Great question! While the industry standard for oil changes used to be 3,000 miles between changes, the evolution of both cars and oil means that you can now realistically wait between 5,000 and 10,000 miles between oil changes without causing any damage to your car.
Remember—this is the standard for newer cars. If you have an older car, you may need to be more vigilant about changing the oil.
Best of luck, and hope the oil change goes well!
