International Postbaccalaureate Students

You should apply for admission as an international student if you are not a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident of the United States. U.S. citizens and permanent residents should complete the domestic application for admission.

If you already have an undergraduate degree and want to earn a second undergraduate degree or take only undergraduate level coursework at the UO, you may apply for admission as a postbaccalaureate undergraduate student.

If your requested major is in business administration, communication disorders and sciences, fine and applied arts, or music, your admission is subject to department approval.
