Exciting news for our long-distance Ducks: we are bringing our summer IntroDUCKtion orientation program on the road to D.C., Chicago, Dallas and Honolulu! We hope these options make traveling to IntroDUCKtion easier for our new students and families.

All off-site programs will include orientation for students, a comprehensive parent and family program, and an Oregon Migration event. Hotel accommodations are not provided during off-site IntroDUCKtion sessions. If you and your family need local accommodations, we recommend making a reservation at the host hotel.

Registration for off-site IntroDUCKtion programs opens on May 1, 2019 at 8:00 a.m. Pacific Time. To register, log in to DuckWeb, click on the Admissions menu, and select "Register for Orientation and FIGs." You will be guided through the registration process. If you need help, view a step-by-step tutorial.

Academic Advising

Academic advising for students attending the off-site IntroDUCKtion sessions will occur online via BlueJeans. Students will receive an email at their @uoregon.edu email address with specific instructions for logging in to the advising session. Advising and course registration will occur before the off-site IntroDUCKtion sessions.

Attending both an online advising session and the in-person IntroDUCKtion session in the city you select are required.
