The Division of Student Services and Enrollment Management advances the University of Oregon's tradition of excellence by enrolling and retaining high-achieving scholars from Oregon, across the country, and around the world. We work on behalf of prospective students, current students, and their families through each phase of the enrollment process: the college search, admission, registration, financial aid, matriculation, transition, and onward to graduation.
The UO continues to achieve unprecedented levels of success in enrollment. The past years have seen the UO set historic records in the academic quality and diversity of incoming classes—and 2016 was another banner year.
For the sixth year in a row, the incoming class was the most diverse in university history, and traditionally under-represented students accounted for nearly 31 percent of the class. The new class also offers socio-economic diversity—39 percent of incoming freshmen from Oregon are eligible for federal Pell Grants, which are intended for students from lower-income households. Additionally, the academic achievements of this year's new class are remarkable. The average GPA of incoming freshmen remains exponentially higher than 10 years ago and their average SAT and ACT scores set a new UO record.
