Planning to come to UO this fall? There are a few things to keep in mind:
- Have your official transcript sent from your home school to UO once your spring grades are posted. We will use this to provide departments with proof of pre-requisites when needed.
- You can tweak your schedule until July 6th, but remember registration freezes from July 6-August 8 during freshmen orientations.
- Keep your eye open for an email which will provide more information on the mandatory NSE orientation (2hrs) on September 29th.
- Remember that NSE students post as non-residents until it is adjusted when the term begins. You will then be billed for resident tuition/fees.
- Apply for on-campus Housing through your DuckWeb.
- Problems setting up your email? contact the Help Desk at 541-346-4357
*Move-in day is Thursday, September 22. Classes begin Monday, September 26th
We look forward to seeing you on campus- have an amazing summer!
Current UO students- it may still be possible to exchange to another university for the 2016-2017 academic year!

NSE students attending UO: If you have looked at your UO billing statement on DuckWeb, you might notice that it shows the non-resident tuition rate. This is normal and not a mistake on your account. When the UO bills NSE students for tuition, they are always billed the non-resident rate and the UO’s financial aid office enters a credit (also known as a remission) that adjusts the final bill amount to the resident tuition rate (this sounds strange, but there are accounting reasons for this practice). The remission will eventually show up on your financial aid award (if you’re exchanging on plan A and applied for financial aid) and your UO billing statement, usually a few weeks before each term begins.
You should also expect that the initial financial aid award NSE students exchanging on Plan A receive is based on non-resident tuition. You will receive an updated award letter, which will reflect your status as an NSE student based on the resident tuition rate. It is OK to accept the initial financial aid offer keeping in mind that you will eventually receive an updated financial aid package
Are you planning to participate in the National Student Exchange (NSE) program during the 2015-2016 academic year?
If so, will need to attend an NSE application meeting to get started. There are currently two application meeting times being offered:
- Wednesday, February 4, 2015 from 3:00-4:00 PM in the 360 Oregon.
- Thursday, February 5, 2015 from 3:00-4:00 PM in 360 Oregon Hall.
Each meeting will review the exchange application process, school selection information, and application materials will be distributed. A brief overview of the NSE program will be provided for students who have not attended an NSE informational meeting.
Important Note: All students planning to participate in an exchange during the 2015-2016 academic year should plan to attend one of the above meetings for the full hour. Applications are not available online nor are they available for pick up on a drop-in basis at the UO NSE Office.
What if I’m not able to attend an application meeting?
If you’re not able to attend either application meeting you should call the Office of Academic Advising at 541-346-3211 and schedule an application appointment with the UO NSE Coordinator. Please note that application appointments will be available starting February 6, 2015.
