The University of Oregon Graduate School awards master's degrees, doctoral degrees, and graduate certificates from eight schools and colleges: the School of Architecture and Allied Arts, the Charles H. Lundquist College of Business, the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Education, the School of Journalism and Communication, the School of Law, the School of Music and Dance, and the Graduate School (for interdisciplinary degrees).
To be admitted to the University of Oregon for the purpose of seeking an advanced degree or certificate you must be a graduate of a regionally accredited four-year college or university. International applicants should refer to the International Applicants page for more information. All other admission eligibility requirements are determined by each school or department.
The process of applying to a graduate level degree or certificate program at the University of Oregon is decentralized. The university's schools and departments individually:
Disseminate application information and materials.
Determine their own application deadlines which may be set as early as December 1 for the following Fall term.
Determine their own specific requirements for graduate admission.
Please become familiar with these requirements before applying. Inquiries concerning graduate admission should be addressed to the department or school, not to the Graduate School or the Office of Admissions.
Although deadlines are set by the schools and departments, the University of Oregon Graduate School policy requires application submission no less than 30 days before the beginning of the term you have selected for enrollment.
