Remote Pre-Term Checklist

Remote Pre-Term Checklist

The remote pre-term checklist provides important information about what you will need to complete before beginning your classes. Please use this checklist to ensure you have no holds on your student account. Please contact if you have any questions.


Claim your Duck ID

Your Duck ID is your primary account for technology access on campus. You will use your Duck ID login for email, Canvas, on-campus Wi-Fi, and many other services. When you claim your Duck ID, you will create the username and password for your account (

To claim your Duck ID, you will need to log in to DuckWeb using your UO ID (95X-XXX-XXX) and your Personal Access Code (PAC).

You can find your UO ID number and PAC in the admission packet that was sent to you after you were admitted as an AEI student. When you log into DuckWeb for the first time, you will use the PAC you received in the mail, but you will then be asked to change your PAC and answer several security questions. You will then be able to claim your Duck ID and create your username and password.

You can find more information in the UO Service Portal.

☐ Register for Orientation

All new AEI students are required to participate in the AEI New Student Orientation. Admitted students will receive an email with a link to register for orientation 2-3 months before the start of the term. Please check your email daily. Orientation begins the Friday before the first day of classes.

☐ Take the Online English Placement Test

After you register for orientation, the UO Testing Center will send you an email with important information about taking a required online English Placement Test before the start of the term. This test will help us put you in the correct classes.

It is important that you make an appointment to take the test as soon as possible. The Testing Center can become very busy before the start of the term and appointments may be limited if you wait. Please check your email daily and open the email from the UO Testing Center as soon as you receive it. Then follow the instructions to schedule a test session right away.
