DuckWeb for Students

What Is DuckWeb?

DuckWeb is the University of Oregon’s online information system for students. You’ll use DuckWeb to manage many aspects of your academic career.

Log into DuckWeb

When you applied for admission to the UO, the Office of Admissions sent you a letter with your UO ID (a number in this format: 95XXXXXXX) and Personal Access Code (PAC). Use your ID and PAC to access DuckWeb.

Keep your ID and PAC safe and secure -- never share them with anyone. If you think your PAC has been compromised, log into DuckWeb and change it immediately.

When you log into DuckWeb for the first time, use the PAC you received in the mail. For security reasons, you will be asked to change your PAC, which must be alphanumeric and six characters long (for example, 01Duck). You will then be prompted to answer several security questions.

I Forgot My PAC!

If you’ve already logged onto DuckWeb once, then you would have been required to select a new PAC and set up a security question. If you have forgotten your PAC, follow these steps to reset a forgotten PAC:

  1. Go to duckweb.uoregon.edu
  2. Enter your UO ID (95XXXXXXX)
  3. Click on "Forgot PAC?"
  4. Enter your birth date (MMDDYY) without slashes
  5. Answer the security questions
  6. Enter a new PAC

If you’ve sent us a transcript from another institution, you can see how your courses were evaluated by clicking on Student Menu > View Transfer Evaluation Report. The report shows each course from the transfer institution on the left and the course or credit received from the UO on the right. This can be especially helpful when you are trying to understand how your courses will fit into your degree audit.

Register for Student Orientation

IntroDUCKtion is the University of Oregon's summer orientation program for new students. At IntroDUCKtion, newly admitted students become acquainted with the UO campus and have opportunities to discuss university life with current students as well as faculty and staff members.

Registration is mandatory and will be available to students who have paid their Advance Tuition Deposit and sent in their "Intent to Register" form to the Office of Admissions.

The Intent to Register form is part of the initial admissions packet that is mailed to all new students. If you can't find this form, you can pay online by logging into DuckWeb under the admissions menu, or by mailing a check (with your UO ID included) to:

OFFICE OF ADMISSIONS
1217 UNIVERSITY OF OREGON
EUGENE, OR 97403-1217

View Degree Audit

To see your degree audit go to Student Menu > View Degree Audit.

Your audit shows

  • Your major and degree
  • Your total credits earned
  • If you’ve fulfilled each of your major or minor, degree, or general education requirements

Satisfied requirements appear in black; unmet requirements are in red. Also look for the Yes or No next to each requirement on the left. Your major advisor or Academic Advising can update your degree audit if needed.

Add and Drop Classes

  • Click on Student Menu > Registration Menu > Add/Drop Classes
  • Choose the term you wish to register for and you will be taken to the main registration page
  • If you're adding a class and you know the CRN (course reference number), enter it in the Add Classes Worksheet at the bottom of the screen and submit changes

If you need to drop a class, you should drop it as soon as you know you will not be attending so that other students have an opportunity to enroll. You cannot drop your last class. Doing so means that you are completely withdrawing from the term

View Your Class Schedule

Click on Student Menu > Registration Menu > View Your Class Schedule.

You can choose to display your schedule in three formats: Text, Matrix, and Concise.

Wait-listing for Classes

Wait lists are available for certain courses that are full that have the red WL code in the course schedule. To use wait-listing, you must meet the prerequisites and restrictions for the course and have a uoregon.edu e-mail account.

See: Wait-listing for Classes

Exchange Sections

To change sections of a course without dropping it, click on Student Menu > Registration Menu > Exchange Sections.

Then follow these steps.

  1. Select the appropriate term.
  2. Select the course that you want to drop from the drop-down box on the left.
  3. Enter the CRN you want to add in the field on the right.
  4. Click Exchange Sections.

If the exchange cannot be made, your course will not be dropped. Do not use the Exchange Sections function for waitlisted courses.

Variable Credits and Grading Options

Some courses have variable credits, and some let you choose between a letter grade or pass/no pass. To set these options, click on Student Menu > Registration Menu > Change Variable Credit/Grading Option.

If your course has these options, a drop-down box will appear next to that course and you can make your selections there. The opportunity to make these changes ends the seventh week of the term for most courses.

Variable Credits

It is the student's responsibility to obtain instructor and/or departmental approval before she or he may change variable credits. DuckWeb automatically selects the lowest credit if a class is offered for variable credit. If you wish to change the credits of your class, click "Change Variable Credit/Grading Option" at the bottom of the page. You may change variable credit only in credit-bearing classes. If a variable credit lecture class has a noncredit laboratory, discussion, or activity section associated with it, use the lecture CRN to make credit changes.

