Dear Friends and Families of INTO OSU,

Date: July 15th, 2020


Oregon State University is committed to state, national and global efforts to reduce the risk and spread of COVID-19. INTO OSU is presently following OSU’s detailed Resumption Plan, which aims to resume in-person teaching in late summer and fall term. We have started the process of a phased return to the ILLC.

We are also committed to the health and well-being of our students, staff and faculty at INTO OSU. We are presently following OSU’s Face Covering Requirement which went into effect on June 14, 2020, and have taken measures to accommodate for social distancing and sanitation at the ILLC.

We also are working to help our students, staff and faculty understand these plans as they are updated. We have and will continue to host Open Sessions for our students, staff and faculty to hear updates from INTO OSU directors and ask questions.

We are making every effort to continue to deliver and prioritize INTO OSU’s high standards of student success, student support and the student experience. We are thankful for the commitment, support, care and creative collaboration from our staff, faculty, and students as we have navigated the events thus far. We look forward to the day when we can all be together again.


If you are a student in Academic English, Undergraduate Pathway, Graduate Pathway, Undergraduate Transfer Program, Study Abroad with English or any other special program, and you want to talk to someone, please reach out to your advisor through the Virtual Welcome Desk.
