For Admitted Students
Frequently asked questions
We ask that all new students plan their arrival date so they can attend orientations. These events are a great way to meet other graduate students and gather some valuable information. This includes information on health insurance, visa requirements, networking and your student bill.
The International Student Orientation is mandatory for new international students. You can find information on the Office of International Affairs website at isss.uoregon.edu/iso.
Each Fall, the Graduate School hosts several orientation events to supplement the department’s orientation. You can find more information on the orientations at gradschool.uoregon.edu/orientation.
When students register for a course that is offered for variable credit, DuckWeb automatically selects the lowest credit. Students should have instructor and/or departmental approval before changing variable credits. Change variable credits in DuckWeb (from “Student Menu,” go to “Registration Menu” -> “Change Variable Credit/Grading Option”). A link to this option also appears at the bottom of many of the DuckWeb registration screens. When variable credits are reduced, tuition refunds meet the same criteria as dropped courses. Students may owe partial tuition if credits are reduced after the 100% tuition refund period ends.
Courses are offered as Graded only, Pass/No Pass only, or Optional Grading. DuckWeb automatically selects the graded option on courses with Optional Grading. Students who want to take a course Pass/No Pass need to change the course once they are registered in the course. They should meet with their advisor before registering. Some courses require that majors take the course for a grade while allowing non-majors a choice of grading options. It is the responsibility of the student to register for the appropriate major grading option requirement.
