You should apply for admission as an international student if you are not a United States citizen or a permanent resident of the United States. U.S. citizens and permanent residents should complete the domestic application for admission.
Transfer Admission Requirements
- Academic requirements
For transfer level admission to the University of Oregon (UO), you must have completed 36 university term credits (24 semester credits) with a B-/C+ average or a 2.50 grade point average (GPA) on a 4.00 scale. If you have fewer than 36 university term credits (24 semester credits) you must meet the 2.50 GPA transfer requirement and the freshman admission requirements.
Official transcripts are required if you have attended any college, university, technical school, or other institution.
- English Proficiency
If your native language is not English, you must submit results of a standardized language test. Please review test score requirements before applying.
- Conditional admission
The University of Oregon may offer conditional admission to international undergraduate students who have not yet reached the required level of English language proficiency. If you are conditionally admitted, you will attend the American English Institute (AEI) to study English in an intensive environment. Upon successful completion of the highest level of English instruction at the AEI, you will be granted full admission to the University of Oregon. While studying at the AEI, you may also submit a valid passing TOEFL score to be considered for full admission to the University of Oregon. A passing TOEFL or IELTS score submitted while enrolled at AEI does not guarantee full admission.
- Demonstrating financial resources
According to U.S. government regulations, all applicants who must obtain a student visa to study in the U.S. must demonstrate that they have sufficient funds to pay for tuition costs and living expenses while at the UO. As proof of your financial resources, you must send a bank statement or a certificate of balance prepared within the last six months or a scholarship letter with your application.
- Personal statements and letters of recommendation (optional)
You may send a personal statement with your application to explain special circumstances in your life that have affected you or your education. Letters of recommendation are not required for admission to the UO as an undergraduate but can be included in support of a student’s application for admission.
