Current OSU international students may also participate in the Degree Partnership Program (DPP) with two community colleges, Linn-Benton Community College and Portland Community College, which means international students must first be admitted to OSU and be taking classes at OSU in order to participate, as 3 credits must be taken on-campus at OSU each term. 

  • Free to add DPP to your admission status!
  • Lower tuition costs at community colleges (students pay OSU for the courses they take at OSU and the community college for the classes they take at the community college).
  • Increased flexibility in scheduling with access to more classes through the community college, on-site at OSU, and with online courses offered though the OSU Ecampus.
  • Access to libraries, computer labs, and other services on both campuses (subject to an additional fee).
  • Apply for scholarships at OSU and your partner school.
  • Transcripts automatically sent from the partner college to OSU at the end of each term and articulated so you can see how your grades transfer and count towards your degree (MyDegrees).
