Oregon State University provides a comprehensive First Year Experience (FYE) for all undergraduate, first-year degree-seeking students. In addition to the services and experiences provided as part of the FYE, OSU offers an additional layer of academic and personal support services to international first-year degree-seeking students, referred to as International Direct (ID). ID services include a personalized study plan with individualized advising and guided registration, additional academic support resources tailored to international student needs, and ongoing personal support from pre-arrival and orientation throughout the first three terms at OSU. International Direct services are provided to students through the INTO OSU Center, in close partnership with other university departments, and are designed to ensure a smooth transition to US higher education and a strong start towards a degree from Oregon State University.

ID services are provided to all students are admitted as Level 01 undergraduate first-year students for the first three consecutive terms at OSU, regardless of start term. The following students are not eligible for International Direct Services: direct transfer, exchange, athletes, post-bacc, Ecampus students, and residents of HSBC banking restricted countries.
