– Deadlines Extended –

Due to the delay in FAFSA data being supplied to the University of Oregon, the UO is extending the confirmation deadline to June 1, 2024, for first-year students admitted for fall 2024. We are also extending the priority FAFSA filing deadline to April 1, 2024, for all UO students.

Freshman IntroDUCKtion

You did it. You’re a Duck! Not just for the next few years, but for your whole life. And it starts here. Orientation is the first step in calling the University of Oregon home, and we are honored to welcome you.

IntroDUCKtion is our comprehensive orientation and transition experience for new students and their families and is required for all new undergraduates. It’s your opportunity to really begin to know what it means to be a Duck. We will ensure you meet other new students, learn from current students, hear from faculty members and staff who support student success, and get to know campus.

For first-year students entering in fall 2024, IntroDUCKtion will happen in three required parts.

Attend an In-Person IntroDUCKtion Session

Whether you choose an on-campus session or an off-site session is up to you, but attending an in-person session is required for all first-year students.

We offer sessions in July and August. Your session date is not tied to your advising appointment and fall course registration.

Virtual Advising and Registration

All students must meet with an academic advisor prior to registering for their first term. Your advising appointment and registration for fall term classes will take place virtually during the summer months.

You must be registered for an in-person IntroDUCKtion session, claim your Duck ID, and establish your UO email to be eligible for advising and course registration.

Online Requirements

Through an online course on community.uoregon.edu, all new students will be required to complete a small number of assignments throughout the summer to gear up for fall term.

Our orientation course and modules will open at the beginning of June to complete.
