The admissions process at the University of Oklahoma seeks to identify applicants who will successfully complete a collegiate academic program and contribute to the diverse intellectual, cultural and social environment of the University. The University of Oklahoma welcomes inquiries regarding admission requirements and application procedures. The Office of Prospective Student Services will assist prospective undergraduate students — both freshmen and transfer — with the admission process by providing information on admission requirements, financial aid, scholarship opportunities, housing and student life. This office also serves as a visitor information center and provides tours of the campus to prospective students, their families and other University guests.
The Office of Prospective Student Services-Tulsa coordinates high school and transfer student services in Tulsa and other northeastern Oklahoma communities. Like its Norman campus counterpart, the Tulsa office provides students who are interested in any of the University’s academic programs with information on admission, housing, enrollment, financial aid and scholarships. This office also serves as a liaison with all OU campuses to arrange campus tours and departmental appointments for prospective students and their families.

To be considered for admission to the University of Oklahoma, applicants:
Applicants will be considered for admission using a holistic review and selection process which considers several factors that predict academic success (i.e. high school grade point average, high school course rigor, academic engagement, writing ability, leadership, and ACT/SAT scores).
Admission requirements are subject to change annually by the University of Oklahoma with the approval of the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, when it is determined to be in the best interest of the University and its students to do so. If it becomes necessary to limit enrollment, preference will be given to residents of Oklahoma. For the most current information on admission requirements, contact Prospective Student Services, (405) 325-2151 or 1-800-234-6868, or visit the following website: http://www.ou.edu/admissions.html.
Because success in college is enhanced by solid academic preparation in high school, completion of the following courses in high school is required before entering the University.
Applicants who are 21 years of age or older or on active military duty, who do not meet the stated performance and/or curricular requirements for admission to the University may be considered under the Adult Admission category. Careful attention will be given to an applicant’s written comments concerning background and educational goals, personal interviews, as well as letters of recommendation from school counselors, teachers, principals, employers or supervisors attesting to the applicant’s motivation and potential for academic success. An applicant’s academic record will also be reviewed for completion of the high school curricular requirements. Students admitted under the Adult Admission category must demonstrate proficiency to the satisfaction of the entering institution in the curricular area the student desires to pursue.
Prospective students should contact the Office of Admissions at (405) 325-2252 for further information.
Concurrent Enrollment at the University of Oklahoma is a program designed to allow high school juniors and seniors with exceptional abilities to enroll in college courses on a limited basis. High school students may thus accumulate college credits prior to completing high school.
To be eligible for the Concurrent Enrollment Program, students must be enrolled in an accredited high school and meet the following requirements:
1. You must have achieved junior or senior standing and be eligible to complete requirements for graduation from high school no later than the spring of your senior year, as attested by your high school principal.
2. You must meet the requirements found on the OU Recruitment Services website: http://www.ou.edu/content/go2/admissions/concurrent.html.
A student receiving high school level instruction at home or from an unaccredited high school must:
1. Be at least 17 years of age or older and score in the 70th percentile on the ACT (using Oklahoma norms) or the SAT (using national norms); or
2. Be 16 years of age and have achieved a composite score in the 83rd percentile on the ACT (using Oklahoma norms) or the SAT (using national norms).
For more information, visit http://www.ou.edu/content/go2/admissions/concurrent.html.
Interested students should apply online at http://www.ou.edu/go2/home.html, and submit a completed Concurrent Enrollment Recommendation form signed by the high school principal, a counselor, and parent, a high school transcript, and ACT or SAT scores.
Once admitted, a student’s combined enrollment in high school and at the University of Oklahoma may not exceed 19 credit hours during a fall or spring term. For this purpose, the University will assume that any high school course enrollment is the equivalent of three credit hours. Students may enroll in a maximum of nine credit hours during a summer term without being concurrently enrolled in high school classes during the summer. Students who wish to exceed this credit hour limit may petition the Dean of University College for permission to do so, up to a maximum of 24 semester hours in a regular semester.
The completion of high school curricular requirements is not mandatory for Concurrent Enrollment students for admission purposes. However, students may not enroll in college-level courses in a curricular area until the high school curricular requirement in that discipline has been satisfied through coursework or assessment. Concurrent Enrollment students may not enroll in zero-level courses designed to remove high school curricular deficiencies.
Following high school graduation, Concurrent Enrollment students must apply for regular freshman admission to the University of Oklahoma or they may transfer to another institution in the state system, provided that they have maintained a grade point average of 2.00 on a 4.00 scale at the University and meet the entrance requirements of the receiving institution, including high school curricular requirements.
