Estimated Total Cost of Attendance

The cost of attendance reflects average costs and educational expenses. The cost of attendance helps us to determine your financial aid award but does not reflect the amount you owe the University. You will receive a bill that shows your actual University charges. The standard budget may be adjusted for differential tuition for specific programs, and for students participating in approved study abroad programs. For more information, please view the estimates of costs provided by the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.

Cost Information

The purpose of the Net Price Calculator is to give first-time, full-time students a better idea of what their “estimated” educational cost will be. To calculate what it may cost you, visit the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships’ Net Price Calculator.

Detailed Tuition Tables

Every student at Oregon State University has a student account. Most university financial transactions are processed through the student account. You may find more information on the tuition and fees charged from the E-Campus, Corvallis, and Cascade campuses through Tuition and Fee Information.

Oregon Tuition Equity Bill - HB2787

House Bill 2787 provides that certain students are entitled to exemption from nonresident tuition and fees at public universities. In summary, OSU may grant in-state tuition for undocumented students who have attended school in the country for at least five years; studied at an Oregon high school for at least three years; graduated from an Oregon high school; enroll in university no more than three years from graduating from high school; and show intention to become a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident. For more on the process, take a look at our Tuition Equity page.

Oregon Residency

Oregon State University carefully reviews the residency status of all students at the time of application using the Residency Standards. Only authorized residency officers may apply and interpret these rules and procedures. No other indication or determination of residency by any other institutional office, department, program, or staff represents the official institutional determination of residency for Oregon State University.

Please visit the undergraduate admissions website to obtain a residency affidavit, learn how to fill one out and to submit it.

Residency affidavits must be submitted to the Office of Admissions by the last day to register for the term for which resident classification is sought, which is always the Friday of the first week of the term (see below for specific dates).
