The AIM Program requires that all materials, except for transcripts, be submitted online.
A complete AIM Master's Degree Program online application consists of the following:
On the first page of the form, you'll be asked to select your major. Choose IS: Applied Information Mgmt which is listed under Graduate School on the list of available degrees.
A $50.00 non-refundable fee is collected by the Office of Admissions for the Graduate Admissions Application. The Graduate School sets and collects this fee; no waiver is currently available.
Please retain your login credentials (username and password) in a safe place for future reference.
You must submit two sets of official transcripts as explained below. An official transcript is one sent directly to the Office of Admissions or to the UO department or professional school by the college or university attended. Send one set to the AIM Program and the other set to the UO Office of Admissions. There are no exceptions to this requirement. Failure to follow the instructions below may delay application review. Submit one official set of transcripts showing bachelor, master, and doctoral degrees earned to the UO Admissions Office. Do not send any other transcripts to the Admissions Office.
Office of Admissions
1217 University of Oregon
Eugene OR 97403-1217
Send a complete set of all official transcripts to the Applied Information Management Program. Send transcripts from all colleges and universities attended whether or not the courses resulted in a degree. We cannot consider your application file complete until we have received all transcripts—even those from schools where you took only a few courses.
1277 University of Oregon
Eugene, OR 97403-1277
Although courses from one school may be summarized on the transcript of another school, the AIM Program requires original transcripts from each institution. We cannot finish processing your application until we have all transcripts on file. If you have a degree from the University of Oregon, you do not need to send a transcript to the AIM Program or the UO Office of Admissions.
Students with degrees from foreign institutions must submit an official transcript plus a certified translation in English of the transcript to both the AIM Program and the UO Office of Admissions. There are no exceptions to submitting two official copies.
Ask for recommendations from employers or supervisors, professors, or someone who can speak specifically of your maturity and ability to do work at the graduate level. We require at least one recommendation from a current or recent supervisor. If you recently completed your undergraduate degree, we expect you to include one recommendation from a professor. Recommendations not completed online via GradWeb must come to us directly from the reviewer.

- Your educational and professional goals.