Questions on the Concurrent Enrollment Program should be referred to the Office of Prospective Student Services.
Students who have not graduated from high school, regardless of age, whose composite score on the ACT (using Oklahoma norms) or combined verbal and mathematics score on the SAT (using national norms) places them in the 99th percentile of all students tested, may apply for admission to the University of Oklahoma. Admission will be determined based on test scores and an evaluation of the student’s level of maturity and ability to function intellectually and socially in the adult college environment.
Applicants are considered transfer students if they have attempted more than six semester hours of college-level work at another accredited college or university since graduation from high school. Students who complete college-level work while still in high school are not considered transfer students.
Transfer admission requirements are subject to change by the University of Oklahoma with the approval of the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, when it is determined to be in the best interest of the University and its students to do so. If it becomes necessary to limit enrollment, preference will be given to residents of Oklahoma.
Admission of transfer students is based on the following performance requirements and preparatory coursework in high school.
CURRICULAR REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION OF TRANSFER STUDENTS*
* If you have not completed the courses listed above in high school, you should do so before transferring to the University. With the exception of U.S. history and U.S. government, completion of remedial or college-level coursework in any of the subject areas in which a deficiency exists will also satisfy this requirement. A remedial mathematics course must be the equivalent of high school Algebra II. Remedial or precollege-level courses cannot be used to fulfill degree requirements.
Admission requirements for transfer students are subject to change annually by the University of Oklahoma with the approval of the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. For the most current information on performance requirements for transfer admission, contact the Office of Prospective Student Services (405) 325-2151 or 1-800-234-6868, or visit the following web site: http://www.ou.edu/content/admissions/transfer.html.
Transfer students with fewer than 24 semester hours attempted must meet performance requirements for first-time entering freshmen, as well as specified performance requirements on all transfer work attempted.
Transfer students who do not meet performance and/or curricular requirements are encouraged to contact the Office of Admissions for advice and counseling on alternative admission opportunities.
Your application must be RECEIVED by the Office of Admissions by the dates below. However, you are encouraged to apply as early as possible to maximize opportunities for housing and scholarships, financial aid and early enrollment.
HOW TO APPLY
Transfer students are encouraged to apply early in the semester prior to the term they wish to enter the University. Early admission allows students to maximize their opportunities for housing, financial aid, scholarships, and early enrollment. Admission decisions can often be made with the current term’s grades outstanding.
Once an applicant has been admitted to the University, the Office of Admissions performs an evaluation of any transfer credit. Students who are admitted with coursework in progress should submit a schedule of courses in progress, and arrange to have a final, official transcript sent to the Office of Admissions after completion of their last term. Once a complete and official transcript is received, the initial evaluation will be updated. Students will consult with an academic adviser at the time of enrollment to determine how their transfer work will apply toward a degree at the University of Oklahoma.
Transfer students who are undecided about attending OU can request a prospective student evaluation to help with the decision-making process. Potential applicants should submit or present in person the same official academic credentials required of transfer students applying for admission, along with the following information: desired term of matriculation at the University of Oklahoma; intended major; a complete list of collegiate institutions attended; mailing address, home and work or cell telephone numbers, and e-mail address.The information should be submitted to the Office Admissions. This office will perform an initial evaluation of all transfer credit and then an academic adviser will determine how the transfer work will apply toward a degree at OU. Prospective students should contact the Office of Admissions at (405) 325-2252 for further information concerning this service. Prospective student evaluations are not available for one month prior to the start of classes for each term, due to time constraints on admissions and advising staff.
Transfer Days is a yearly event, normally held in early spring, which provides an opportunity for transfer students who have already been admitted to the University for the upcoming summer or fall term to visit campus, be advised by academic counselors, and pre-enroll for the fall and/or summer terms. In addition to academic counselors, representatives from the University are also on hand to answer questions about housing, financial aid, scholarships and student activities. Other pre-enrollment periods for summer and fall terms occur throughout the late spring and summer months, so transfer students who are unable to attend Transfer Days will have ample opportunity to pre-enroll once they are admitted to the University. For further information, contact the Office of Prospective Student Services (405) 325-2151 or 1-800-234-6868.
The amount of credit granted to applicants for admission as transfer students depends upon the nature and quality of the applicant’s previous work, evaluated according to the academic requirements of the University, and the following provisions:
Students may apply for a second undergraduate degree at the University of Oklahoma, but are encouraged to investigate other options available through the Graduate College and other non-degree classifications before doing so. In addition to specific degree programs, the Graduate College offers teacher certification programs and an unclassified (non-degree) option, which allows students to take graduate and undergraduate courses before selecting a major field of graduate study.
