Getting Admitted to the College of Atmoshperic & Geographic Sciences

Step 1:

In addition to the requirements you met to be admitted to OU, you must also meet requirements for admission to A&GS.  These requirements are:

  • Successful completion of at least 24 semester credit hours of college credit
  • A minimum 2.25 retention grade point average
  • A declared major in Environmental Sustainability, Geography, Geographic Information Science, or Meteorology.

You will be advised in University College through the spring semester of your freshman year.  After the successful completion of your freshman year, your academic records will be transferred to the College of Atmospheric and Geographic Sciences, provided you meet the requirements listed above.

Until these requirements are met, you will be a student in University College, which is not a degree-granting college.  Incoming transfer students with at least 24 semester credit hours earned and a minimum 2.50 retention grade point average will be directly admitted to the College of Atmospheric & Geographic Sciences.

Step 2:

Once you are fully admitted to A&GS, you will be assigned a professional advisor for semester-to-semester advising.  Please note that advising in the College of Atmospheric and Geographic Sciences is mandatory.  Your college advisor will advise you into appropriate classes for the upcoming semester, lift your advising flag and provide any Overrides (special permission to enroll in a class) you might need to enroll in specific A&GS major classes.

Step 3:

Before each enrollment period, review your academic record on Degree Navigator ( to determine which courses you plan to take in the upcoming academic term. Check on course dates and times on the enrollment system at

Then schedule an appointment with your advisor on iAdvise.
