What You Need to Access DuckWeb
Your browser (Internet Explorer 6 or later recommended) must support cookies. Once connected, you will need to enter your UO ID number and PAC (Personal Access Code) to login. (See PAC Considerations, below, for more information.)
DuckWeb is available 24 hours a day except as follows:
- Friday evenings from 7-11 p.m.
- Second weekend of each month for maintenance and upgrades
- Use the "Help" button for more detailed information about the use of DuckWeb.
- Use the "Menu" button or the menu options at the top of each page. Do not use the "Back" or "Forward" buttons of your browser.
- You have a limited number of attempts to log on correctly, after which access is denied. Contact the Office of the Registrar in order to reactivate your access.
- There is a 25-minute session inactivity timeout. If you do not use the DuckWeb for 25 minutes, you will be required to log in again.
DuckWeb displays your complete account status, along with any outstanding amount due. The account balance may not reflect charges assessed on the day you check.
You may check for holds on the DuckWeb Student menu; click on "View Holds." If you have a past-due financial account, a registration hold may block you from registering. You are informed of holds when you attempt to register and referred to the appropriate department(s).
- Click “Student Menu” and then “Registration Menu”.
- Select "Add/Drop Classes" to add classes by entering the CRNs of the courses
- Select "Search for Open Classes" to find open courses.
- Enter your search criteria (subject, start time, day, general education requirements, etc, or combinations of these elements)
- Register for an open section by checking the box adjacent to the appropriate course, and click the "Register" button at the bottom of the page.
Variable Credit Courses
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.
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.
Confirming Your Schedule
You may review and print your term schedule in either a list format, where complete class information is displayed, or a matrix, a graphic format with less class detail. Click on "Next Week" or "Previous Week" buttons to navigate to a future term, or enter a date in the "Date" box.
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.
To protect the confidentiality of your information, names and UO ID numbers are not automatically printed on DuckWeb documents. If you wish to include your name or UO ID on a printed document, select the "Name on" option.
The first time you register for classes on DuckWeb, you must have your UO ID, PAC, and PIN ready. All students receive a Personal Access Code ("PAC") via mail at the time of application to the university. The first time a student logs into DuckWeb they are required to select a new six-character PAC containing both alpha and numeric characters and are required to set a security question which can be used in the event that the PAC is forgotten. Students may select a new PAC at any time by using the DuckWeb feature "Change PAC."
Students who lose or forget their PAC should use the "Forgot PAC?" button on the DuckWeb login page. Accounts are disabled after three failed attempts at logging in. (For more information, see How to Reset Your PAC on DuckWeb.)
Because personal and academic information is available on DuckWeb, students are strongly encouraged not to share their PAC with friends or family members.
Remember to Log Off!
Remember to log off of DuckWeb when you finish a session, especially if you happen to be on a public computer, such as in a library or a computer lab. Click the "Exit" button on the upper right corner of any screen to exit DuckWeb.
