The Office of Financial Aid provides an estimate of full time educational costs for attending Oregon State University. Tuition costs for students vary depending on their residency status, course of study and degree level. Room and Board budgets vary for students that live on campus, off campus, or are considered commuters from home. Actual expenses will vary based on a student’s personal choices and course of study. Costs noted below are standard financial aid budget items and represent an estimate of what students can anticipate spending for tuition and fees, books and supplies, room and board, and personal and miscellaneous expenses. Only actual direct costs will appear on the student’s billing account.

Please Note: Cost of Attendance figures are used for budgeting purposes only and represent an estimate of projected tuition and fees for the coming academic year. These budgets represent full time tuition (15 credits/term undergraduate, 9 credits/term graduate) for three (3) terms, or one regular academic year.

The numbers below are only an estimate for 17/18 tuition and fees. Actual tuition rates are pending approval by the board of trustees and approved by the Higher Education Coordinating Commission in July and may vary based on program of study.
