UO Summer Session

Incoming Freshmen

Congratulations, Duck! We are excited you’ve planted your flag with us and we can’t wait to see how “If” will inspire you in the coming years.

If you can’t wait either, don’t. Enroll in a few classes this summer to learn the campus, enjoy the community, earn a few credits, and start making friends.

Please note: credits you earn during the summer will apply towards your degree, but during the summer you will be classified as a non-admitted student and will not have access to financial aid.

Key facts

  • Tuition is less expensive during the summer than it is the rest of the school year.
  • You may live in the dorms, but you will not have early access to your fall dorm room.
  • There is no formal freshman orientation available before summer term.


  1. Fill out the registration eligibility form on the summer session website, available in late February.
  2. In late April the Office of the Registrar will mail you your UO ID number and PAC code (they will be the same numbers you may have already received or used previously if you have ever taken a class.)
  3. Register for classes beginning on Friday, May 12.
  4. Questions about what classes to take? You have access to Academic Advising before you are an admitted student, or contact the department you are interested in majoring in to see how the credits might apply to your degree.
