IntroDUCKtion is our required new student orientation that allows incoming students, parents and family members to learn more about the UO including campus life, meeting other students, hearing from staff and faculty and understanding what it means to be a Duck. IntroDUCKtion sessions for summer 2023 are held at the end of June through August.
Week of Welcome
Week of Welcome UO's signature transition week filled with traditions for incoming students with activities and program for new students to become familiar with the university's array of resources, meet new people, and make new friends.
Mid-Year IntroDUCKtion sessions are available for students whose first term will be winter, spring, or summer. Additionally, we offer a session during the spring for transfer students entering in the fall. Freshman students admitted for the fall term must attend one of the summer IntroDUCKtion sessions.
International Student Orientation
International Student Orientation is an opportunity for new international students to take the AEIS (Academic English for International Students) and math placement tests, meet with an academic advisor, and register for classes.
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.
Alternative Ways to Earn Credit
The University of Oregon has established programs through which students may earn credit toward graduation and, at the same time, decrease the cost and time required for standard undergraduate study.
Placement Testing at the UO consists of tests in Writing, Mathematics, Second Language and AEIS (Academic English for International Students).
