No – late applications will not be accepted under any circumstances. You may apply for fall 2014 term admittance.
Verify that your documentation is up-to-date (see below).
If your documentation is not up-to-date by November 1 we will not review your application and you will receive a "regrets" notification.
By up-to-date documentation we mean the following. In addition to coursework taken at OSU, we must have records of:
- All transfer coursework
- All college credit earned in high school
- All AP/IB/CLEP test scores
- Fall enrollment at transfer institutions
Prior to November 1, you should:
- Verify that your transcripts are up-to-date.
To verify whether or not your OSU transcript is complete, review your OSU Advance Standing Report and Student Academic Transcript at OSU Online Student Services: http://oregonstate.edu/students/onlineservices/ .
If your transcript is not complete, please upload a copy of your (unofficial) transcripts/test scores through the COE Online Application System. These documents need to be uploaded in PDF format and must be "screen prints" from an institutional website similar to the OSU online student services website. Your application will not be reviewed and you will receive a "regrets" notification if coursework, including Fall term, is not available online or in an attached PDF. Please make sure that you also have official copies of transcript data sent to the OSU Admissions office if you do not see it in OSU Online Student Services.
- Apply to OSU if you are not a current OSU student.
If you are not yet admitted to OSU, you must apply and be admitted. We will not review your application if you are not admitted to OSU for Winter term prior to November 1.
By November 1, you must upload a PDF of your Fall term schedule (non-OSU coursework) into the COE Online Application System if you wish to have your Fall term coursework considered in the professional program application review process. These documents need to be uploaded in PDF format and must be "screen prints" from the institutional website where you will be taking the coursework. Your advisor will have access to your OSU fall coursework, so an upload is not required..
NOTE: We will assume a "C" grade in any course that you are completing or repeating fall term when computing your admission "pre-core" GPA.
Your admission decision will be made based solely on documentation in the COE Online Application System, so please make sure it is complete.
The following decisions are possible:
Admit –if you have completed all pre-core coursework, have met other requirements for admission to the professional program, and have an academic record that qualifies you for admission.
Regrets– if you cannot qualify for admission to the professional program based on your academic record, the remaining Fall term coursework that you communicated to your program Head Advisor in the COE Online Application System, or if your documentation is not complete as of November 1.
If you are admitted, you will be able to register for Winter term pro-coursework by December 31.
If you are a transfer student who has never attended OSU, you must first attend a START orientation session on January 3, 2014. You will receive your registration PIN during START.
"Capacity Restricted Programs" have more demand than they can meet given available resources. "Capacity Restricted Programs" have admission pre-core GPA requirements above the minimum 2.25 pre-core GPA.
Admission to these programs is determined by rank ordering all applicants by pre-core GPA. The "capacity restricted admission GPA" is determined based on available resources. Students with pre-core GPA above the capacity restricted admission GPA may be offered admission dependent upon available capacity after the Fall, 2013 admission cycle. The College of Engineering will assume a "C" grade when computing pre-core GPA for any coursework being completed Fall term.
Please note that the information provided below from the most recent admission cycle is for informational purposes only and should not be used as an indicator of the programs that will be capacity constrained in the future or the required GPA for future Pro-School admission. First-year and sophomore level enrollments have increased significantly in the recent past and this trend will likely result in higher demand in all programs and higher admission GPAs. If you have questions, please contact your advisor.
There will be capacity for all qualified students in programs that are not capacity restricted. Programs that are not at program capacity typically have a Winter admission cycle. There may also be capacity for students who identified (or identify) those programs as second choices.
Complete all of your pre-core coursework as early as possible.
Since we use the grade following the slash "I/grade" for OSU incompletes, you may wish to complete any incompletes you may have.
As noted for transfer students, please upload in PDF format to the COE Online Application System any coursework that you do not see in Online Student Services http://oregonstate.edu/students/onlineservices/ Contact your program Head Advisor directly if you have any questions about what may be needed PRIOR to November 1.
If you were rejected from a capacity-restricted program you may be eligible to apply to other majors within the College of Engineering. Contact your program Head Advisor to discuss possible options.
Please note that first choice majors have priority in the admission process. Please consider a second choice major that is not in a capacity restricted program.
Your primary major is considered your "1st choice" major. You also have the option of selecting a "2nd choice" major. You should ONLY select a 2nd choice major if you have already discussed this option with your academic advisor. If you are not selected for your 1st choice major you will be considered for your 2nd choice major. Please do not select a 2nd choice major unless you have (1) met the the pre-core requirements and junior prerequisite requirements for the 2nd choice major, and (2) intend to continue in your 2nd choice major until graduation.
