How to Register for a FIG


Registering for a FIG is as easy as this three-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!

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! The FIGs are sorted by theme to make it easier for you to find a few that interest you. You can click on individual titles to read a description of the FIG and to learn more details about the courses that make up the FIG.

After you’ve looked through the FIGs, create a list of 3+ FIGs that you are interested in taking.* We recommend that you have in mind at least one or two backup FIGs in case your top choice fills before you sign up. Every year different FIGs tend to fill up very quickly once registration opens, so this ensures that you will have a backup plan FIG-ured out if you do not get your first choice!

If you have any questions about specific FIGs that you may be interested in, or would like recommendations of what FIG might be the best fit for you, don’t hesitate to email us at or call us at 541-346-1131. We’re in the office from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM every weekday and would love to chat FIGs with you!

Step 2: Know your student ID # and DuckWeb login!

FIG registration goes through the DuckWeb information system, the primary website that you will use to sign up for IntroDUCKtion and all of your other classes as a student. Logging into DuckWeb requires you to input your UO ID # (number beginning with 95) as well as your Personal Access Code (PAC). Make sure you know this information prior to the day of FIG registration.

Step 3: Sign up for a FIG!

Remember that FIG registration opens at 4:00 PM Pacific Time on Monday, May 15. If possible, try to log in to DuckWeb 5-10 minutes early to avoid any possible unforeseen issues (internet or login issues). Be sure to refresh the website at 4:00 to have access to the FIG Registration option.

After logging in, from the main menu navigate to the Admissions Menu. Within this menu, there will be the option to “Register for Orientation and FIGs.” Choose this option and from here you will be able to choose a FIG! Simple select a FIG from the drop-down menu and click “Save Selection.” Following is a screenshot of this webpage so you can see what it will look like when you register.

Step 4: Enjoy your summer and talk to us at your IntroDUCKtion session

Congratulations, you are now signed up for a FIG! If you have additional questions about your FIG post-registration, you can always contact us. Otherwise we’ll look forward to seeing you at your IntroDUCKtion session!

*REMINDER: Chemistry FIGs are not available for online registration on May 15. If you are interested in taking a Chemistry FIG, you can sign up for one at your IntroDUCKtion session. Please contact us if you want more information on Chemistry FIGs.
