Q: What if I am a student at the Health Sciences Center?
A: The Sooner Standard Award is also recognized at the HSC. Students at the HSC Campus log their hours through self-service (https://ouhsc.edu/selfserve). Logging hours serves as the opt-in for the program, so they do not need to apply for the award. Each semester, we pull the logs and filter the information by graduating students. Students who are eligible are then contacted about the award!