Note: When variable credits are reduced, tuition refunds meet the same criteria as dropped courses. You may owe partial tuition if you do not reduce credits before the 100% tuition refund period ends.

Grading Options

To make a grading option change for a course with an associated noncredit section, change only the CRN of the lecture. DuckWeb automatically selects the graded option for classes where variable grading is available. If you wish to select the "Pass/No Pass" option, click "Change Variable Credit/ Grading Option" at the bottom of the page.

When a grading option choice is available, you may elect to be evaluated on either a graded (A,B,C,D,F) or a pass/no pass (P/N) basis. Classes offered pass/no pass only are noted on the final grade report as P*. Each department, school, or special program has its own regulations on pass/no pass classes for majors. Before exercising the pass/no pass option, you should talk with an advisor.

Course Evaluations

The information students provide in course evaluations is extremely important and ultimately benefits everyone:

  • Other students use course evaluation ratings to choose courses to add to their schedule.
  • Faculty use information from course evaluations to improve their courses and teaching methods, and to determine whether course content is meeting the needs of their students.
  • Department chairs review course evaluation data to assess both their faculty, and the value of courses offered in their department.
  • University committees include course evaluation data as part of faculty reviews, to determine promotion and tenure.

You will be asked to evaluate all your courses at the end of the term. From the main menu, click on Course Evaluations to find a list of your courses. Courses with more than one instructor will have multiple listings so you can evaluate each instructor. Click on Evaluate, answer the questions, and click Submit. (See also: Course Evaluations Schedule)

Grant Proxy Access

Click on the Proxy Access tab to give someone (usually a parent, guardian, or spouse) read-only access to designated areas of your student information. You maintain complete control over your proxy relationships. You are able to set them up, reset their passwords, change or delete their access, and send them messages detailing the access they have been given.

To add a proxy, click on Proxy Management > Add Proxy. Then click on Expand (name of proxy) and complete the proxy profile.

Field Descriptions

Relationship = Select from dropdown menu
Description = Is the proxy your Mother, father, Grandfather, Aunt, etc.?
Start Date = Today’s date
Stop Date = When proxy access ends

Grant Authorization to a Proxy

Once you have completed the profile information, grant authorization to your proxy in the Authorization tab. Select the information you are authorizing your proxy to view. Then scroll back to the top of the page and click on the “E-mail Authorizations link in the right hand corner; this saves the authorization and emails the authorization to the proxy.

After you have authorized the information your proxy can view, the proxy receives an email with a PIN and link to login to view the information authorized. The proxy is required to create a password and should bookmark the link so it is readily available.

Should the proxy forget his/her password, the student will need to login to DuckWeb and reset the proxy’s PIN (click "Reset PIN" in the Profile tab). After the student has reset the PIN, the proxy will receive an email with a new PIN and link to the proxy’s information. Again, the proxy will be asked to create a new password and the link should be bookmarked. A student’s proxy should never share his or her password with another person and to ensure the safety and security of his or her student’s information.

To view what you have authorized proxies to view, go to the History tab and then the Communication tab.

Remove Proxy Access

Use good judgment when authorizing proxy access to your student information. If your proxy has already logged in or accessed your information, then you will no longer be able to delete that proxy’s access and you will need to un-authorize the proxy's access. To do this, click on the Authorization tab and uncheck the boxes to withdraw information that was made viewable to your proxy. You may also enter a new “Stop Date” in the Profile tab to stop all access for that proxy.

Note: Only students can manage their proxies' accounts, regardless of whether the proxy has logged in or not. Staff in the Office of the Registrar and in other UO administrative offices do not have access to change or delete proxy access for students.

Change Term

If you are eligible to register for more than one term you may process registration changes for multiple terms in one DuckWeb session. Select the term for which you wish to make registration changes using the term selection link at the top of the screen.

Completely Withdraw from the Term

You can completely withdraw from a term as long as the withdrawal occurs before the Monday of finals week (after that time you must petition to withdraw). Even though you can use DuckWeb to complete the process, there are a number of other campus offices you will have to contact. We also recommend you talk to Academic Advising and Financial Aid before initiating a complete withdrawal.

If you are prepared to withdraw completely, go to Student Menu > Registration Menu > Completely Withdraw from the Term(s) and follow the steps from there.

Be sure to print the page listing the different offices you may need to contact.
