Get Ready for Fall
Welcome and congratulations on your admission to the University of Oregon! The IntroDUCKtion experience is hybrid in 2021, which means you will have both online activities, and come to campus for other parts of the experience.
Remote IntroDUCKtion requirements
IntroDUCKtion requirements you will complete remotely are:
In your Community course
- Academic Advising module and quiz
- Faculty Perspectives videos and reflections
- Interest session videos and reflections
- Academic integrity module and quiz
Required In-Person IntroDUCKtion Experience
IntroDUCKtion requirements you will complete in-person:
Introduction to the Academic Community
Hear about what it means to be a student at the UO and academic resources to help with your success.
You Got This
You are already resilient. This session will help you identify how to use your resiliency to flourish and understand resources.
Your Story, Our Story
We all have a story, individually and collectively. This session is an opportunity for you to think about your own identities and find solidarity in a community of individuals.

Prevention and Education
We'll talk openly about consent, sexual wellness, and being an effective bystander. It's all part of being a good Duck.
We'll share what comes next after your in-person session, plus you'll learn about UO traditions!
- Check-in for your in-person program will begin at 8:00 a.m. on the day of your session and we anticipate the required elements of the program will end around 8:00 p.m. We do not have any required programs the day after your session.
- Academic advising will not take place during in-person programs. Please refer to the “Remote IntroDUCKtion Requirements” above for details. Once you are invited to schedule your advising appointment with your academic advisor, please do not schedule it for the same day as your in-person session.
For information about traveling, what to bring, and preparing for your session, visit our Before You Arrive page.
Domestic students will be required to attend an in-person session as part of the IntroDUCKtion requirements. Space is limited for each session and we cannot put you into a full session. We encourage you to consider several date options that fit in your summer schedule in case spaces fill in your first choice before you register. Registration will open in the admissions portal starting on Monday, May 3, at 8:00 a.m. Pacific time.

Housing for In-Person Sessions
In July and August, students may opt to stay up to two nights in University Housing for their in-person session. All rooms will be double occupancy and assigned during check-in. Students who opt to stay in the residence halls will be required to submit one of the following prior to receiving keys to a room:
- Attestation of being fully vaccinated at least 14 days prior to the start of their scheduled IntroDUCKtion; OR
- A negative PCR test within 72 hours of arriving in Eugene.
Other University Requirements and To Dos
Several University Departments have required steps for you to take to maintain your active enrollment at the UO. Download a printable copy here.
Submit your selfie and a photo of approved government-issued photo ID for your UO ID Card. Your ID Card is your bus pass, meal card, library card, your ticket to sporting events, and so much more. Submit your selfie and documentation at least two weeks prior to your in-person session.
Send your final high school transcript
We must receive your official final high school transcript that shows the date you earned your diploma in order to complete your admission file. Mail them to:
- Office of Admissions
1217 University of Oregon
Eugene, OR 97403-1217
Housing room selection
Check your My Housing portal for your assigned date and time to select your room. July 31 is the last day to make changes to your room selection, or to file an exemption to the live-on requirement.
Be sure to obtain and submit a digital copy of your required immunization records online. You can also upload your medical insurance information. Log into your myUOHealth account with your Duck ID, click on the "Upload" tab, and upload your document.
Now that you’ve become more familiar with UO systems, sign up for DUO for added security for your UO accounts. After August 2, you will not be able to log into UO systems like your My Housing portal, your Community page, UO wifi, or any other system that requires your DuckID.
Beginning on August 31, you can log in to complete four modules that cover alcohol, consent and respect, cannabis, and other drugs. Complete these modules no later than September 26.
You may need to accept aid, complete entrance loan counseling and sign a master promissory note. Be sure you’re up-to-date.
Add Authorized Payers
If you want to, you can add family members as “Authorized Payers” who are contributing financially to your degree at duckweb.uoregon.edu.
