More Information About Assessment Funds
Assessment is supported by a $1.30/credit hour fee paid by OSU undergraduate and graduate students.* Assessment fees are used to implement a broad range of assessment programs on campus, including assessment of entering freshmen and transfer students, general education assessment, assessment of student and alumni satisfaction, program outcomes assessment, and a broad range of special assessment projects aimed at providing useful information for continuous quality improvement in student programs.
Assessment funds are distributed through the Office of University Assessment under the direction of the Assessment and Academic Improvement Council and the Division of Academic Affairs.
Assessment funds are allocated based on the Assessment and Academic Improvement Council's guidelines for appropriate uses of assessment fee money. Program enrollment is also considered in the allocation of funds so that programs with larger student enrollments are eligible for more assessment funds than those with smaller enrollments.
Carry Forward Balances in Assessment Accounts
Funds in assessment accounts are provided for the current fiscal year only. Unused funds will be recovered by the Office of University Assessment for use in other assessment projects. If a project will not be fully completed by the end of the fiscal year (July 1st), recipients must send a request for an extension in writing to the Director of University Assessment and Testing at email@example.com for approval.
