B.S. in Botany – Online

See how your previous credits may transfer

Prior to applying to Oregon State's botany online bachelor's program, you have access to a free, unofficial transcript evaluation. You’ll work one-on-one with the OSU Ecampus enrollment services staff to understand how your previously earned credits may transfer to Oregon State.

How to access this service

To access this free service, complete our Ecampus Request for an Unofficial Transcript Evaluation form:

Request evaluation

Please have your transcript(s) available from each previously attended institution.

Once we receive the information needed to complete the evaluation, you’ll receive your report within approximately 10 business days. During high-volume times, it may take up to four weeks to complete this evaluation.

Please note: Currently, we are unable to review transcripts from institutions outside of the United States.

What are the benefits of an unofficial transcript evaluation?

  • You’ll have a clear picture of how your credits from previous institution(s) may transfer to Oregon State. This can save you time and money by ensuring you’re not repeating courses.
  • An unofficial transcript evaluation can help you identify any academic issues you may have, such as how to increase your transfer GPA, and let you know if you meet Oregon State’s admission requirements.
  • You’ll receive an opportunity to schedule an appointment with an Ecampus transcript evaluator to review your report and talk about your next moves.
