Oregon State University is located in Corvallis, Oregon. On its "Undergraduate Programs" web page, the school doesn't indicate that a certain GPA guarantees admission. However, it does state that 3.0 GPA is the minimum needed for full admission. International students can enter the school's "Pathways" program in some cases with a GPA under 3.0. This program allows students to complete freshman level requirements while study English intensively and proving their merit for full admission as a sophomore.
International students need at least a 2.5 GPA and transfer students from the U.S. must have at least a 2.25 cumulative college GPA. Certain test scores can lead to a waiver of English-language course work for international students. A 21 or higher on the ACT English test suffices, for instance.
