How to Get Advised
Activating your OUNet Account
Your OUNet account is created when you are admitted to the University, and must be activated to access online services such as OU email, enrollment, tuition payment, course management, computer labs, and grades. Your ou.edu email address is the primary means of communication concerning enrollment, financial aid, scholarships, and other important campus notifications.
To activate your account, go to account.ou.edu and click on “New to OU? Set up your OU Account.” Follow the instructions provided on that site.
Advising and Enrollment of New Students
First-time entering freshmen and transfer students who are admitted to University College who wish to enroll in classes for the Fall 2017 semester will participate in the 2017 New Sooner Enrollment Program. A postcard about the 2017 New Sooner Enrollment Program will be mailed to newly admitted students to University College. First-time entering freshmen and transfer students admitted to University College who do not participate in the 2017 New Sooner Enrollment Program will be eligible for advisement and enrollment for fall classes following the conclusion of the program in August. For questions, students may contact University College at 405-325-3521.

Continuing students can go to Academic Advising to view advising directions for each individual college and additional requirements.