Applicants for a second undergraduate degree must apply to a specific major and are not eligible for a second undergraduate degree in the major of their first degree.
General University policy, as well as specific college and school policies may restrict an applicant from applying for a second undergraduate degree in certain majors. Applicants should contact the Office of Admissions or the appropriate University degree-recommending college for further information on the pursuit of a second undergraduate degree.
Students must file an application for readmission if it has been more than one semester and a summer term since their last attendance at the University, or if they have completed a degree or were suspended after their last enrollment at OU. Application deadlines do apply to former students. Students who only enroll for summer terms (summer to summer students) do not need to reapply unless they graduate or break their continuous enrollment for a summer term. Students who have attended another college or university since last attending the University must file official transcripts from each institution attended. A student’s eligibility for readmission will be determined after an evaluation of all transferred and OU work has been made. Academic credit awarded by any division of the University of Oklahoma is considered resident credit, with the exception of credit completed by correspondence or advanced standing examination.
A student who has been suspended once for academic reasons from the University or any other institution in the state system of higher education may apply for (re)admission to the University for any semester or summer term beyond the semester in which he or she was suspended. Such (re)admission is not automatic but is decided on an individual basis. The student must submit an application for readmission, a letter of appeal, and all required transcripts to the Admissions Office by April 1 for a fall semester or summer session, and November 1 for a spring semester. The letter of appeal should include an explanation of the student’s previous academic record, information about the student’s activities since suspension, and reasons why an exception to the requirements for admission to the University should be made.A student who has been suspended twice from the University is not eligible for consideration for readmission until that student has attended another accredited college or university and raised his/her grade point average to the University’s retention standards.
Any person who is admissible to the University of Oklahoma and who wishes to take undergraduate courses without the intention of pursuing a degree may do so under the classification of Undergraduate Visitor/Special Student.
Undergraduate Visitor/Special Students must meet regular admission requirements to the University and are limited to nine semester hours of enrollment in this classification, unless an exception to this enrollment maximum is made by the President of the University or his or her designate. University retention standards also apply to this category of student. A person who is admitted as an Undergraduate Visitor/Special Student has no privileges beyond those which are available to all students. An Undergraduate Visitor/Special Student who wishes to enroll in a course with specific prerequisites must meet those prerequisites in the same manner as any other student.
Undergraduate Visitor/Special Students who later elect to enter a degree program will be expected to meet all of the regular requirements for that particular degree program and are urged to apply for regular (degree-seeking) admission as soon as a decision to pursue a degree has been made.If an Undergraduate Visitor/Special Student applies for admission to an undergraduate degree program, the work he/she has taken as a Special Student will be evaluated in the same manner as any other work submitted for evaluation. The particular degree-recommending college involved will determine how this work will apply toward the degree sought.
Post-baccalaureate non-degree are students who hold at least a bachelor’s degree and wish to take undergraduate courses without pursuing a degree, including students who wish to take undergraduate prerequisite courses for medical, dental, optometry, or veterinary school. Students who wish to take graduate level courses without pursuing a degree should apply as an Unclassified Graduate Student. Post-Baccalaureate Non-Degree Students are not required to submit academic credentials to be admitted.
Admission to a graduate program at the University of Oklahoma is based on an evaluation of an applicant’s overall record, experience, personal qualifications and proposed area of study. Applicants who apply to for graduate study at OU are applying for admission to the Graduate College and the graduate program in their proposed area of study. Inquiries related to graduate admission should be directed to the Office of Graduate Admissions, University of Oklahoma, 731 Elm Avenue, Room 318, Norman, OK 73019-4075, (405) 325-6765; FAX (405) 325-5345; e-mail: email@example.com.
Applications cannot be considered until all required materials have been submitted. Applications and supporting credentials are reviewed by the Office of Graduate Admissions, the graduate academic unit to which the applicant is seeking admission and the Graduate College. The final decision on admission to the Graduate College is made by the graduate dean. To be eligible for enrollment, the student must have been admitted to the University and to the Graduate College before the registration period ends for any given semester.
The Office of Graduate Admissions has charge of all matters pertaining to general admission to the University. Admission and enrollment in the Graduate College is governed by the graduate dean. All admissions to the Graduate College require that the student hold a baccalaureate degree or equivalent from an accredited college or university. Undergraduate applicants in their final semester at accredited colleges and universities may apply for admission to the Graduate College.
If admitted, a student must register for courses at the University of Oklahoma for the term of admission to retain active status. The student is subject to the regulations applicable during his/her first term of enrollment so long as continuous enrollment is maintained.
