Congratulations on your admissions to the University of Oklahoma! Below you'll find a complete list of to-do items you'll need to complete before your first day of classes at OU.
Visit account.ou.edu and click “New to OU? Set up your OU account.” You'll need your Sooner ID number (included in your admission letter) to create your account. Once your account has been set up, you'll see your OUNet ID (usually 4 letters and 4 numbers) and your OU email address. Take a moment to write these down along with the password that you set up. You'll use these to access and complete your post-admission checklist!
This OU account will follow you through your time at OU and will also provide access to OU resources such as enrollment, grades, course materials, computer labs, OU Libraries resources, and more. This OU account is also what you’ll use to sign in to your official OU email at outlook.office.com/ou.edu. If you need assistance, please call OU IT at (405) 325-4357.
You will find information on all these steps in OU Bound, which you can access by logging into oubound.ou.edu. Here are the things you must do to join the OU Family:

After scheduling your orientation with your academic department, download our PowerPoint presentation (about 17 minutes long) to become familiar with the enrollment process and learn about resources available to you as a student. Feel free to pause the presentation to write down information or go back to previous slides as necessary.
Annually more than two out of three OU students are awarded some type of financial assistance. This aid is a combination of scholarships, grants, loans, work-study and tuition waivers. To ensure that you keep all of your options open for covering your cost to attend OU, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). For more detailed information, visit ou.edu/sfc.
Housing options are available through our OU Housing and Food Services. Many transfer students enjoy living in our new ivy-league style residential colleges or in our campus apartments, Traditions Square. Depending on your age and credit hours you may be required to live in on-campus housing. Visit housing.ou.edu to learn about on-campus housing.
Transfer students who have at least 24 hours of college credit from an accredited institution after graduating from high school are exempt from living on campus (concurrent, dual credit, advanced placement or CLEP hours do not apply to this 24 hour requirement).
Be sure to mark August 12 through 19 on your calendar for OU’s Camp Crimson experience! Camp Crimson is OU's official welcome to all new students. You will have a week full of connecting with other new students, learning about OU’s history and traditions, and getting to know campus!
Beginning May 1, let us know you'll be at Camp Crimson by logging into OU Bound and RSVP'ing. While Camp Crimson is highly encouraged for incoming transfer students, it is not required. The Camp Crimson sign up window will be open from May 1 - July 1, 2022.
Transfer students have two options for attending Camp Crimson:
8 day experience - August 12 - 19, 2022 ($375)
5 day experience - August 15 - 19, 2022 ($275)
Costs will be billed to your Bursar account.
Please choose the 8 day experience option if you plan to participate in Panhellenic or IFC recruitment (additional costs apply), Pride Camp (band), ROTC training, or International Student Orientation. Don't worry - these programs are partnering with Camp Crimson and you will be able to attend and participate in both programs.
To register, visit your OU Bound portal. The deadline to register is July 1, 2022.
To learn more, visit ou.edu/campcrimson.
Submit your final high school transcript to fulfill foreign language requirements and/or if you're filing the FAFSA.
The items listed below are not mandatory to complete prior to becoming a Sooner, however, we encourage you to review the list as some items may be of interest to you:
Through OU's Honors College, you can enroll in courses taught by nationally acclaimed faculty. Classes are limited to fewer than 22 students, and honors students participate in undergraduate research opportunities, study aboard and excel in this supportive community. For admission requirements and to apply, visit ou.edu/honors.
If you live in student housing, you will need to purchase a parking permit. OU offers plenty of parking spaces only a short walk to where you live. If you choose to live off campus, you may purchase a parking permit or park for free at the Lloyd Noble Center and shuttle to campus. View our shuttle times and routes.
OU Athletics will notify incoming students via their OU email in August about purchasing student football and men's basketball season tickets. All other OU sports are free to attend for students. Just show up, show your official student ID, and support the Sooners! View complete information for student football and men's basketball season tickets at soonersports.com.
