Transfer Student Days

Transfer Student Days at the University of Oklahoma are specially planned to provide an opportunity for those transfer students who have already been admitted to the University for an upcoming summer or fall term to be advised and pre-enroll for the fall and/or summer. In addition, representatives from the University are also on hand to answer questions about housing, financial aid, scholarships and student activities. Other pre-enrollment periods for summer and fall terms occur throughout the late spring and summer months, so transfer students who are not admitted in time for the last Transfer Day will have ample opportunity to pre-enroll once they are admitted to the University. For further information, contact the Office of Prospective Student Services (405) 325-2151 or 1-800-234-6868 or e-mail

College-Specific Transfer Information

It is critical for all transfer students to understand that admission to The University of Oklahoma does not guarantee that you will be able to pursue the major that you have selected. Many of OU's colleges, departments, and degree programs have additional requirements beyond University admission requirements that must be met in order for you to be accepted into your major program or take the coursework necessary to complete your degree. It is important that you familiarize yourself with your degree college's requirements by clicking on the appropriate college below.

All transcripts, test scores, correspondence or other materials submitted in conjunction with an application for admission become the permanent property of the University and will not be returned. Should you need copies of your transcripts for other purposes, you must obtain them from the originating institution(s).
