New Zealand

The University of Oregon uses a holistic review process when making our admissions decisions. Though academic performance is important, we also consider strength of curriculum, English proficiency, grade trend, and other factors.

Freshman admission

For admission consideration, students from the New Zealand education system should have an average high school academic performance of at least B, a 4 on the 9-point scale, or an M (Merit) on the National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA) scale. If your secondary school uses a different grading scale, please contact us.

Students from New Zealand whose first language is English are not required to prove English proficiency. Students whose first language is not English are required to meet University of Oregon’s minimum English proficiency requirements for admission.
