The Office of Financial Aid provides an estimate of full time educational costs for attending Oregon State University for the standard academic year. 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 billable 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 costs for the coming academic year.  Actual costs may vary based on personal circumstances.

OSU does participate in the Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE).  The benefit is awarded competitively to a limited number of qualifying students as a scholarship. Non-resident tuition at OSU is not reduced based on state of residence. Students awarded a WUE scholarship will be notified by the Scholarship Office and will see the estimated scholarship amount on their award letter.

Cost of Attendance Components: 

Billable Cost

  • 1Tuition and Fees: Estimated Tuition and Fees are based on 15 credits/term undergraduate or 10 credits/term graduate for three (3) terms, or one regular academic year. Tuition and fees can vary based on program of study, number of credits enrolled, residency status, and degree level. Actual tuition rates are pending approval by the board of trustees and approved by the Higher Education Coordinating Commission in July. More detailed information on tuition and fee charges may be found on the Business Affairs webpages.
  • 2Room and Board: This amount is an average figure for both on-campus and off-campus living arrangements, but students are only directly billed by OSU if living on-campus. Lower cost options may also be available that can save a student up to several thousand dollars per year compared to the average (significant amounts of on-campus options are less than $9000/year). Actual cost amounts will vary based on a student’s choices on where to live and other related expenses.

Non-Billable Cost

  • Books and Supplies: This is an average amount you might spend on books and supplies. You are not billed by OSU for these expenses.
  • Transportation Cost: This is an estimate of what you might spend during the school year on transportation.
  • Personal and Miscellaneous: This is an estimate of what you might spend during the school year on personal items, clothing, recreation and travel.
  • Loan Fee Allowance: An average amount is built in for loan recipients to cover the Federal Ford Direct Loan fees. COA shown does not include loan fee allowance.
