New Sooner Enrollment Program

Welcome to the Sooner Family! New students participate in the New Sooner Enrollment Program, which is a half-day program to help them build the foundation for their first year at OU. Parents and guardians are encouraged to attend and will attend a Parent/Family session while students meet with their academic advisors and enroll in their first semester of classes. Together, families and students meet with a money coach to review the student's financial success plan. Students may choose to schedule their enrollment appointment on a day with a Major Focus or Exploratory Major session of interest. Sessions are designed to help students declare a major with confidence.

University College sessions are May 17 - Aug. 4 and OU Scholars sessions are May 17 - July 11. Follow the steps below to prepare for and schedule your New Sooner Enrollment Program appointment. We look forward to welcoming you to the Sooner Family during the New Sooner Enrollment Program!

First Year Learning Communities

New students have the opportunity to enroll in various first year experiences. First Year Learning Communities are valuable first year experience courses. Students taking FYLCs are enrolled in "Gateway to College Learning" (the hub course) and one or more common courses, such as: Math, Chemistry, Biology, and Journalism. This allows for greater integration of the common course material, natural study groups, and greater collaborative learning. Students in FYLCs report greater success in the common courses than those students enrolled in the same common courses who do not take an FYLC or other first year experience course.
