The Office of International Services has a team dedicated to supporting the success of international sponsored students at Oregon State University. Our sponsored student team assists sponsoring organizations, sponsored students, and campus departments that host these students. Our team emphasizes personalized service and efficiency to address needs related to sponsorship in the areas of admissions, finances, immigration, and academics.


Who is a Sponsored Student?

A Sponsored Student is any student with a scholarship from their home university, home embassy, a company, or a U.S. government agency. The Sponsored Student team assists both international and domestic sponsored students. A Third-Party Billing agreement is established between OSU and the sponsoring agency. Sponsors provide each student with a financial guarantee letter indicating the educational costs for which they will pay the university. OSU invoices sponsors directly for these costs.
