SOU has “rolling admissions” meaning you may apply and be admitted anytime throughout the year. We ask for two to four weeks to guarantee a thorough review of your application. Our priority application deadline for fall term is February 15th.
Step 1: Apply Online
You can pay the $60 application fee through our online application, or, if you are eligible, you may defer your application fee. This form can be brought into the Office of Admissions, mailed to the address listed below or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 2: Submit Required Documents
- Official transcripts from all previously attended institutions
Transcripts are considered official if they arrive in an unopened, sealed envelope from your institution.
- If you satisfied the Second Language Requirement in high school, submit your official high school transcripts showing completion of this requirement.
- All documents should be submitted to: Southern Oregon University/Office of Admissions 1250 Siskiyou Blvd. Ashland, OR 97520
Step 3: Submit Supporting Documents
To improve your candidacy for admission, you may submit academic letters of recommendation, counselor recommendations, a resume, writing sample, or similar supporting documentation. These documents can be emailed to email@example.com, mailed to the above address, faxed, or brought in to the Office of Admissions.
Step 4: Check Application Status
After submitting your application, you may check online to see if your required documents have been received.
