OU Admissions Process

New freshman scholarship deadline: December 15

Students talking to a faculty member

At the University of Oklahoma, we look at the whole person; the individual. Yes, we will review your test score, GPA and class rank and what classes you chose to take…. but what is the rest of your story? How do you define yourself? What makes your journey unique? How do you spend your time? What are your goals for making the world a better place?

The Sooner family is special. Exciting things are happening here. We hope you consider being a part of it.
