For admitted undergrad students

College of Public Health and Human Sciences

We launched a new site, #BeaverNation, aimed at providing a more interactive experience for admitted students and their families in light of COVID-19 precautions.


Register your ONID account

ONID provides students official OSU email accounts, web server space, and access to CANVAS plus your student portal where you can pay your ATD to notify the Admissions Office that you are attending OSU.

ONID registration is also required to access OSU ScholarDollars to apply for college and departmental scholarship opportunities at OSU.

Pay your Advance Tuition Deposit (ATD)

The ATD applies to all newly admitted students to confirm your enrollment to OSU and is payable online through MyOregonState portal.

We have pushed our confirmation / ATD deadline from May 1 to June 1.

It is our hope that this will help alleviate some anxiety for you and your parents, particularly those of you hoping to visit campus before committing to enroll during this time of COVID-19 precautions.

Apply for financial aid


To be considered for financial aid from federal and state sources, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and list Oregon State University as one of your first six choices, with Federal School Code 003210.

For the best chance of receiving aid, you should submit your FAFSA to the central processor by February 1.

Accepting financial aid

If you submitted your FAFSA, you will receive a Financial Aid Award Offer.

You can accept, reject, or revise your Financial Aid Award through MyOregonState by completing the following steps:

  • Select the Paying for College tab

  • Make your decisions about the aid that you want; and Submit when done

Apply for other scholarship opportunities

Some OSU scholarships, such as those offered by the University Scholars Program, are awarded to newly-admitted students based on the application for admission.

Many colleges and departments also award additional scholarships based on applications submitted through Oregon State’s scholarship search and application system, OSU ScholarDollars.

Newly-admitted students are eligible to apply for these scholarship opportunities through OSU ScholarDollars after they have set up their ONID accounts.
