The University of Oregon Graduate School awards master's degrees, doctoral degrees, graduate certificates, and graduate specializations from eight schools and colleges: the College of Design, 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 U.S. four-year college or university or the equivalent from an international institution. If you are concerned about your eligibility for admission, please contact the Graduate School for information about obtaining a credential analysis (
International applicants must meet the Graduate School's English Language Proficiency Requirement. International applicants should refer to the International Applicant page for more information.
All other admission eligibility requirements are determined by each school or department.
Application Process
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.
Application Deadlines
Deadlines are set by the schools, departments, and programs. Please contact them directly for exact dates. The University of Oregon Graduate school policy requires that schools, departments, and programs set their application submission deadlines for no less than 30 days before the beginning of the enrollment term.