Application for Graduate Admission
Prospective students should apply online at http://www.ou.edu/admissions.html.
Required Application Materials
**Although the transcript from the LAST degree-conferring institution is the only transcript required at the time of application, some graduate programs prefer to see all degree transcripts. Therefore, the Office of Graduate Admissions recommends that students submit all degree-granting transcripts to the University.
Official transcripts should be submitted to the Office of Admissions, 1000 Asp Ave., Room 127, Norman, OK 73019-4076.
Academic Unit Requirements
Most graduate academic units or programs require that supplemental application materials, such as letters of recommendation, goal statements, etc., be submitted along with the application for admission. Students should consult with the graduate academic unit to which they are seeking admission to verify admission requirements and credentials needed. Although the Graduate College does not require the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or any other standardized tests, many academic units do require the GRE or other standardized tests.
For graduate applicants within the United States, there are no formal admissions application deadlines. However, applicants are encouraged to observe the following dates for submission of completed applications.
International graduate applicants outside the United States are subject to application deadlines. Those deadlines are as follows:
Most graduate academic units do have application deadlines, which are earlier than the dates listed. All applicants are strongly encouraged to contact the academic units to which they are seeking admission for the information regarding application deadlines.
Application deadlines can change between publications of this catalog. For the most current information on deadlines, go to http://www.ou.edu/admissions.html; under “Requirements,” click on the appropriate category of student.
Most graduate academic units employ graduate students on a part-time basis. Graduate assistantships are awarded and governed by individual academic units and appointing departments. Prospective students should contact the academic unit to which they are seeking admission to obtain information about, and applications for, graduate assistantships.
All seniors graduating from the University of Oklahoma who wish to apply for admission to a graduate program should apply online at http://www.ou.edu/admissions.html, no later than the final semester of their senior year. Graduate Academic Unit application deadlines apply to graduating seniors. University of Oklahoma graduate seniors are not required to submit transcripts with their graduate applications since these applicants are current students at the University.
If admitted, the graduating senior must inform the Graduate College if he/she fails to complete any requirements for his/her baccalaureate degree. These degree requirements must be completed by the term of the student’s admission to the Graduate College. If they are not completed in the proper time frame, the graduate admission will be cancelled and the student must reapply to the Graduate College and graduate academic program to which he/she was previously admitted.
Graduate students who are currently admitted and in good standing in graduate degree programs at other accredited institutions are welcome to take courses at the University of Oklahoma as a Graduate Visitor. In this status, a graduate student has all the rights and privileges of other graduate students except he or she is not pursuing a graduate degree at the University of Oklahoma. Should a Graduate Visitor decide to pursue a graduate degree here, he or she would be required to file another application and submit official copies of all transcripts. To be admitted as a Graduate Visitor, a prospective graduate student must submit the following information to the Office of Admissions:
Graduate students must file an application for readmission if it has been more than one year since their last attendance at the University. Students who only enroll for summer terms (summer to summer students) do not need to reapply unless they graduate or break their continuous enrollment for a summer term.Students who have attended another college or university since last attending the University must submit official transcripts from each institution attended to the University of Oklahoma’s Office of Admissions. A student’s eligibility for readmission will be determined after an evaluation of all transferred work is made. Readmitted students will be subject to the regulations in effect at the time of readmission.
All new applicants to the Graduate College for whom English is a second language (including those holding permanent resident status) are required to present evidence of proficiency in the English language prior to admission. The intent of this policy is to insure that students for whom English is not a native language have a reasonable chance to succeed academically based on their ability to comprehend and use spoken and written English.
Graduate applicants may satisfy the English proficiency requirement in one of several ways:
The University offers a Center for English as a Second Language (CESL) for students who are otherwise admissible to the University but do not meet the English proficiency requirement. CESL also offers English language classes for individuals who do not have plans to enter the University. For further information, call or write:
The Center for English as a Second Language
College of Continuing Education
1700 Asp Avenue, Norman, OK 73072-6400
(405) 325-6602, or 1-800-522-0772 ext. 6602.
In addition to the academic criteria used as the basis for the admission of students, the University shall consider the following non-academic criteria in deciding whether a student shall be granted admission: whether an applicant has been expelled, suspended, or denied admission or readmission by any other educational institution; whether an applicant has been convicted of a felony or lesser crime involving moral turpitude; whether an applicant’s conduct would be grounds for expulsion, suspension, dismissal or denial of readmission, had the student been enrolled at the University of Oklahoma. An applicant may be denied admission to the University if the University determines that there is substantial evidence, based on any of the instances described above, to indicate the applicant’s unfitness to be a student at the University of Oklahoma.
