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.

ExplOregon

Explore campus and the immediate surrounding area with SOSers

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.

Traditions

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.

In-Person Dates

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.

Submit your immunization and COVID-19 vaccination records

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.

Accept your billing account terms and conditions

Accept the terms and conditions of your financial relationship with the university. Log in to DuckWeb, open the Student Menu, select “Billing Account Terms and Conditions,” read the agreement, check the box to agree, and select “Save.”

Enroll in two-step login with DUO security by July 28

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.

Complete the online Prevention Modules

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.

Complete your Financial Aid Checklist

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.
