Oregon State Everywhere: Embracing change and challenges

“After intense research on which institution to attend, Oregon State became the clear choice due to its rich course selection, excellent faculty and overwhelming positive reception by former students. The guidance of instructors and advisors kept my studies on track and my drive focused in the right areas. Learning online was perfect for me.” – Jeffery Tobin, political science graduate

Oregon State military ambassadors can help you earn your degree online

Earning a degree online while in the military presents challenges that few people understand. We can’t tell you about an experience that we haven’t lived ourselves, but we can put you in touch with military service members, veterans and spouses who have. That’s why we created the Oregon State Ecampus military ambassadors program.

Oregon State’s Class of 2020 features 1,128 students who earned degrees online

On her first day as an OSU Ecampus student in 2013, Cheryl Jobs sat down at a Starbucks in the New York metro area, opened her laptop, and she got to work. “I remember feeling excited,” she recalls now. “The material had me hooked from day one.” Seven years later, Jobs is one of the 1,128 members of the Ecampus Class of 2020 who earned their degrees online.

People used to ask Hope Nelson how she learned to speak German. Hope says her answer didn’t seem adequate. She taught herself using textbooks and audio tools in high school before living in Germany for a year as an exchange student. But now she is proud to have a German bachelor’s degree from Oregon State University Ecampus as proof.

Toby Long looks off in the distance. As a way to move up at work, Toby earned his business administration bachelor's degree online through Oregon State University Ecampus in 2019.

Learning how to move up at work and get an education

Not long ago, Toby Long constantly found himself trying to schedule work around his school schedule. He loved his job at Dutch Bros, and he wanted to move into a management position, but when it came to attending college on-campus in Sacramento, he just couldn’t get the flexibility he needed to keep moving forward at work. Then Toby found Oregon State Ecampus and its online bachelor’s degree in business administration.

For Caitlin Brooks, furthering her education enabled her to launch her own fitness apparel business. But her journey to reaching that point wasn’t easy given her full-time job and the other challenges she encountered. The quality, support and flexibility offered online by OSU Ecampus became essential to her success.

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

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

Here’s one of the biggest misconceptions about learning online: Students have to learn all by themselves, with little support from the university community. At Oregon State, the faculty who develop and teach classes online are experts at creating innovative ways for students to interact with classmates, instructors and the course content. And that enriching online learning environment is accompanied by a robust support system for OSU Ecampus students.

OSU Ecampus puts student success first

Our students connect regularly with a strong community of classmates, instructors and on-campus support staff – because at OSU Ecampus, we put student success at the forefront of all we do. We provide access to resources like social groups, online forums and one-on-one conversations because those connections do more than just facilitate course projects. They establish a sense of belonging for students.
