MEDIA ADVISORY: UO extends enrollment deadline to June 1 due to FAFSA delays

What: The University of Oregon is extending the confirmation deadline from May 1 to June 1, 2024, for first-year student fall enrollment for the 2024-25 academic year. The change is due to a later-than-expected rollout of a revised Free Application for Federal Student Aid, the form commonly known as FAFSA that schools use to compute financial aid. The extension allows prospective students time to review financial aid offers and seek any additional guidance needed before making a decision.

“We understand that the changing federal financial aid process has been extremely challenging for all prospective college students across the country,” said Roger Thompson, vice president for Student Services and Enrollment Management. “While all of us, students, families, colleges, and universities face some uncertainty at this time, we want to assure our admitted students that we are here to provide as much guidance and support as possible.”

The UO is supporting future students by providing clarity and additional time while students make the right decision for them and their families. In addition to the extended deadlines, admissions staff will assist students and families navigating this process through admitted student events and programs throughout the spring.
