About Online Learning
Whether you're a working professional, raising a family or serving in the military, Oregon State University Ecampus can meet your needs by providing access to exceptional learning experiences that can transform your life.
All Ecampus degree programs are developed by the same OSU faculty who teach on campus. All online and hybrid courses meet identical learning outcomes as traditional face-to-face classes. And all distance learners earn the same diploma as on-campus students.
That means that an Ecampus education is an authentic Oregon State education. Period.
How are classes delivered?
In partnership with more than 900 Oregon State faculty members, OSU Ecampus delivers programs and courses in online and hybrid formats. Specific details about each Ecampus program’s coursework can be found on our individual program websites.
When an Oregon State degree or certificate program is offered online, that means that all or nearly all of the program’s coursework is delivered online.
In addition to online coursework, some programs or courses may require you to:
- Take proctored exams in your local area
- Visit a local library or bookstore to find a book or other resource
- Conduct field work for a course assignment
- Pursue a program-related internship in your area
- Enroll in a site-based laboratory class
Hybrid (online/in-person) learning
Hybrid courses at Oregon State blend regularly scheduled, face-to-face classroom meetings with significant online coursework and interaction. For students in hybrid programs, the in-person classroom sessions emphasize engaged, active learning while the online components offer guided learning activities and interaction that add flexibility to fit your personal schedule.
Some graduate-level Ecampus programs supplement online coursework by requiring attendance at a site-based location at various times during the academic year such as the OSU Portland Center at Pioneer Square.
