At the Higher Education Center, we provide the services that our Medford students say they value most. We focus on supporting your academic success with advising, testing, help connect you with financial aid. Hours are geared toward your busy schedule.


Keep on target, moving toward graduation with the classes you need at the time you need them. Meeting with an academic advisor helps you achieve that goal. Your major advisor is your keystone, but don’t wait! Especially for those transferring in credit from other schools, a general advising appointment even before your first term helps focus your efforts. Create your own path through University Studies requirements, and avoid surprises later.  Go to to find the Student Success Coordinators in each major. 

If you have questions about transferring to SOU, please call 541-552-8107 to schedule an appointment in Medford. 


From placement testing as you first enter SOU, to CLEP exams to test out of requirements, to proctoring exams for your online classes, the SOU Testing Center at the Higher Education Center provides a convenient access point for many SOU students.
