The Oregon State University Pledge: Stay on track to graduate

OSU assured that all undergraduate and graduate OSU students on an approved pathway to complete their graduation requirements by the end of spring 2020 or summer 2020 terms, and whose graduation was impeded by OSU’s COVID-19 instructional delivery changes, received a scholarship for up to 8 credit hours to cover the additional tuition needed to complete their remaining credits in a subsequent term. The OSU Pledge supported spring and summer graduation candidates; the program is now closed.

Students who were on track to graduate by the end of spring or summer term 2020 and whose graduation was impeded by Oregon State’s COVID-19 response received academic support, such as finding equivalent courses for substitution or a scholarship to cover tuition for up to 8 remaining credits in a subsequent term, to complete degree requirements.

The Office of the Registrar and college and academic advisors evaluated students’ academic progress for those whose expected graduation in spring 2020 or summer 2020 may have been impacted by OSU’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Those students were considered for support for up to 8 credits of coursework required for spring or summer graduation.
