COVID-19 Admissions Updates

Due to growing concerns about the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made the difficult decision to cancel all campus tours and events through May 11. At this point, we hope to resume campus tours beginning May 13. Our public health experts will continue to closely monitor the situation, and we will provide updates as available on our website and on our social media pages (@go2ou). More updates and resources from the University of Oklahoma can also be found at ou.edu/coronavirus.

The deadline to submit your enrollment commitment and secure a spot in the incoming freshman class has been extended to June 1. 

The OU Office of Admissions and Recruitment will still process applications as normal. We do not expect any delays in returning admissions decisions at this time. However, we are unable to mail admissions boxes at this time, so you will first learn of your decision electronically. You will still receive a box at a later date.

The OU Office of Admissions and Recruitment will still process scholarship and financial aid offers as normal. We do not expect any delays in sending this information at this time.

The Student Financial Center staff will still be available to answer your questions. We encourage you to contact us at (405) 325-9000 or sfc@ou.edu. You can also get in touch with your admissions counselor with questions. 

We will allow for retesting on standardized exams through July 31 instead of the original deadline of April 30.

You can reschedule your visit for for May 13 or later at tour.ou.edu. In the meantime, we encourage you to check out our OU Virtual Tour and explore some of the same great spaces that you would have seen on campus. You can also virtually follow OU tour guide, Ryleigh, as she shows you a preview of the University of Oklahoma campus. 

Following recommendations from the CDC, we have made the difficult decision to postpone Sooner Saturday until this fall. The fall event will be open to high school seniors and transfer students, and we will keep you updated as more details are finalized.

Register for a virtual meeting with an OU admissions counselor to have a personal conversation about your path to becoming a member of the OU Family. Time slots are available on weekdays between 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. CT.

These will not occur as on-campus events this year. However, we are working to develop virtual event programming and will let you know when this is finalized.

Since the University has decided to transition to online classes through the end of the semester as a precautionary measure due to the COVID-19 virus, students and visitors are being asked not to come to the campus for events through this time period as well. Please DO NOT cancel your Transfer Enrollment Days appointment. We are working on moving the event to an online/virtual format. We will reach out again soon with more details. If you have any questions, reach out to the transfer team at transfer@ou.edu or (405) 325-2151.

As of right now, updates to your housing contract are still due May 15.

Student health and safety are OU's top priority right now. On top of routine cleaning, OU has amplified cleaning and disinfecting practices across campus to add an extra layer of protection against COVID-19, including in high-use areas like the residence halls. Housing Operations is cleaning with disinfectant throughout all areas and touch points at least four times a day. All surfaces and keyboards in computer labs are sanitized continuously throughout the day.

There are no updates to the Camp Crimson schedule at this time.
