I want to practice my English before attending UO? What options are available to me?

I will be in the U.S. for fall term. Are all of these options available to me?
If you plan to be in the U.S. for fall term, some #NoVisaNeeded options may still be available to you. Options requiring travel may be limited if you are located in the U.S. Please contact an advisor to learn more.

What is the difference between "online" and "remote"?
"Online courses" are recorded class delivered on a web-based platform. In this type of class, there is no in-person or scheduled live interaction. "Remote courses" are live interaction at a scheduled time connected through Zoom or Teams. You will connect with your instructor through the internet.

Can I visit UO?
If you plan to travel to Eugene for an essential short-term visit, we will be there every step of the way. We will provide you with travel and safety information if, and when, it is appropriate to visit campus, meet UO faculty, or check out residence halls.
