Decision Day Extension: September 1, 2020

Applicants for fall 2020 freshman admission now have until September 1 to inform the UO if they will accept our offer of admission. If you are an admitted student, continue to check this website, your email, and postal mail for continuing updates. All admissions events, including campus tours, are postponed until further notice, to comply with Oregon Governor Kate Brown's stay-at-home order. The Office of Admissions has moved to remote operations. Please submit any required documents through Official Electronic submission methods. Have transcripts sent electronically from the issuing institution. Items sent regular postal mail will experience an extended processing delay.
