Just a heads up in case you didn’t see it Beavs! The MyOSU portal will be officially retired on Monday, October 12, and be replaced with MyOregonState.

If you have feedback or need help with navigating the MyOregonState Dashboard, be sure to let them know here. Be sure to update your bookmarks!

Oregon Health Plan Enrollment Event
Now more than ever, it is critical for students to have adequate and affordable health coverage that meets their needs. If you don’t have any health coverage, health coverage is too expensive for you, or if you are covered by your parent’s insurance but are still struggling with medical costs, you may qualify for the Oregon Health Plan (OHP), even if you already have private insurance. If you have a child under age 18, they can be covered through Oregon Health Plan (OHP) regardless of immigration status, and they may qualify for free health coverage either as primary or secondary coverage. Check to see the eligibility requirements here. From October 12-16 with 2 sessions a day at 10:00 am and 12:00 pm, the HSRC and the Benton County Health Department will be hosting a virtual OHP enrollment event. At the event, OHP certified community partners will be assisting you and your family with the enrollment processes for free and will be available for any other questions you may have. Registration is required and you can check out the event Facebook page for more information. Stay healthy Beavs!
