Undergraduate certificates

Who can enroll in an OSU minor or undergraduate certificate?

Anyone enrolled in an Oregon State bachelor's program can enroll in any Ecampus online minor or undergraduate certificate. If you already have a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution, you may be granted a subsequent minor or undergraduate certificate by applying to OSU as a postbaccalaureate student and indicating your program of interest on the application's statement of objectives.


Is a minor the same as an associate's degree?

No, they are different. An associate's degree is typically awarded by a community college, junior college or a technical college. A minor, however, signifies an additional field of study on top of your undergraduate major in a specific area, and it includes upper-level college courses within that area.
