Welcome to the UO

Welcome to the UO

What’s Next?

Once you've confirmed your offer of admission—and taken some time to celebrate—your next steps are to register for housing and sign up for an orientation session.

The Hunt at IntroDUCKtion

Domestic students attend IntroDUCKtion, our mandatory orientation, advising, and registration program. International students should visit the International Student & Scholar Services page, which provides information on International Student Orientation (ISO).

Students in the residence halls

First-year students at the University of Oregon live in the residence halls. The earlier you register for housing, the better your chances of getting the room you want. You can make changes to your housing application through July. As you think about where you want to live on campus, you may want to learn more about the communities, room types, and residence halls at the University of Oregon as well as the costs, which are determined by the type of room and meal plan you select.

Immunizations and Insurance

The UO has immunization requirements for all incoming students. A hold will be placed your registration if you are non-compliant with measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) requirements. For international students, the hold will be placed prior to your first term. For domestic students, the hold will be placed for your second term; if you are unable to get vaccinated before arriving, the University Health Center can administer these vaccines once you are attending classes.

Consider purchasing the UO Student Health Benefits Plan for the most comprehensive coverage on campus, in the community, and wherever you may travel.

Student Billing

Billing and payment services are delivered electronically through our online service. Once the statement is available, a message will be sent to your official UO email address. If a third party such as a parent or grandparent will be making the payments, you will need to establish them as an “authorized payer.” Students and authorized payers can view the bill and make online payments.

Statements are generated monthly around the 16th of each month. Payments are due on the first day of the following month. Interest and a billing charge of $6-$10 will be charged on the next billing date if the total amount due has not been paid during the 10-day grace period. The first billing statement for fall term will be available mid-September; for winter term mid-December; and for spring term mid-March.

Finishing Touches

Be sure to have your final high school transcript, as well as college transcripts and any AP, IB, or Cambridge results, sent to our admissions office. Your offer of admission is contingent upon successful conclusion of your high school studies.

Transfers, send us any updated college transcripts for work you completed after you sent in your application. You can view your Transfer Evaluation Report on DuckWeb. Your degree audit will show how your college credits will apply toward general-education and major requirements in your selected UO degree program.
