LBCC + Oregon State University

OSU New Student Orientations

If you are a current or new Degree Partnership Program (DPP) student and plan on taking classes at OSU for the first time, you will be required to attend an OSU orientation session. Throughout the summer, there will be both First Year and Transfer STARTS for students beginning at OSU in the fall. Check out OSU's New Student Programs website for more information and schedule of dates. Between terms there are also orientation sessions available if you are planning to start winter or spring terms at OSU.

At orientation you will learn about valuable resources available to you at OSU, receive academic advising, and register for OSU classes. Linn-Benton DPP will also be on OSU's campus to help students register for LBCC classes and answer questions. If you have any questions regarding orientation registration, please contact the New Student Programs & Family Outreach office directly at (541) 737-7627.

If you are taking all of your classes at LB, sign up for an NSS.  If you are taking anything at OSU, sign up for a START.  Not necessary to attend both.

You do not need to take placement testing at both schools.  Automatically in WR121, take OSU's math placement test for START or can take our math placement test for an NSS.
