Staying Connected

The University of Oregon Parent and Family Association is a group of Duck families who have made the choice to be active and engaged with their student's university. It was established in 2005 to enhance programs and services provided to parents and family members of UO students. Families can join the Parent and Family Association for a one-time $75 membership fee that is utilized to provide increased accessibility, services, and events for families. The fee provides a “lifetime membership” that lasts as long as your student attends the university, as well as any siblings who also decide to become Ducks. The one-time membership fee will be waived for families who are Pell Grant or PathwayOregon eligible. Membership in the Parent and Family Association provides family members with a community-based connection to the university, while also serving as a vehicle for input and feedback to campus programs.

  • Monthly email newsletters
  • Exclusive emails during the first six weeks of school
  • Special edition UO news updates
  • One-time 20 percent off coupon to The Duck Store
  • Priority registration and discounted tickets to family weekend events
