Application, Deadlines, and Admission

The application process for admission to begin the FHS major will re-open in November 2018.  Applicants in the upcoming admission cycle, if accepted, will begin the major in Fall 2019.  Updates and directions on the application process will be posted here, as they become available.

Admission to the FHS major is a separate process from admission to the University of Oregon. The UO Office of Admissions provides information on university admission deadlines and procedures. Their telephone numbers are: 541-346-3201 or 800-BE-A-DUCK. Students are admitted to the College of Education Family and Human Services undergraduate major on a competitive basis. The major has restricted enrollment; therefore, not all students who meet the minimum requirements are admitted. Transfer students should speak with academic advisor Randy Martin at 541-346-1583 or Christi Boyter at 541-346-2476 about the transfer process.
