree through online and distance education! On June 12, 39 Ecampus graduates traveled to Corvallis to participate in OSU's graduation ceremony. Students came from as far away as Maryland, Massachusetts, and Oklahoma. For many of this year's graduates, it was the first time they had ever been on OSU's campus!

Influential Ecampus instructor awarded to Dr. Sheila Cordray

During spring term we asked students to submit a nomination for an Ecampus instructor or advisor who had been influential in helping them succeed. We received many great entries, and loved hearing the responses. Liberal Arts student Jennifer Heine's nomination for Dr. Sheila Cordray was selected as the winning entry. Both Jennifer and Dr. Cordray received a $50 gift card to the OSU Bookstore for their hard work. Read the winning nomination as well as several other student submitted entries.

Degree Partnership Program

Degree Partnership Programs (formerly referred to as Dual Enrollment programs) allow qualified students to submit a single application for admission to both OSU and a participating community college. Degree Partnership students may attend classes (including online courses) at both schools, combine credits for financial aid eligibility, and have the option of using campus facilities and services at both schools. Degree Partnerships Programs expands the course offerings available to students and gives them access to OSU advising so that they can plan the most direct and cost effective route to graduation. For more information, including a list of participating community colleges, please visit the OSU Degree Partnership Program.
