Starting fall term of the 2016-2017 academic year, Oregon State Ecampus will provide financial assistance to currently serving military members who entered the service while they were residents of Oregon and who are using military tuition assistance to help pay for their online classes.
The assistance OSU Ecampus will provide will allow service members to take up to 4 credits per term, at the undergraduate or graduate level, at no additional cost above what the military tuition assistance program will pay. This award is in addition to your other military education benefits.

The Veterans Dependent Tuition Program may now be used by eligible students for online courses and on campus courses offered by OSU, OSU-Cascades, and OSU Ecampus.
Traditionally this benefit was for courses taken on campus only.
The Veterans Dependent Tuition Program provides Oregon residents a full tuition waiver (not fees) for a bachelor’s or master’s degree for a child or spouse of a member of the United States Armed Forces who either died in active duty, became 100% disabled in connection with military service, or died as a result of a disability sustained in active duty. Or the student must be a child (including adopted child or stepchild) of a Purple Heart recipient, alive or deceased, who was relieved or discharged from service in the Armed Forces of the United States with either an honorable discharge or a general discharge under honorable conditions and was awarded the Purple Heart in 2001 or thereafter for wounds received in combat.
The benefit still does not apply to study abroad programs.

6pm-8pm, November 11, 2015, an OSU-OPB town hall on Veteran’s Day at the Deschutes Brewery Mountain Room (901 SW Simpson St. Bend, OR) *a collaboration of OSU, as part of the Citizenship and Crisis Initiative, with OPB’s Think Out Loud, hosted by Dave Miller. The format is to have panel discussion with audience participation. This event was shaped by scholars, teachers, staff, and students at OSU. It is not a “media” event and there is no political agenda. We are just sharing information and perspectives.
There will be free food and a cash bar. The event will be audio taped and edited to air on OPB radio on Think Out Loud at noon on November 12.
Please see attached poster and here is our Facebook link: https://www.facebook.com/events/129934820692576/
We plan to have scholars, veterans, counselors, activists, and others involved, and this is likely to be covered by the media as well. We did one of these OSU-OPB collaborative town halls in Corvallis in February and it reached tens of thousands via radio and had a terrific audience and impact.
