Being a transfer student is pretty rad, and we are excited that you chose UO to continue your academic journey. You are joining a flock comprised of faculty, 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 2022, IntroDUCKtion will happen in three required parts.
Attend a Virtual IntroDUCKtion Session
Attending a virtual session is required for all incoming transfer students. Your session date is not tied to advising and registration.
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. You must be registered for a virtual IntroDUCKtion session and Claim your Duck ID to be eligible for advising and registration.
Through an online course on community.uoregon.edu, all new students will be required to complete a small number of assignments this summer to augment the virtual session experience.

More information about the IntroDUCKtion experience for 2022 fall admits will be available in the spring of 2022. Stay tuned for more details.
Academic Advising and Course Registration for Fall
Academic advising is required before a new student can register for their first term at the UO. In 2022, academic advising is happening via Zoom and Teams, and is occurring separately from the in-person session. The date of your virtual session has no impact on the timing of your advising appointment but in order to be eligible for an advising appointment, you must first register for a virtual session and claim your Duck ID. After claiming your Duck ID, be sure to set up and access your uoregon.edu email account via UOmail.
Beginning in late May, advisors on campus will email students’ @uoregon.edu email addresses with an invitation to schedule their IntroDUCKtion advising appointment. Appointments will primarily be available in the month of June and students should not schedule their appointment on the same day as their virtual session.
All new students will be auto-enrolled in an online course at community.uoregon.edu. Students will be required to complete a small number of assignments within the course as part of their overall IntroDUCKtion requirements. Assignments are meant to ensure you:
- Understand the UO degree requirements;
- Learn more about the depth and breadth of the UO’s academic opportunities;
- Have a strong foundational knowledge of the resources on campus available to support your academic and social success; and
- Understand your obligation to academic integrity at the UO.
Student Orientation Programs will also offer a rich set of optional remote programs this summer specifically designed for transfer students. Watch your email inbox for these opportunities throughout the summer!
Connect with Current Transfer Students
Transfer and non-traditional students can also meet with a current transfer student via Zoom to get their questions answered about the campus experience.
