How to Join a FIG

FIG Advanced Registration 2024 

Advanced FIG Registration is now open. First-Year students can use this link to register

Advanced FIG Registration through an online form will open Thursday, June 6th starting at 4:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time and ending on Monday, June 24th, at 12:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time.

Changes to FIG registration will be available after a student’s initial advising appointment throughout September until classes begin.

If you’re interested in joining a FIG, we recommend you start looking at the descriptions of each FIG on our "Fall 2024 FIGs" page. After looking through the list, make a list of a few FIGs that you would be interested in taking. FIGs are first-come, first-served, and we don’t offer a waiting list, so it’s a good idea to have a few back-up FIG options in mind.

All FIGs count toward your degree no matter which one you choose.

Four Step Process for Advanced FIG Registration

Registering for a FIG is as easy as this four-step process. Follow each of these steps and you’ll be well on your way to finding the FIG for you (and having a great first term experience at the UO!) If you have any questions about registering for a FIG please call us at 541-346-1131 or email us at

Step 1: Make a list of preferred FIGs

Make sure to complete this step before the day of FIG registration.

Your first step in signing up for a FIG is to look through our entire list of FIGs!

After you’ve looked through the FIGs, create a list of 3+ FIGs that you are interested in taking. *

FIGs fill up quickly but do not fret if you don’t get your first choice! You will have the opportunity to make changes after your advising session.

Step 2: Claim your Duck ID

FIG registration is taking place through an online form. A link will be emailed to first-year students and featured on our website prior to registration opening on Thursday, June 6th. To log in to this form and complete FIG Registration, you must first claim your Duck ID. Make sure you have done this prior to the day of FIG registration.

Step 3: Sign up for a FIG!

Remember that FIG registration will open Thursday, June 6th starting at 4:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time and is ending on Monday, June 24th, at 12:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time.

After logging in to the online form with your Duck ID, follow the instructions to enroll in the FIG of your choice. If the FIG you want isn't listed, or the online form won’t let you complete the enrollment process, it means that FIG is full. Select one of your back-up FIGs instead!

Step 4: Enjoy your summer

Congratulations, you are now signed up for a FIG! If you have additional questions about your FIG post-registration, you can always contact us.

*REMINDER: Chemistry FIGs and some others are not available for online registration. If you are interested in taking one of these FIGs, you can sign up for one during or after your advising session this summer. Please contact us if you want more information.
