Considering Oregon State?

Excellent! We love talking with potential Beavers about major exploration. If you were planning to visit OSU, but now can't because of COVID-19 restrictions, we are still available to meet virtually or by phone. We will gladly set up a video chat or phone conversation with one of our advisors. Just call 541-737-8144 or email uesp.advisor@oregonstate.edu, and we'll help you set up a conversation at a time that works for you. 

You can also learn more about OSU options using the information on our Approaches to Exploration page.

Admitted to OSU?

Congratulations! Many, many students have started their OSU journey with University Exploratory Studies Program. Know that starting as exploratory will give you the opportunity to consider your options and find the best match before you declare.  All new students to OSU need to go through orientation prior to their first term at OSU. In the summer 2020, START orientation for students starting in the fall will be done virtually.  More information on this is coming soon!
