The University of Oregon reviews incoming freshmen students via their self-reported academic record (SRAR/self-reported transcript). For a student to be considered for admission, they must provide a self-reported academic record of all coursework completed in high school (secondary school). Students who apply via the Common Application or Coalition Application will typically provide the required information as a part of their submitted application. Students applying via the Oregon application will receive a link to provide the information after submitting their application.
The information provided on the SRAR will be used to review the application for admission and consider the student for scholarships. It is important that the information be accurate and match the student’s high school transcript information. Grades and coursework should not be entered from memory. Students should have a copy of their transcripts when completing this section. Often, unofficial copies will have all of the necessary information. Students can obtain a copy of their transcript from their school counselor or registrar.
In order to finalize their admission, students must provide a final official high school transcript to the Office of Admissions prior to enrollment. If information on the final official high school transcript differs from information provided on the SRAR, a student’s admission and scholarship offer could be revoked.
Students who attended multiple high schools must provide an official transcript that shows all coursework. If information is omitted or changed on the current institution’s transcript, an official transcript from all schools attended must be provided.
Grade Point Average (GPA) Calculation
The University of Oregon considers students for admission and scholarships based on a cumulative weighted GPA. This GPA is recalculated based on a student’s completed coursework and may not be the same as the GPA shown on the transcript.
In general, the UO will include all grades from ninth grade forward. However, eighth-grade coursework in math or foreign language completed at the high school (secondary) level will also be included if reported on the high school transcript.
Weight is added to grades based on certain types of rigor recognized in a particular course. Weight is only added for courses in which a grade of a "C-" or better is received.
Courses completed in Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), Cambridge (AICE), or Dual Enrollment (College in High School) receive one (1) weight point (As are worth 5 instead of 4, Bs 4 instead of 3, etc.).
Courses completed with an Honors designation receive 0.50 weight points (As are worth 4.5 instead of 4, Bs 3.5 instead of 3, etc.).
The University of Oregon utilizes a letter-grade scale. Any grades that are received that are numeric will be converted into a letter-grade scale.
|Example Letter Grade||4-Point Conversion|
|Numeric Grade||Example Letter Conversion|
If the school provides a numeric scale that differs from the above on the transcript, it will be used for the numeric-to-letter grade conversion.
|IB Grade||Letter Conversion|
For students whose grades are issued on an IB scale
