Want to pursue an Oregon State Ecampus degree? To determine the total number of quarter-term credits required for your Ecampus program of interest, you'll need to check the graduation requirements of that degree/program and subtract your best estimate of how many transfer credits you have from the program's total number of credits. Most four-year undergraduate programs require a total of 180 quarter-term credits.

Just want to take a few Oregon State Ecampus courses? Most courses are 3 to 4 quarter-term credits each. Therefore, four courses might equal 12 credits. Check the Ecampus schedule of classes to review online courses and their numbers of credits. Course credits are found in parentheses next to course titles.

Please include your estimated total credits.

Billable Costs

  • 1 Tuition and Fees: Estimated Tuition and Fees are based on 12 credits/term undergraduate for three (3) terms, or one regular academic year. Tuition and fees can vary based on program of study, number of credits enrolled, residency status, and degree level. Actual tuition rates are pending approval by the board of trustees and approved by the Higher Education Coordinating Commission in July. More detailed information on tuition and fee charges may be found on the Business Affairs webpages.
  • 2 Room and Board: This amount is an average figure for both on-campus and off-campus living arrangements, but students are only directly billed by OSU if living on-campus. Lower cost options may also be available that can save a student up to several thousand dollars per year compared to the average (significant amounts of on-campus options are less than $9,000/year). Actual cost amounts will vary based on a student’s choices on where to live and other related expenses.

Non-Billable Costs

  • Books and Supplies: This is an average amount you might spend on books and supplies. You are not billed by OSU for these expenses.
  • Transportation Cost: This is an estimate of what you might spend during the school year on transportation.
  • Personal and Miscellaneous: This is an estimate of what you might spend during the school year on personal items, clothing, recreation and travel.
  • Loan Fee Allowance: An average amount is built in for loan recipients to cover the Federal Ford Direct Loan fees. COA shown does not include loan fee allowance.


  • OSU uses a quarter system with a standard school year consisting of three quarters or "terms" (Fall, Winter, and Spring). There is an optional fourth term (Summer Session).
  • The "1 Term" column shows the estimated costs for a standard term, such as Fall. Summer Term estimates may vary.
  • The "1 Year/3 Term" column shows the estimated costs for a standard academic year.
  • Term dates can be found on the OSU academic calendar.
