You are considered an incoming student from the time you are admitted until your first semester at OU begins. Incoming students should contact the Office of Admissions at firstname.lastname@example.org. You might also need to speak with Housing and Food Services or the Student Financial Center about other University business. Once your first semester begins, (fall or spring) your status will change to a current student.
