Freshman Checklist

As you apply for admission to the University of Oregon, use this detailed month-by-month guide to stay on track (note that the dates are based on applying for admission for the fall 2019 term). A brief list of application deadlines is also available, but keep in mind that many departments and majors have earlier deadlines.

Housing: Applying for University Housing does not have a universal deadline. As soon as you are admitted to the UO (and not before) you'll need to apply for housing, make your initial housing payment, and sign your housing contract all online. All freshmen at UO live on campus.
