Apply as a Degree-Seeking US Resident Student
Degree-seeking students must submit the following items to the Office of Admissions before the deadlines specified on this page (unless noted otherwise on the department page). Please be aware that some departments only take new applicants for fall term. See department page for more information.
- An official admissions application, along with a $50 non-refundable application fee. The application fee is waived for applicants who are currently attending Oregon Tech or who graduated from Oregon Tech within the previous two years.
- Official transcripts from each post-secondary educational institution attended.
Individual programs may have additional requirements. Applicants must submit all required items before admission to the graduate program will be considered. Submitting the items, however, does not ensure admission. Applicants will receive official notification of admission after a review of the application by the Office of Admissions and the graduate program department.
Apply as an International Degree-Seeking Graduate Student
Oregon Tech must assess the academic preparation of international students. For this purpose, international students, including those who hold US visas as student exchange visitors or other non-immigrant classifications, should apply early. Official transcripts must be on file at least eight weeks before registration for the first term and, if not written in English, must be accompanied by a certified English translation.
All international applicants from countries in which English is not the native language must take an approved English language proficiency exam. Since the results of this test constitute part of the material reviewed for admission to graduate studies at Oregon Tech, students should arrange to have their English language proficiency scores sent to the Office of Admissions well before the application deadline.
The following is an application checklist for degree-seeking international students:
- Submit the graduate application for admission with the $50 (US) application fee.
- Official academic transcripts of all university course work sent to Oregon Tech.
- For university course work done outside the USA, transcripts must be reviewed by an evaluation service. A "course-by-course evaluation" or a "detail report" is necessary. View all of the Evaluation companies that Oregon Tech accepts.
- Proof of proficiency in the English language is required. Official test scores on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), the International English Language Testing System exam (IELTS), or the Duolingo English Test are acceptable. A minimum score of 550 paper-based TOEFL, 213 computer-based TOEFL, 68 Internet-based TOEFL, a minimum of 6 on the IELTS, or a minimum of 95 on the Duolingo English Test is required for consideration. This requirement may be waived for some students whose primary language is English. View which countries are exempt.
- Students currently in the United States should submit a photocopy of their current I-20, visa, and passport.
