All incoming freshmen/ first-year students are required to attend the FDE by the end of their first academic year. The OU FDE uses research based curriculum to help students prepare not only for future employment, but provides a baseline skill set that will help students make the most of their OU educational experience and fully engage as a member of the OU Family.
Students can fulfill the requirement by attending one of two options:
• A three-part summer orientation experience during Camp Crimson
• A three-hour standalone training during the student's first academic year
If you missed your assigned FDE for the school year, please see below for additional sessions.
