About University College

University College includes Advising, the Assessment Center, the Center for Student Advancement, Freshman Programs, and the Student Learning Center to serve OU students. We're also the academic home of OU's ROTC. Founded in 1942, University College was one of the first academic units in the United States to focus on meeting the special needs of first year students. Since then, many colleges and universities have patterned their first year experience (FYE) programs on the University College model.

University College moved to the new Lissa and Cy Wagner Student Academic Services Center in Spring 2009. Wagner Hall also houses the Writing Center, the Graduation Office, Project Threshold, and study rooms and is at the center of a developing "student services district" in the middle of campus seeking to improve student success, retention, and graduation rates.
