How to Register for Classes on DuckWeb
Follow the steps below to learn more about how to register for classes on DuckWeb. See also: video tutorial.
Step 1. From the UO home page, click "DuckWeb".
Step 2. Here, enter your nine-digit UO ID number ("ID"), followed by your six-character Personal Access Code or PAC, and click “Log In.”
Step 3. From the DuckWeb home page, click “Student Menu” and then “Registration Menu”.
Step 4. Click “Add/Drop Classes”, select the term you wish to register for and Click “Submit”.
Step 5. The first time you log into DuckWeb to register, you will be asked for your first time registration PIN, given to you by your advisor at your advising session during orientation. Enter the six digit number as shown and click Submit.
Step 6. To find courses to register for, scroll to the bottom of this screen and click "Class Search".
Step 7. Here you can search for classes by selecting options for subject, general education requirements, course number or others. You can select just one search option, or several.
Once you have filled in any of the restrictions you wish to use, click "Class Search".
Note: Class Search can also be accessed from the Registration main menu, by clicking on "Search for open classes".
Step 8. When you click "Class Search", you will be shown a list of courses that meet the restrictions you entered. If you would like to know more about a course before registering for it, click on the CRN to retrieve more details about prerequisites, course description, instructor information, fees, and important deadlines.
Step 9. To register for a course using this screen, click the check box next to the section you wish to add. Then scroll to the bottom of the screen, and click "Register".
Step 10. When a course has been added to your schedule, you will see it listed under "Current Schedule", followed by the total credit hours you are registered for.
Step 11. Some courses consist of both a lecture section and a discussion or lab section. This type of course can be identified by noting that a single course number will be followed by a group of labs or discussions sections whose title begins with a plus symbol ("+").
Note: If you click "Register" with only the lecture section selected an error message will appear, letting you know that you need to return to the prior screen and check the boxes next to both the lecture and discussion or lab.
To register successfully for the course in this example you must also check one of the discussion sections, and register for both at the same time.
Step 12. You may also add classes in the Add Classes Worksheet by entering the CRNs of the courses you decided on with your advisor. To add a course, scroll to the bottom of the screen and enter the CRNs you want to add into the fields at the bottom. (Look for the open boxes.) When you have entered the CRNs you wish to add, click “Submit Changes”.
Step 13. Once you have registered for all classes you need, select “View Your Class Schedule” to verify your courses and to print a copy of your schedule.
The Student Class Schedule screen offers three formats for layout:
- Text Format provides a simple list of course meeting times.
- Matrix Format displays a weekly calendar grid that many students find helpful.
- Concise Format lists your courses in a convenient layout and includes distance education courses, which are not listed in Matrix Format.
Step 14. When you are satisfied with your schedule, print it out.
Congratulations, you are now registered for classes at the University of Oregon!
