Teaching & Extension Use Requests

Teaching Use Applications apply to college courses, extension workshops, and K-12 visits.

  • Contact the Associate Director to discuss your interest in using OSBS before submitting a new teaching application.
  • A Project Portal account will need to be established before an application can be started/submitted.
  • Returning courses. When your course application is approved, you will NOT need to resubmit a new application for future visits. Returning instructors can update their teaching use permit for their approved course in the Project Portal with new visit dates, classroom use, resources, and instructor support.
  • Faculty are required to complete an application for student class projects.
