Student studying at Oregon State University

Where to begin

Undergraduate applicants

Refer to the main Oregon State University admissions standards and process


Graduate applicants

Begin gathering the necessary materials to complete an application to the Oregon State University Graduate School. The selected Department application automatically follows the general graduate school application. 

 Prospective graduate students in addition to meeting the minimum requirements of the Graduate School should:

      • Submit a statement of purpose 
      • Include three letters of reference (current NSE students are exempt from this requirement unless applying to the Oregon Medical Physics Program)
      • Provide recent GRE standard test scores (within the past 5 years is considered recent)
      • Supply an official transcript from every institution attended 

Your application must be complete by February 1 of each year if you wish to be considered for TA/RA positions within the department. Ecampus applicants are not eligible for TA/RA support. The final application deadline for those not seeking department support is August 1 of each year.
