 Advising at UO

Advisors at the Office of Academic Advising help new students make a smooth transition to the university and assist continuing students in many ways. It is a place where students can sit down with an advisor one-on-one and discuss their individual concerns and questions.  In addition, advisors help students develop meaningful educational plans that are compatible with their life goals. Specialized advising is available for students who are undeclared (have not chosen a major), those transferring to the UO, or those interested in pursuing graduate training in health sciences, law, and other professions. OAA coordinates initial advising with academic departments for all new undergraduate students during orientation programs.

Each student is an important new member of our student community. We want each student’s experience at the University of Oregon to be a successful one! Please call us to schedule an appointment at (541) 346-3211.  We look forward to speaking with you!

Academic Planning

With more than 2,000 courses and nearly 100 majors to choose from, students have many choices as they plan their academic career. Students are encouraged to develop a course of study with a faculty or professional advisor that reflects their special interests, goals, and career aspirations. To facilitate this planning, students meet with academic advisors in departments and in our office throughout their time at the UO. Working with advisors and using tools such as the Degree Audit, enables students to actively create coherence in their education and effectively plan for graduation

All new undergraduate students are required to meet with an advisor prior to registering for the first time and are advised to continue seeing an advisor each term while at the UO.
