$268 million in aid awarded every year

82 percent of Oregon freshmen receive financial aid, and the UO confers $268 million annually in the form of grants, loans, work-study, and some scholarships. Beyond need-based aid, additional scholarships are open to incoming students and to those who are already attending the UO. 

A college education is a big investment in your future. We want all students and families to be able to plan for that investment without worrying about cost uncertainty. That’s why we provide The Oregon Guarantee: when you choose the UO, the tuition rate you pay will stay the same for up to five years — no increases, no surprises.

Cost of attendance is the estimated cost to attend the UO for the academic year. The Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships provides estimates for cost of attendance information that goes beyond tuition and fees, and includes: living expenses (housing and food), books/supplies/equipment, transportation, and miscellaneous personal expenses.

Why the UO?

There are many reasons why students decide to become Ducks. For some, it's the choice of more than 300 programs offered by our seven undergraduate schools and colleges. For others, it's the opportunity to do research in world-class facilities under the mentorship of faculty scholars. Add in vibrant student life and our beautiful Pacific Northwest location, and you'll find many compelling motivations to choose Oregon.
