Transfer Information

The University of Oregon accepts transfer credit from regionally accredited colleges and universities. Credits earned at junior colleges and community colleges are always transferred at the lower division level. Credits earned at a four-year institution are transferred at both the lower and upper division credit, depending on what level the original course was taught.

First-Year Programs Transfer Seminars

Transfer Seminars are designed for students who have spent at least one term at another institution of higher education after high school graduation.
