Oregon State University may engage in the direct sale of goods and services to individuals,
groups, or external customers for fees only when those services or goods are directly
and substantially related to the mission of the university which includes teaching,
research, and public service.
The consolidated institutional fee process includes:
- External fees – charged to external (non-OSU) entities for goods or services in
exchange for cash receipts.
- Internal fees – charged via journal voucher to OSU departments for goods or services. May include grants or contracts.
- Course fees – assessed to students for specific, tangible goods or services received
in conjunction with taking a specific class.
Use the navigation links on the left to view and/or search each of these fee types. This
site is also designed to help units create and/or submit online proposals which add new
fees or review, change, or drop existing fees (note: course fees need to be “dropped” by
the system administrator). Only an authorized user or originator may access the secure
portion of the system.
To obtain originator access, you must first pass the Originator Security Test. Register
for the test through Professional Development.
Once logged into the Professional Development site, select course listings on the left
then Business Affairs from the Category drop-down list. Click on the Register link under
OSU Fees Online – Originator Security Test. The open book test is delivered through
Canvas; you will receive instructions on accessing the test once registration is complete.
Additional information about University Fees or using the OSU Fees Online website can be
found through the Fee Criteria link on the left. For further help, contact the
Financial Accounting Manager in your Business Center or Charlotte Rooks in
