Schedule a visit

Students who are admitted into our Ph.D. program and live in the U.S. will be invited for a group campus visit, generally during the first week of our spring term. We subsidize airfare and provide group lodging, food, and opportunities to meet with your prospective advisor(s), other faculty with whom you may want to work, and current graduate students. We will contact you to make travel arrangements soon after we notify you that you have been accepted into our program.

Prospective M.A. and Ph.D. students are welcome to visit us at any time to help you decide whether UO is the right place for you to pursue your graduate studies. While visits to UO are not required during the admission process, some students have found them helpful. If you decide to come, please let us know in advance so that we can help make your visit as useful as possible. Our Director of Graduate Studies, the Graduate Coordinator, and faculty members can be contacted directly to arrange appointments. Contact information is located here. Additionally, the Office of Admissions offers daily campus tours. Register at

If you have specific questions on other topics regarding the online application process or life in Eugene, the Graduate Coordinator can help you with those as well.
