How it works

Graphic representing Enrol

You will study the first two years of your undergraduate degree program at Southern Oregon University. You’ll have a Conditional Letter of Acceptance from the University of Oregon before you arrive.

You’ll take degree classes with American students from day one. There’s no 'Year 0'.
Kings staff will be on campus to support you throughout.

We’ll help develop your student profile to become an 'Oregon-ready' student

Kings expert University Advisors on campus will support you all the way. They make the transfer process straightforward.

Transfer after 2 years to The University of Oregon. Guaranteed. (Upon meeting requirements on the CLA.)

Graphic representing Graduate

Graduate from the University of Oregon after just 4 years: 2 years at SOU and 2 years at the University of Oregon. Please note some academic majors may take longer to complete due to the course structure and requirements.

Remember: Your graduation Diploma will be from the University of Oregon not from the campus where you started!

This is where you will spend the first two years of your degree. Once you have completed your sophomore year at SOU, you will transfer to the University of Oregon to complete the last two years and major.
