Admission Requirements

Freshmen

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. 

Transfers

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.

International
