Preparing for fall term

The university’s COVID-19 Safety and Success website and this video offer details on what OSU will look like this fall. Watch for additional information on other operations in coming days.

You have a choice. To the greatest extent practicable, we are providing students with the ability to decide the location that works best for them to pursue their OSU studies. If a student feels safest living at home or off-campus and taking OSU courses remotely, almost all of our instruction will support that choice. If they choose to live on campus while they pursue their studies (mostly remotely and online), they are welcome at OSU. Over 90 percent of OSU Corvallis course sections will be offered remotely.

The OSU Schedule of Classes lists the instructional modality or format for each course: on-site/in-person, remote, a blend of on-site/in-person and remote, and online through Ecampus. Regardless of instructional modality, courses will be compelling and engaging, supporting students in achieving their academic goals.

Resources for you

If you or anyone you know who is a College of Science student is experiencing financial hardships related to COVID-19, please reach out to us through our Equity Promise Scholarship form so that we can find ways to help support you or them.

We also invite you to explore the many resources available to students within the College of Science, as well as resources the university provides for the student body as a whole.
