Faculty and Staff Tuition Reduction Benefit

Starting winter term 2019, Oregon State University's faculty and staff tuition reduction policy was expanded to include all courses delivered through Oregon State Ecampus. Expanding this benefit creates more opportunity for personal development and career advancement by offering educational opportunities that you can access whenever and wherever you need to learn.


All existing eligibility criteria for the tuition reduction benefit will apply to Ecampus courses with one exception: The discount on Ecampus courses is only for Oregon State University faculty, staff, and their dependents, not for employees of other Oregon public universities.*

* Please note: Beginning Jan. 1, 2023 the staff rate tuition for Oregon State Ecampus online and distance courses will be available to employees and their qualifying family members of any Oregon public university. Program exclusions for online or distance courses will be the same as those noted for campus programs. See the Oregon State staff fee page for more details.

Faculty and staff

  • OSU employees appointed at half-time or more on the first day of classes may register for classes at staff rates.
  • The employee's .50 FTE appointment must be for at least 90 days.
  • Excludes part-time employees at less than .50 FTE, temporary employees, graduate assistants and other student employees.
  • An eligible employee may register for a maximum of twelve (12) credit hours per term at the staff rate.

As is the case with the current policy, Oregon State's normal admissions processes, policies and deadlines apply.
