A student who is suspended or expelled from the University of Oregon (University or UO) or who is disqualified for enrollment by the Scholastic Review Committee or Admissions Office is denied all privileges of student status at this institution.

No student may participate in intercollegiate athletic competition unless the student has been certified eligible by the Faculty Athletics Representative. A student is ineligible for any such certification unless the student is currently enrolled as a regular full-time student in good standing, carrying at least 12 term hours of work, unless the student meets the requirements for an exception to this policy under NCAA or Pac-12 bylaws.

To be eligible to hold elective or appointed office in the Associated Students of the University of Oregon (ASUO), students must be a member of the ASUO and also be enrolled in eight undergraduate or the equivalent graduate credit hours (except during summer term) at the University. All elected and appointed officers and candidates for election shall meet additional requirements as set forth in the ASUO Constitution or By-Laws. The ASUO shall notify the Vice President for Student Life prior to the effective date of any changes in eligibility requirements.

Officers of all registered and all recognized student organizations of the University must be members of the ASUO and meet any additional requirements set by the ASUO.
