Going to school far from home is exciting and, at times, intimidating. At the University of Oregon, we work hard to make sure you feel at home.
When you arrive at the UO you'll be among more than 2,500 international students from 95 countries who all have at least one thing in common: the desire to attend a top-notch university known for its academic excellence, located in one of the most beautiful regions of the United States. Whether you study business, education, architecture, journalism, or any of the UO's more than 270 comprehensive academic programs, you'll find course work that stresses an international perspective and prepares students for living as global citizens.
If you'd like to join our global community, follow these steps:
- Learn about our admission requirements for international freshmen, international transfer students, or international postbaccalaureate students. Learn about country-specific admissions requirements before applying.
- Complete the international application. You may also need to complete applications for specific programs, such as music or architecture. A nonrefundable application fee is required.
- Remember the deadlines for international student admission.
- Stay on track using the checklist for international admission.
