Honoring our veterans


Military friendly

Oregon State University is proud to serve those who serve. The Military and Veteran Resource Office provides support to military service members, veterans and their families studying at Oregon State campuses in Corvallis and Bend, online via Ecampus and at degree partnership locations. We can guide you through the requirements of higher education and make sure you know about all the benefits and services available to help you have a successful learning experience at Oregon State.

Military commissioning programs

For more than a century, military training has been offered at Oregon State. Fulfilling a provision of the Morrill Act of 1862, which gave Corvallis College its first public support, an Army Cadet Corps was organized in 1873. During World War II, Oregon State became known as the West Point of the West for producing more officers than any other non-military academy in the nation.

ROTC at Oregon State is made up of the departments of Military Science, Naval Science and Air Force Studies.
