1. Use advising resources

It is very important to make sure the classes you take at your partner school will transfer and count towards your OSU degree. Here are some ways to do that.

  • MyDegrees:  Web-based degree checklist program and academic advising tool designed to assist students and advisors in reviewing degree progress. It organizes a student's academic transcript chronologically and categorically, identifying courses they have completed and courses still needed to fulfill the degree requirements.
  • Learn what your OSU courses are called at your community college by using our articulation tables.
  • Learn which Baccalaureate Core courses are available at your community college by using our Baccalaureate Core   Equivalency Guide.
  • Connect with an advisor if you have not done so to be sure that the courses you take at the community college are counting towards your OSU degree!

2. Apply for financial aid every year

Make sure you fill out your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and/or complete the Oregon Student Aid Application (ORSAA), available for Oregonian undocumented students. Both applications are available annually in October and you should complete them as soon as you can for maximum financial aid consideration.
