Frequently asked questions

What is the EdAssist tuition benefit?

The EdAssist tuition benefit is a scholarship equal to 10% of Oregon State’s tuition for all courses taken online by OSU Ecampus-coded students.

Am I eligible for this program?

All EdAssist client employees who are OSU Ecampus-coded are eligible to participate in this tuition benefit program. You should submit a tuition assistance application with EdAssist at least six weeks prior to the start of your first term, as we cannot award scholarships retroactively.

When can I start?

Oregon State is on a quarter-based calendar, which means we offer classes online in fall, winter, spring and summer. You can begin taking classes online in any season.

Will my credits transfer?

Oregon State accepts credits from other institutionally accredited colleges or universities. Your previous coursework will be officially evaluated for transfer upon admission.

What’s it like to be an online student?

Oregon State is ranked one of the nation’s best online universities because our online programs and courses are highly engaging and rigorous. Preview the online learning experience.

What is FAFSA?

For degree-seeking students, it’s a good idea to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which gives you access to the largest source of financial aid to pay for college. It’s not a requirement that you use this financial aid award.

How will I be reimbursed?

The 10% tuition scholarship will be deducted from your bill each term. Connect with your employer about any possible additional tuition benefits.

What if I stop working for an EdAssist client employer?

Only EdAssist client employees are eligible for this scholarship. If you stop working for an EdAssist client, your status as an OSU student won’t be affected, but you’ll no longer receive the scholarship extended to EdAssist client members.

How do I apply to Oregon State?

Before applying, we suggest you speak with an Ecampus enrollment specialist to learn more about the university, financial aid, etc. Call 800-667-1465 or email ecampus@oregonstate.edu.

When will my scholarship be applied to my student account?

Once your verification has been approved and you register for classes, the tuition scholarship will be applied to your student account after week 4 of each academic term.

What happens if I enroll in an Ecampus course after my scholarship has been awarded?

If you successfully petition for a late change of registration (after week 4 of the term) and either add an Ecampus course or switch sections of a currently enrolled course to an Ecampus section, please contact ecampus.ess@oregonstate.edu. We will take steps to adjust your scholarship amount accordingly.
