Admission Requirements

Freshmen

We are aware of the current difficulties facing students as they apply for college this year, from testing availability to the impact of COVID-19 on success in the classroom. Please know that we are evaluating our admissions process and deadlines to provide as much flexibility as possible when working with Fall 2021 students. Should you have any concerns about your situation, please do not hesitate to contact your admissions counselor. We are here to help and cannot wait to get to know you!

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.
