Financial Aid

Many of our scholarships are based on financial need, so it is important for you to complete the Free Application for Student Financial Aid (FAFSA) by the federal deadline.

Submit the University of Oregon as your university of choice. Our code is 003223.

International students and those not able to file a FAFSA are eligible for College of Education scholarships and, while not required, are encouraged to establish financial need by submitting a financial resources form to the Office of International Affairs.

Free Application for Student Financial Aid


We provide a number of scholarship and funding opportunities in an effort to offer students support in pursuing their degrees and professional futures by removing as many barriers to those goals as possible.

We use one common application that will automatically enter you into consideration for any and all scholarships for which you meet selection criteria.

If selected, scholarship recipients must:

  • Maintain good academic standing
  • Serve as representatives of the college
  • Meet with the dean, development officer, and scholarship committee as requested
  • Maintain contact with living donor (if applicable)

Students currently applying for a COE academic program, but not yet accepted at the time of the deadline, should still submit their scholarship application for consideration, pending acceptance into the program. Scholarship decisions will be made prior to the end of March.

Doctoral Research Award

The College of Education provides awards for doctoral research projects. Projects need to be approved by students’ dissertation committees. Award applications are open twice each year.

Cost of Attendance


Information regarding UO’s mandatory fees can be found through the Office of the Registrar. The Mandatory Enrollment and Course Fees link provides a description of each fee type including a matrix to determine your Campus-based Fee Structure.

Cost Estimates


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.
