Visiting International Student Program

The Visiting International Student Program (VISP) allows you to take OSU credit-bearing courses in various departments at Oregon State University including liberal arts, business, engineering, public policy and the sciences.

The VISP is designed for students who want one or more terms of study abroad experience at a top US university. The program provides you with a classic American university experience while taking a variety of credit-bearing classes. You will have access to all the support services available at the university and INTO OSU, including exceptional one-on-one tutoring, social and cultural trips and more. Intensive English courses are available but are not a mandatory part of the program.

Courses taken are transferrable in accordance with articulation policies of your home university. All courses taken as part of the VISP are credit-bearing (except intensive English courses, if selected). You should coordinate with your home university to ensure courses taken through VISP are transferrable to their degree.
