College Application Week: Oregon College Applications

College applications can be short or they can be many pages long. You’ll almost always be asked to provide details about your educational background and plans, and sometimes you’ll be asked to share some information about your parents’ education, too. You might be asked to provide information to prove your residency in Oregon. You may need to submit an activities resume or an essay.

Get links to the application pages for Oregon's colleges and universities in the tables below. If you plan to apply to a school out of state, you'll need to go to their homepage and look for the "Apply Now" or "Admissions" link. Use the College Application Week worksheet to make sure you have information commonly asked.

You may also use the Common Application, which is accepted by over 800 colleges and universities.

We recommend that all students who are applying to college take time to research their options. We especially recommend that students who are considering private, for-profit career or technical schools be diligent as they read about and make decisions about where they will apply.

Application Fees

Many colleges require an application fee at the time you submit your application. Several automatically waive the fee if you apply online, others will accept a deferral or waiver, both of which must be signed by your high school counselor. Download one copy of the fee deferral form for Oregon's public universities or a copy of the NACAC fee waiver that can be used nationwide, for each school to wish you plan to apply.

Undocumented Students in Oregon

Students in Oregon without U.S. citizenship may be eligible for in-state tuition at public universities, low-cost community college (Oregon Promise), and state financial aid (Oregon Opportunity Grant). Learn more and find the necessary paperwork. Also available in Spanish.