The University of Oklahoma encourages capable students to seek college credit for knowledge they may have acquired in a variety of ways. Complete information on the ways students may establish credit for extra-institutional learning at the University of Oklahoma is found in the brochure Credit by Advanced Standing at the University of Oklahoma. This brochure is available through the Office of Prospective Student Services, the Office of Admissions, and is also available on the Web at http://www.ou.edu/content/admissions/credit_by_advanced.html.
University of Oklahoma students who are enrolled (or pre-enrolled) and former students who are eligible to re-enroll may take an advanced standing examination for undergraduate credit, provided that they have not been enrolled in the course (or its equivalent) at an institution of college rank, and received a grade other than W. If a student is enrolled in a course in which he or she wishes to establish credit by advanced standing examination, the course must be dropped before any grade other than W is awarded.
A student enrolled (or pre-enrolled) in a course may earn credit in that course by advanced standing examination up to the end of the second week of class in a regular semester or the first week of a summer term. If a student earns credit in the course by examination, the student may drop the course enrollment with no fee assessment, provided the course is dropped within the first two weeks of class in a regular semester or the first week of class in a summer term. Beginning with the third week of class in a regular semester, or the second week of a summer term, registration fees will be refunded in accordance with the Oklahoma State Regents’ refund schedule.
The amount of advanced standing credit that may be awarded is subject to the graduation requirements of the University and the degree-recommending college in which a student will earn a degree. The dean of the student’s degree-recommending college at the University will determine how this credit applies toward a degree.
The neutral grade of satisfactory (SA) will be assigned to credit earned through national or University of Oklahoma departmental advanced standing examinations. A grade of satisfactory (SA) represents work of C quality or better.
Should a student fail an advanced standing examination, no grade will be recorded. However, the student is not eligible to retake the same examination and receive credit if the exam is passed. Students should consult the Office of Admissions or the Office of Independent Study to discuss other test options.
Credit by examination is limited to equivalent courses offered in residence at the University of Oklahoma, and the amount of credit earned by examination may not exceed that of the same course offered at the University of Oklahoma.
The regulations governing advanced standing examination credit that are mentioned above, apply to all of the advanced standing options available at the University.
Advanced standing examinations are under the general supervision of the University Registrar (and the chairperson of the department in the case of University departmental examinations).
The Academic Regulations Committee is responsible for hearing any appeals in hardship cases of students who do not meet the conditions and regulations governing advanced standing examinations.
Advanced standing credit may be earned through a variety of test options which include:
Students may establish advanced standing credit at the University of Oklahoma by a variety of avenues other than examination.
Military Service Credit
The University awards credit for educational experiences during military service according to the recommendations of the American Council on Education as published in the Guide to the Evaluation of Military Experiences in the Armed Services. The policies governing the acceptance of credit awarded for military experience toward satisfying degree requirements vary among the degree-recommending colleges of the University. Students should contact their college academic advisement office for specific information on the applicability of this type of credit toward degree requirements. General questions concerning the evaluation of educational experiences in the armed services should be directed to the Office of Admissions.
The grade of S (satisfactory) is assigned to all credit awarded for military training.
Students may submit the following military records to verify successful completion of military training. These documents should be submitted to the Office of Admissions for review.
The University awards credit for other extra-institutional learning based on recommendations made by the American Council on Education in its publication The National Guide to Educational Credit for Training Programs or transcripted on its Registry of Credit Recommendations (ROCR). Credit may also be awarded based on recommendation of the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York in its publication, College Credit Recommendations: The Directory of the National Program on Non-Collegiate Sponsored Instruction. Documents reflecting credit for training programs and other extra-institutional learning must be submitted to the Office of Admissions for evaluation. The dean of the college in which a student will earn a degree at the University will determine how this credit applies toward the degree. For further information, students should contact the Office of Admissions, 1000 Asp Avenue, Room 127, Norman, OK 73019-4076, (405) 325-2252.
Advanced standing credit posted on transcripts from institutions in the Oklahoma State System of Higher Education will transfer to the University subject to the same conditions as resident credit from these campuses.
Advanced standing credit posted on transcripts from all other institutions will be accepted by the University as long as the credit was earned through one of the advanced standing mechanisms approved by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. The dean of the college in which a student will earn a degree will determine how this credit applies toward the degree.
Students must report any college or university work taken at other institutions while they are current students at the University of Oklahoma. Whether this work is taken while registered in classes at the University, during a summer session, or during a semester and/or summer session while students have “stopped out” of the University temporarily, students must submit an official transcript to the Office of Admissions of all work undertaken. Failure to do so may result in suspension or permanent dismissal from the University.
