OSU GO offers a diverse collection of programs and countries to choose from, allowing you to match an experience to your needs.

Transfer credits

Some degree requirements may be transferred from other institutions. Please note that a minimum of 45 credits of the last 75 credits in this degree program must be completed at Oregon State (online or on campus) to meet the academic residency requirement.

Previously earned credits will need to be reviewed upon admittance to OSU for appropriate articulation. Additional information about transferring credits is available through OSU’s Transfer Credit Central.

Spanish language courses

If you're interested in Spanish language courses rather than a full undergraduate degree, you can take first- through third-year Spanish language courses online through OSU Ecampus.

Add a minor

As an OSU Ecampus student, you can add a minor to your degree program. OSU offers a diverse selection of minors online. Combine Spanish and a business minor or Spanish plus an economics minor to create an even more powerful résumé fit for today's job market.
