First-Year and Transfer Seminars 


The Path to Success Starts Here.

When arriving on campus, new students must adjust to a new environment, structures, and the expectations of college. Our seminar groups, for both First-Year and Transfer students, provide them with the academic, social, and personal support during their first term that will help them find their path at UO.


Each seminar meets once before fall classes begin during Week of Welcome.
