Applying for Admission

Oregon Tech makes international admission decisions only after you provide a complete application. An informal review of copies of your transcripts and other documents may be offered in order to advise you about your major or to help determine whether you will be freshman or transfer student status. However, Oregon Tech must have a complete application to offer admission. Conditional offers for admission are made when the only missing application item is proof of English language proficiency.
