Term Extension – Online

A new option to help students thrive

As part of our continual efforts to support students’ road to a timely graduation through innovative course offerings, Oregon State Ecampus and our faculty partners launched a two-week term (term extension) for online courses. These innovative course offerings are designed for students who learn online with OSU Ecampus and on campus in Corvallis.

"The curriculum of both the career development course and online success were top-notch. These two classes in particular focused on personal enrichment. During this very short period of time I learned so much about myself: how I learn, what I most value, where my resources are and how to best utilize them. The list goes on."
