This page has the most up to date information on campus-wide COVID-19 regulations and guidance:

NEW! Am I required to report my vaccine status? What is the deadline to report, and how do I report?

UO faculty, students, and staff are required to submit verification of vaccine status or request an exemption from the vaccine mandate. The deadlines to submit vaccination status or request an exemption are:

  • School of Law JD and LLM students – August 13
  • Residence hall students – upon move-in and no later than September 14
  • All other students – September 27

Students use myUOHealth to record their vaccine(s) or request an exemption. To encourage early participation, any student who completes the vaccination requirement process by September 1 will be entered to win $50 Duck Bucks prizes.

More information about the vaccine reporting process and exemptions can be found on the UO Coronavirus website.

Will I be required to get the COVID-19 vaccine to return to campus? Will UO be providing vaccines for students?

University of Oregon students and employees are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to the start of the fall academic term. This public health measure at the UO will help protect our community by reducing the potential for serious illness, hospitalization, or death. It also will limit campus disruptions and allow us to resume in-person instruction and activities.

Vaccines are available through county public health agencies, pharmacies, and health care providers. Those living in Lane County can go to a Lane County Public Health clinic.While UO has hosted vaccine clinics in previous terms, future clinics are not guaranteed, and UO community members are encouraged to seek vaccines through these other channels.

More information about the vaccine requirement can be found on the UO Coronavirus website.

Where can I get Covid testing? Where can my family members/community members get tested?

UO is offering FREE Covid-19 testing through its Monitoring and Assessment Program (MAP). All residents of Lane County are eligible to be tested. Registration is required and appointments are available weekly; more information and the registration link can be found on their website.

How can I get in touch with the main department office?

The main department office is currently closed to visitors, and most UO buildings are currently locked to the public. The best way to get in touch with us is by email: Voicemails are also being monitored even though the call may not be answered. Please include your full name, UO 95#, and a contact email address so we can help you faster.

How do I complete a registrar petition (such as for a withdrawal, late add/drop, or repeating a course)?


The registrar has made these forms available online; all of the forms and instructions for submitting them are now on the Registrar’s website.

Where can I get help with advising?

Tykeson Hall advisors are available to assist remotely! Visit their website to make an appointment or to learn about drop-in advising options.

Students can also email the Sociology Undergraduate Coordinator, Mike Peixoto, with specific questions about course availability, prerequisite overrides, transfer courses, and more.

How can I declare or change my Sociology major/minor?

Use this form to declare or change your Sociology major/minor. You will receive a confirmation email once the form has been submitted, and a follow-up from the registrar once the change has been applied.

How do I register for an independent study (401 Research or 405 Reading) course?

The first step is to discuss your proposed independent study with a faculty member who is willing to supervise the course. Once you have discussed the topic, number of credits, and requirements for a passing grade, your faculty supervisor should email Mike Peixoto, undergraduate coordinator, to grant you permission to register in Duckweb.

How can I get in touch with my instructor?

Locate your instructor here (for faculty) or here (for GE’s) on our website and click their name to view the full profile, which includes their email address and office hour availability.

Where can I get tutoring help?


The UO Tutoring and Academic Engagement Center offers free tutoring in math, writing, language(s), and sciences to all UO students. Details, including sign-up instructions, can be found on their website.

Where can I get IT/computer help?

The Technology Service Desk is available by phone, live chat, and in-person by appointment only beginning September 21st. Visit their website for more information.
