The fall 2023 Outstanding Senior applications are currently open and due Wednesday, September 20th by 11:59 p.m.

Each fall, the Sooner Parents organization recognizes the All-Around Outstanding Senior at the University.  Additionally, Sooner Parents presents an Award of Merit to the Outstanding Senior of each undergraduate college as selected by the college dean. The selection procedure for the Outstanding Senior in each college is at the discretion of each dean. All applicants must be expected to graduate in December 2023, May 2024, or summer 2024; earned a cumulative 3.25 grade point average or higher, and be enrolled full-time in fall 2023 – unless they need a specific number of hours to graduate or are enrolled in an accelerated degree program. Applications will be reviewed by a selection committee comprised of faculty, staff, and students. There is no interview in this selection process.  Recipients will be recognized, with their college dean, at a reception and ceremony tentatively scheduled for 1:00 p.m. Friday, November 10th in Gould Hall.
