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:

EUGENE, OR 97403-1217

Once the Advance Tuition Deposit has been paid and you are pre-registered, you may then log on to DuckWeb with the student ID number and the Personal Access Code (PAC) that the Admissions Office mailed you after you applied for admission. Simply follow the prompts to register for orientation.

Choosing Your IntroDUCKtion Session

Before choosing your desired IntroDUCKtion session, remember that you must attend the entirety of the session. You cannot leave early, and if you arrive late, you will not be permitted to join the session in progress. You must complete this registration process (including making your payment) before your space in the orientation session will be held.

To begin the registration process, click "Register for an Orientation Session". Next, click the "Continue" button and review the Code of Conduct and the Refund Policy carefully (see also: Refund Policy). Check the box labeled "I have read and understand the Code of Conduct and the Refund Policy." Before clicking the "Continue" button. If you have been contacted by UO as a proposed athlete, check the appropriate box before clicking the "Continue" button again.

When a list of available sessions is displayed, keep in mind that the number of available sessions vary depending on when you register. If you are registering for IntroDUCKtion for Freshmen, you will see a "Y" in the columns following the session date, indicating the availability of student housing and Parent and Family IntroDUCKtion. Click the "Continue" button once you have selected the session you would like to attend.

On the next screen, you may select the number of nights you would like to stay in the residence halls. All freshmen are required to stay on campus for IntroDUCKtion for at least one night. If you would like to arrive on campus the evening before the session begins, please select a two-night stay in the residence halls. Note: parents and family members are NOT permitted to stay on campus.

Your orientation fee includes one guest for Parent and Family IntroDUCKtion. If you would like to add an additional guest to this concurrent program, you may do so during the registration process. To learn more about the Parent and Family IntroDUCKtion session, visit our Parent and Family IntroDUCKtion.

You will need to temporarily disable your pop-up blocker before proceeding. If you are unsure how to do this, consult "Help" in your browser, or contact the Help Desk. When you are ready, click the "Open QuikPAY Window" button and follow the instructions to complete your payment. A confirmation letter, map, parking pass and information brochure will be mailed within a week of your on-line registration.

When your payment is complete, be sure to go back to the initial screen of this process and make sure that your IntroDUCKtion session is displayed correctly.

Congratulations, you have registered for IntroDUCKtion! Questions? Contact the Registrar's Office.

Selecting a FIG

FIG registration opens after students register for IntroDucktion. FIG registration dates can be found on the First Year Programs website.

A FIG (First-Year Interest Group) brings groups of 20 freshmen together for a unique academic experience. Students take three courses together, centered on an exciting theme. While registering for a FIG is optional, we have found that they help students to have a good first-term experience at UO, and are instrumental in later success. Detailed descriptions of FIGS that are offered can be found on the First Year Programs website in First-Year Interest Group (FIG).

First Year Programs

In Duckweb, go to "Select a FIG." You will see a drop-down list of all available FIGS on the next page. If a FIG you are interested in is not shown, this means that it is full. There are no wait lists for FIGs, but spaces open up at IntroDUCKtion sessions. You will not be able to change your FIG until you get to campus for IntroDUCKtion.

After selecting a FIG from the list, click "Save Selection" to continue. Your selection will be shown in the information block under "First-Year Interest Group". Remember that if the FIG you selected is a residential FIG, you must also submit a UO residence hall application by the housing request deadline.
