Apply for Your Degree
If you haven’t already applied to graduate, make sure you apply online as soon as possible.
Apply for your undergraduate degree on DuckWeb. (Please select the term in which you will complete your degree requirements.) The Office of the Registrar has extended the deadline for spring 2020 undergraduate degree applications to May 10, 2020.
The graduate student degree application deadline for spring term 2020 was April 12, 2020. If you missed the priority deadline, contact your department to request a deadline override.
Register for Commencement 2020
Thank you to everyone who registered to receive a commencement celebration box! The deadline has now passed and all 5,000 boxes have been claimed.
Eligible graduates are anyone who applied to graduate winter 2020, spring 2020, summer 2020 or fall 2020, and any undergraduate student who was/is enrolled winter 2020 or spring 2020 and has at least 156 cumulative credits, or any masters student enrolled winter 2020 or spring 2020 who has at least 40 cumulative credits or doctoral students with 80 cumulative credits.
Order Your Regalia
The Duck Store’s Grad Fair is now completely online. Caps, gowns, and a wide-array of other regalia and memorabilia are available. Packages include a UOAA membership and Duck Store gift card. We’ve waived the annual commencement fee for the class of 2020 and all graduates will be mailed a diploma cover at no charge, thanks to a donation from the University of Oregon Alumni Association.
Personalize Your Graduation Slide
Degree-specific commencement ceremonies will be taking place virtually. Each student will receive individual recognition in these pre-recorded ceremonies. You will be sent an email to your "@uoregon.edu" email address that will include specific instructions on how to personalize your information by adding a written message, hear your name be called, upload a photo and video, and download your clip to share with family and friends.
This personalization is optional and students who choose not to be recognized individually will be given an opportunity to opt out, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prepare for Life Beyond the UO
We know that the question of “what’s next?” can be daunting, especially now. Visit the University Career Center for information especially for seniors, and for help on resumes, interviewing, appointments with career coaches, and other career-related help. Also, be sure to share your post-graduation plans through the UO's First Destination Survey. No matter what your plans are, this information is extremely helpful in understanding our university and is used to help support the education and student services for future Ducks. Thank you for your participation!
When you become an alumnus or alumna of the University of Oregon, you join a family of Ducks throughout the world, no matter where you land. The Alumni Association is here to ease that transition with advice from experts and Duck alumni who have been there, and help you stay connected to the UO after graduation. Once a Duck, always a Duck!
Stay Connected for Information on Commencement 2021
We can’t wait to see you back on campus for commencement next spring! We’ll send you messages as we get closer to Commencement 2021. In order to ensure you receive them, it’s important that you forward your UO email before you graduate. Go to Duck ID Self-Service and follow the instructions to set up a forward of your "@uoregon" email to your personal email address. Don't forget to export any emails you'd like to keep. Although your forward will last forever, your stored email won't! Refer to the Duck ID website for more details.
Don’t Miss a Thing!
We’ll be updating our website as more information emerges for Commencement 2020 (and Commencement 2021). We’ll email important information to graduates in the coming weeks at their official "@uoregon" email, and through updates to the Commencement website. Please contact us at email@example.com with any questions.
