Transfer IntroDUCKtion

If you are planning to transfer to UO in winter, spring, or summer term, please refer to our Mid-Year IntroDUCKtion information for more details.

Being a transfer student is pretty rad, and we are excited that you chose the UO to continue your academic journey. You are joining a flock comprised of faculty members, staff, and peers who are just as excited that you’ve made this decision and can’t wait to meet you.

IntroDUCKtion is our orientation program that is required for all incoming transfer students. During IntroDUCKtion, you’ll learn what it means to be a Duck and what it takes to be successful here at the UO.

Get Ready for Fall

For transfer students entering fall 2023, IntroDUCKtion will happen in three required parts.

Attend a Transfer IntroDUCKtion Session

Attending a Transfer IntroDUCKtion session is required for all incoming transfer students. Transfer IntroDUCKtion is held in person and on campus for summer 2023 in Eugene. Your session date is not tied to your academic advising appointment and course registration for fall term.

Virtual Advising and Registration

All students must meet with an academic advisor prior to registering for their first term. Your advising and registration will happen virtually with advising appointments beginning as early as June.

Starting in June, students will receive an email to their UO email account with their invitation to schedule advising. Email invitations will be sent once a student has registered for IntroDUCKtion, claimed their Duck ID, and set up UO email.

Online Requirements

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