Transfer Checklist

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

Housing: Registering for University Housing does not have a universal deadline. As soon as you are admitted to the UO (and not before) you'll be able to register for housing, make your initial housing payment, and sign your housing contract all online. Space is limited, so apply as soon as possible.






  • Submit the FAFSA or ORSAA by February to allow time to meet the priority deadline, March 1.




  • Submit your university application for admission by June 1 to meet the regular deadline.
  • When you receive an Intent to Register Form, complete it and return the form with your $200 advance tuition deposit (ATD).
  • Your financial aid offer will arrive around June if you submitted a FAFSA or ORSAA. Scholarships and grants are automatically accepted on your behalf. You can accept offered loans or work-study in DuckWeb. 
  • Transfer student advising and registration for fall term take place in June.
  • Sign up for IntroDUCKtion, the summer orientation program, by June 30.


  • Attend your IntroDUCKtion session. If you missed June advising, meet with an adviser and register for fall classes.


  • Start packing! If you have completed your online housing contract and made your prepayment, you will receive your residence hall room assignment, your roommate information, and other move-in details this month.


  • Orientation for students who missed IntroDUCKtion happens in the week leading up to the first day of class.
  • Residence hall check-in is September 21. Students who missed IntroDUCKtion and need advising may check in September 20, but pre-authorization is required for early check-in.
  • Week of Welcome events take place September 21–24.
  • Enjoy the first day of classes on September 25.
