- PhD Program
Satisfaction of minimum entrance requirements does not guarantee admission, since the number of qualified applicants may far exceed the number of places available. As a consequence, many well-qualified applicants may not be accommodated.
General graduate admission standards for international students are available at: Graduate School Admissions Information; for specific country requirements also see: http://oregonstate.edu/admissions/international/requirements.html#country_requirements
All international applicants must meet minimum requirements as detailed above.
For calculation of U.S. equivalent grades, see: http://www.wes.org/gradeconversionguide/index.asp
Please note that the Public Policy PhD Program does not consider Conditional Admission for international students who do not meet the minimum OSU TOEFL scores or that is below a combined 90. IELTS scores must be 7.0 or higher for consideration of admission to the PhD.
Application forms required for admission are available on the OSU Graduate School website.
All applications for the PhD in Public Policy at Oregon State University must be complete by February 15 for full consideration for a Graduate Assistantship (for Fall Quarter admission only).
For students who want to be considered for a Provost's Fellowship or Scholarship, the application deadline is January 20 for Fall Quarter admission.
