Applications are processed and evaluated on a rolling basis with no deadline for Undergraduate Admission. We encourage students to apply early (prior to February 1) as financial aid packaging and opportunity for selection of classes can be improved. Applicants will continue to be admitted to the university throughout the year. Apply now!

The Admission Process


Your application for admission to the University is a simple process:


  • Meet our general admission requirements (as stated above).


  • Submit an application and the $50 non-refundable application fee to the Office of Admissions.
    If you qualify, you may defer the application fee (you would not have to pay it until you actually enroll for classes). To see if you qualify check out the Deferral Form (PDF) used by the Oregon University System. The deferral option is for qualified U.S. citizens only.


  • Have your college(s) send us an official copy of your transcripts. Applicants must provide official transcripts from each college, community college or university attended.
