You register for your classes through the online portal before you arrive at the university.
Each course at the UO is assigned a course level. Courses numbered 100–499 are undergraduate courses; 100–299 are lower division (first- or second-year level), and 300–499 are upper division (third- or fourth-year level). Upper division courses are generally more rigorous and are more likely to have pre-requisites. Courses numbered 500 and above are graduate-level courses.
As a visiting student, you can take courses both inside and outside your academic major. Popular courses and upper division courses may fill up very quickly, so try to flexible with your course selections and register for classes as soon as you can. Course registration is on a first-come first-served basis.
