Grade First Aid

Welcome to Grade First Aid (GFA). Here you will find all the information needed to help you navigate the Grade First Aid program. Please remember to make an appointment with an academic advisor in the Office of Academic Advising today. Be sure to let them know you are wanting to make a Grade First Aid appointment. You can call 541-346-3211 to make your appointment.

In order to register for classes for the next quarter, you MUST complete the Grade First Aid program. This program is designed to help you achieve academic success at the University of Oregon. Your participation will give you tools and techniques for returning to good academic standing (cumulative GPA of 2.00 or higher) and staying there. Through this program, we will encourage you to seek out campus resources, reflect on your academic career, and develop strategies for optimizing your academic success.

The Grade First Aid program includes activities that will help you develop a plan to achieve success as well as help you become knowledgeable about campus resources. The program is comprised of four main components:

  • An informational questionnaire to help you reflect on previous terms;
  • A one-on-one advising appointment with your assigned advisor;
  • Attend an academic success workshop which will focus on tips and tricks to be successful;

We believe these three simple tasks will help you to develop the skills and confidence to be successful not just in winter and spring quarters, but on your path to graduation. Please do remember however that a HOLD will be placed on your account during week 5 and you will not be able to make any changes to your schedule after that date (this includes changing grading options, dropping a class, etc.). Feel free to contact the Grade First Aid coordinator with questions or concerns:
