Continuing and Professional Education
Continuing and Professional Education (CPE) provides leadership for the incubation and delivery of special learning opportunities. Working closely with academic partners and administrative units on campus, CPE facilitates entrepreneurial learning opportunities through customized operational systems such as registration and payment options, facilities and events’ arrangements, educational technology services, communication and design expertise, fiscal processing, and other services essential for quality programs. You do not have to be a student at the UO to explore what CPE has to offer.
Office of Admissions
The Office of Admissions facilitates and manages the entrance of new students into the university. We send admissions counselors to high schools, review more than 25,000 undergraduate applications each year, and guide new Ducks through their admission process. To make it even easier to apply, the UO has become the first public university on the West Coast to join the Common Application—a growing consortium of more than 700 schools around the US and abroad.
University Counseling Center
The University Counseling Center supports students through the challenges that may arise throughout their time in college. We offer individual and group therapy, as well as workshops and outreach programs designed to educate about college mental health, build resilience, and reduce mental health stigma. The University Counseling Center is also home to a doctoral psychology internship program accredited by the American Psychological Association.
University Testing Center
The Testing Center schedules, coordinates, and administers placement exams, credit-by-examination programs, and proctored academic tests, as well as national computer-based and paper-and-pencil testing programs. Students and community members taking online, distance-education courses are able to have their exams proctored at the Testing Center. The office also coordinates with the Accessible Education Center for extended-time academic examinations.
University Health Center
The University Health Center supports students’ academic and personal success by promoting mental and physical health. We employ a board-certified primary care team, and offer numerous specialties such as the dental clinic, pharmacy, acupuncture, immunizations, physical therapy, sports medicine, sexual health, tobacco cessation, and more. The University Health Center works alongside the University Counseling Center to provide mental health services such as psychiatry and therapy.
University Housing creates a tight-knit campus community by combining academic and social life. Living on campus means students have easy access to campus resources such as advisors and tutors. In addition to heightened academic support, living on campus allows students to meet many new people, bond with roommates, take classes together, eat together, and create life-long friendships.
Office of the Registrar
The Office of the Registrar handles class registration and scheduling, refund schedules, academic calendars, exam schedules, priority registration, and more. We organize when and where classes will be held, and strive to make sure students have ample opportunities to take the courses they need. We also provide official transcripts and privately store student records.
Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships
The Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships works to make education at the UO accessible to everyone. Our program PathwayOregon funds full tuition and fees for Pell Grant-eligible Oregonians. Our Stamps Scholarship provides tuition, fees, room, and board for four years of undergraduate study. We offer additional scholarships, grants, work-study, loans, and summer aid. Our professional staff are deeply knowledgeable and strive to help students access higher education.
SSEM Research and Assessment
Through research and development, Student Services and Enrollment Management works to attract, enroll, retain, and graduate a highly qualified and diverse student body. We work on behalf of prospective students, current students, and their families through each phase of the enrollment process. We also assist university departments in the continual re-assessment and implementation of their strategic goals in order to increase the effectiveness of student support.
Student Orientation Programs
Student Orientation Programs introduce new Ducks and their families to life at the UO—demonstrating the university’s commitment to teaching, learning, and scholarship. We host IntroDUCKtion, Week of Welcome, and campus visits. Our mission is to enhance the new student experience by providing guidance and assistance to students making academic, personal, and social adjustments to college life.
Strategic Communications and Marketing
Our team creates and manages innovative campaigns for Student Services and Enrollment Management and the Division of Student Life. Yes, we make posters—but we also create comprehensive communication and marketing plans to support our clients’ goals. We are a team of creative thinkers, makers, and doers. Basically, we’re like a creative agency with a student training ground. We also work closely with Central Communications to ensure we are meeting standards and best practice as a university.
