Departmental Deadlines and Applications

The Office of Admissions reviews applications for admission to the University of Oregon. Some majors and programs have selective admissions where the review of admission for the program is in addition to the overall application review.

Applicants will receive a separate admissions decision from the UO and the programs or majors listed below. If a student is offered admission to the UO, but not to the program they applied to, their major will be changed to "exploring" (undeclared) and they may work with academic advising to choose another major or reapply to that program as a current UO student. (Note: Students not offered admission to the direct-admit business major would be coded as pre-business and eligible to apply to the business major while a continuing student at the UO.)

Programs may have different application deadlines and sometimes require an additional application or materials. Students should review the requirements and process for the program in which they are interested.

Dates listed below are postmark deadlines for fall term admission. Ensure the program you are looking into considers applications for the term you are applying if you intend to begin at the UO at any time other than fall term. 

Programs without an Early Action application deadline do not have multiple reviews or deadlines in a year.
