About the Program

The PathwayOregon program could be for you if you’re an Oregonian wondering how you might afford an education at the University of Oregon. The program ensures that academically qualified Federal Pell Grant eligible Oregonians will have their University of Oregon tuition and fees paid with a combination of federal, state, and university funds.


In the fall of 2008, the University of Oregon welcomed the first PathwayOregon students to campus as part of an innovative program to help more students than ever afford an education at the state’s flagship institution.

Members of the original group graduated in the spring of 2012 in record-setting numbers, and PathwayOregon students still working toward their degrees are pursuing a host of academic possibilities that will continue to serve them long after they graduate from the University of Oregon. Beyond the classroom, PathwayOregon students are taking advantage of the UO’s full slate of opportunities, including study abroad programs and internships.

Each year, the UO welcomes new PathwayOregon students to campus. We invite you to explore this website to see if the program is right for you.
