Regular admission standards include a 22 ACT or SAT equivalent and a cumulative 3.0 GPA. The College Board provides an online SAT Score Converter so that you can see how specific scores from the old and new tests compare to each other. Oklahoma City University recalculates every high school grade point average on a standard 4.0 scale. All Pre-AP, Honors, and AP courses are weighted on a 5 point scale (A=5, B=4, C=3, D=1). Our calculation will be used for admission and scholarship purposes.
Applicants must have a minimum of 2.0, be in good standing from a regionally accredited university and must meet all OCU requirements. Transfer students with 29 or fewer hours of transferable credit must submit an official high school transcript and ACT/SAT scores to Oklahoma City University in order to be considered for admission.
Incoming summer/fall 2016 transfer students with a conferred Associate of Science (AS) or Associate in Arts (AA) degree (not an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree) from an accredited college or university can enter OCU as "general education completed." However, two general education requirements that are specific to our college culture and enrich the OCU experience - Biblical Literature or World Religions, and a service learning course - if not present on the transcript, must be completed while matriculated at OCU.
Admission to Oklahoma City University's master's degree programs is open to all students holding bachelor's degrees from regionally accredited colleges or universities and meeting the criteria indicating high potential to succeed in graduate-level work. Doctoral programs may require a master's degree. Please see the Academic Degree Programs section in the graduate catalog for specific admission information.
