Freshman Admissions

First-Year Students, Getting Started

Oregon Tech welcomes first-year students from Oregon, the country, and internationally! First-year students are defined as high school graduates or GED (General Education Diploma) recipients who have not been previously enrolled as degree-seeking students at a college or university.

As Oregon's Polytechnic University, our unique, hands-on approach to learning and student engagement will ignite your passion and give you the experience needed to meet your career and life goals. Our students are smart, hard-working, and end up earning the highest starting salaries in the state — average of $60,000 a year — of any college graduates.

Application Deadlines

The first Priority Deadline for students entering in the fall term is November 1 of each year. You can still submit an application after the priority deadline, up until the deadlines listed below. A complete application must be in the Admissions Office by these deadlines.
