The Future Starts Now

Our most generous benefactors made a $500 million gift to launch the Phil and Penny Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact—dedicated to fast-track science discoveries into innovations, products or cures that could improve the quality of life for people in Oregon, the nation and the world.


Mission Statement

Student Services and Enrollment Management supports the university by attracting, enrolling, retaining, and graduating a highly qualified and diverse student body while continually seeking opportunities for access and affordability. We contribute to the overall effectiveness of the university through strategic partnerships while fostering an exceptional academic experience.


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 and scholarship, orientation, campus life 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. But we don't stop there. We care and support students while they live and learn on campus in University Housing, visit the Counseling and Testing Center or Health Center. We also support community education through our Academic Extension office.


Student Life Cycle "The Oregon O" is the ultimate symbol for learning, an unending process throughout our lives. Here we see it reflected in the student life cycle, a process without an end. Prospective students make the decision to become Oregon Ducks, go on to achieve success here, then graduate. Through their academic, career, community, and financial contributions, alumni and donors fuel the growth and development of new students. We value our alumni and encourage them to give the wheel another spin. Welcome to our circle; or as we call it The Oregon O.
