University of Oregon





The University of Oregon is pleased to welcome new international students for the 2015-16 academic year. This year the university expects to host approximately 3,000 international students.

International Student Orientation (ISO) is required for new students. You must attend all orientation days in person. During ISO you will have a chance to get acquainted with the campus, learn about the student services available to you, take placement tests, meet with an Academic Advisor, register for classes, and much more. You'll also make lots of new friends!

Plan Your Arrival Date

See ISO dates below. Plan your arrival to be in Eugene before the start of ISO. When you are making your plans remember that adjusting to the time change can be difficult!

Summer 2016 ISO: June 16-17, 2016

Fall 2016 ISO: September 14 - 20, 2016 (Check your email during summer for more information)

Want to learn more and get started on your planning now? We think that is a great idea and have created a Pre-Arrival Checklist and Getting Started Guide to help you on this journey and answer your questions on many specific topics.
