If you have previously applied, you can return to your applicant profile by clicking “Sign In” on the right hand side of the Current Opportunities webpage and entering the email address and password you used to set up your account. Once your profile is set up, you will use the same email address and password to log in to the applicant portal and apply for positions, manage applications, and view the status of your applications.

Applications and application materials are not editable after they have been submitted, so you will need to withdraw your application and reapply with updated materials. If applications are still being accepted for the position, you may log in to the applicant portal by clicking “Sign In”, then click the red “Withdraw” button next to the application you’d like to withdraw. Then reapply with updated materials. Your previous application and materials will not be saved, so you will need to complete all parts of the application again.
Updates to application materials are not normally accepted after an application deadline has passed. If there are significant changes to your experience or education that affect your qualifications for the job after the application deadline has past, please email email@example.com to request assistance. Allowing updated materials to be submitted after the close of the deadline is at the discretion of the posting department.
Log in to the applicant portal by clicking “Sign In,” then access your incomplete application and click “complete application.”
Incomplete applications are deleted from the system within 15 days; if your application has been deleted and applications are still being accepted for the position, you will need to complete all parts of the application again in order to apply.
If I started an application but didn’t submit it, can I still submit it after the posting deadline has passed?
As long as the position is still listed on the Current Opportunities webpage, it is still possible to submit an application. However, applications submitted after the deadline may not be considered; this will be at the discretion of the hiring unit.
You may log in to the applicant portal by clicking “Sign In,” and entering your email address and password.
If you can’t remember your password, click on the “Forgotten your password?” link on the Current Opportunities webpage. If you can’t remember the email address you used to create your account, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.

11:55pm Pacific Time on the date listed on the posting, unless there is another time listed in the vacancy announcement. Applications must be completed AND submitted by that time.
You can log in to the applicant portal by clicking “Sign In” and entering your email address and password. Then, you can check the “Current Status” listed under the job information under your application.
How long does it take departments to review applications? When will I know if I moved on in the search process?
Review time will vary depending upon a variety of factors, including the number of applicants, complexity of the position, and availability of the search committee members. We make every effort to notify candidates as quickly as possible, typically via email, as decisions are made throughout the interview process. You can check the current status of your application by logging in to the applicant portal by clicking “Sign In” and entering your email address and password. Then, you can check the “Current Status” listed under the job information under your application.
Typically, the DD-214 is required. UO will provide you with a secure method to upload this document after you have completed your application and designated on the voluntary form that you are a veteran. This allows us to review your DD-214, a sensitive document, confidentially and separately from your application materials. If you do not have a DD-214, please contact email@example.com.
I’ve already submitted my DD-214 to document my eligibility for veterans’ preference for a previous application. Why am I being asked to submit it again?
Veteran’s Preference is applied on a job-by-job basis, which allows you to decide whether or not to request preference on every job for which you apply. You will need to upload your DD-214 or other accepted eligibility documentation every time you apply for a job and designate that you are a veteran or disabled veteran under the Oregon Veterans’ Preference statute.
