As a current applicant, you can check if your application is complete on the application status portal. Past applicants, including current UO students, need to use the DuckWeb portal. While the portal will display what we have received from you in most cases, please note that during peak processing times it can take two to four weeks for a document to appear in our system.
What do we need for a complete file? This can vary based your application type and certain other details.
For All Applicants
These are issued directly from a school or college to the University of Oregon Office of Admissions either in a sealed envelope or electronically through approved protocols. Transcripts can be hand-delivered if the seal on the envelope has not been broken.
If your high school sends its official transcripts electronically, their system may indicate that it has been sent and received. However, during peak processing times it can still take time to match your transcript to your application file.
Faxed transcripts, photocopies, or originals received, but not in a sealed, institutional envelope, cannot be considered official.
Students may not begin coursework at the UO until this final transcript, and official record of any other work attempted, is submitted.
If you have completed dual-enrollment or college (post-secondary) work and it is not identified on your high school transcript, we will need a copy of these transcripts before enrolling.
While not preferable, we can also accept scores for consideration when they are part of an official high school transcript Scores must be typed on the transcript, not handwritten/taped on the transcript. Be aware that electronic transcripts do not include test scores. (This option is not available for student athletes being recruited under NCAA guidelines.
International students are still required to submit test scores to prove English proficiency. Scores from the DET, TOEFL, or IELTS must be sent directly from the testing organization. The SAT or ACT can also be used to satisfy these requirements.
- Applicants to the Clark Honors College are required to complete a second required essay. If not submitted as part of the initial application, it can be sent separately to Admissions as a PDF or Word document. Contact Admissions for more details.
- Recommendation letters are not required for any applicants, but are often received and sometimes have proven to be helpful in our decision. Your school counselor might help you with this process; however, if you wish to submit them separately, it is critical that they include your name and birthdate information. Recommendation letters will always be treated as confidential, and never released to you at any time unless the recommender gives explicit direction for us to do so.
- International students must provide information proving financial responsibility for their education. Certain documents required for this process can be uploaded through the applicant portal. Contact admissions if you have further questions on this topic.
