Admissions & Recruitment
At the undergraduate direct from high school and transfer levels, student recruitment is coordinated by OU Admissions & Recruitment, which works in conjunction with the offices of Financial Aid, Bursar and Scholarships (among others). Admissions & Recruitment employs approximately 30 recruiters located in Oklahoma (on our Norman and Tulsa campuses), nationally in California, Colorado, Kansas, Illinois and Texas and in our National Scholars Programs and Diversity Enrichment Programs offices. The National Scholars Programs office is devoted to the recruitment of National Merit Scholars, State Regent Scholars, and Oklahoma Academic All-State selections. The Diversity Enrichment Programs office works to ensure all our recruitment efforts have a focus on first generation, geographically diverse, and unrepresented student populations. Throughout the year, Admissions & Recruitment hosts numerous on-campus events, daily tours and off-campus outreach opportunities (college fairs, one-on-one meetings, visits to high schools, etc.). The office also sends targeted communication via email, printed publications, social media, text messaging and a student call center and maintains a prospective student website.
In addition to efforts listed about, Admissions & Recruitment is also responsible for admitting all populations of students. Admissions & Recruitment provides services to current OU students, prospective students and other offices campus-wide in areas of Prior Learning Assessment/Advanced Standing Credit, Transfer Equivalencies (including Study Abroad), In-State/Out-of-State Tuition Policy and the Academic Common Market. We have a freshman team, a transfer team, an international team and a graduate team and we’re dedicated to the success and support of each other and our constituents.
