Our student support never stops – in good times or in crisis

No matter the (social) distance, we've got you.

Here’s one of the biggest misconceptions about learning online: Students have to learn all by themselves, with minimal interaction from their faraway instructors and classmates, and with little support from the university community.

(Another big misconception: Online students are always wearing pajamas.)

At Oregon State University, the faculty who develop and teach classes online are experts at creating innovative, engaging ways for students to interact with classmates, instructors and the course content.

To make it even better, that enriching online learning environment is accompanied by a robust support system for Oregon State Ecampus students. This ensures that distance students aren’t academically isolated and that they have access to the people and resources they need to push through the challenging times.

And make no mistake, this is one of those challenging times.

Award-winning student support online

Allow us to pat ourselves on the back for a second, but only because it means good things for you: People who learn online at Oregon State receive the highest level of student support.

The Quality Matters organization – the nation’s leading evaluator of high-quality online teaching and learning experiences – recently honored OSU Ecampus because, in its words, we provide “all the critical student and academic services needed for learner success and use learner feedback to continuously improve those services.”

This comes via access to OSU Libraries, exam proctoring, online tutoring and additional services. You can also become a part of the larger Oregon State community no matter where you live by joining the Ecampus Learning Community and other student organizations from a distance.
