The benefits of learning online with Oregon State University are abundant, so much so that it can be hard to keep track of them all.

Here’s a trick to memorize them: Think of the word same.

Oregon State Ecampus students earn the same diploma as OSU’s campus-based students.

All Ecampus online classes are developed by the same renowned Oregon State faculty who teach on campus.

The learning outcomes in Ecampus courses are the same as those in face-to-face classes.

And no matter where you live in the United States, you’ll pay the same tuition rate for every Ecampus course you take online.

That final benefit is a game-changer for many people. Our Ecampus students and graduates often share that the uniform tuition rate for people who live in Oregon and elsewhere contributed to their decision to enroll online with Oregon State.

Here is what a collection of Ecampus alumni said on the matter.

   I knew I wanted to pursue a degree in economics, and OSU was the highest-ranked university that offered a fully online B.S. in Economics. Once I factored in the curriculum and the in-state tuition for online students, there was no place else I wanted to apply.

   When I researched OSU’s incredible online opportunities, I applied within a few weeks. It was a big change and decision, but my family and I are so thankful we did it. A lot of prayers and thinking went into the decision, but once we saw we could afford the Ecampus tuition and that I could take everything 100% online, I knew it was the best decision.

   I finally reached the point in my academic career where I could not take any more courses at the community college. However, I also could not afford to stop working to go to a four-year college on campus. I did some digging, and Oregon State fit the bill. Not only could I finish my degree with a reputable and academically robust institution, but the tuition rate for Ecampus courses made the cost less prohibitive than many other universities.

   I chose to enroll online with Oregon State Ecampus for financial, academic and practical reasons. The tuition was a solid middle ground between out-of-state and in-state tuition and fees. I had just moved to Ohio at the time, and I did not want to wait for two years before I was considered an in-state student before being able to work on my education if I decided to go a school in that state.
