EOP offers smaller sections of several courses that are required across majors, including courses in math and writing. These classes are small enough that students will get to know their instructors and classmates while completing college requirements, preparing for courses in their major, and building academic skills in a comfortable environment. Smaller classes invite students to interact more with instructors, build community with classmates, and actively participate in their learning. Our course offerings are listed below, and for more information on course availability, talk to an EOP academic counselor or view the Oregon State Academic Catalog.

Note, an asterisk (*) indicates a course meets credits that count toward the Baccalaureate Core Curriculum requirements.
