Tuition information

Similarly, Ecampus courses will count toward full-time enrollment status for graduate scholarships, fellowships and scholarship/fellowship tuition relief programs.

Ecampus courses are totally supported by tuition and fee revenue.
Tuition and fees for Ecampus courses are set at levels necessary to cover the direct costs of providing the courses.

Please note enrollment requirements for Graduate Assistants for summer term 2018.

Other fees

Advance tuition deposit (ATD)

To confirm your intent to enroll as an undergraduate degree-seeking student with Oregon State Ecampus, you must submit the advance tuition deposit (ATD) form along with your $200 deposit as this allows us to create your student account.

Remember (Fall Term Only): Payment for your Advance Tuition Deposit is required of all undergraduate degree-seeking students. This will allow you to register for fall term classes. As of May 1 your deposit is nonrefundable.

For all other terms, the ATD is refundable up to three weeks before the start of the term.

If you are a transfer student, paying your ATD will trigger a transcript evaluation by the Office of Admissions.

For Degree Partnership Program (DPP) students: Payment for your Advance Tuition Deposit is required once you have been admitted. Your status will remain active provided you enroll in a class at OSU within the next 10 terms. The deposit will be applied to your OSU account in the term of registration.

Postbaccalaureate students are exempt from the Advance Tuition Deposit (ATD) requirement. 

Learn more about the advance tuition deposit and how to submit your payment.
