Your first steps as a newly admitted Sooner includes activating your OU account, getting advised, and enrolling in your first semester of courses at OU!
Visit one.ou.edu/activate. 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 OU Net 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.office365.com. If you need assistance, please call OU IT at (405) 325-4357.
First-time freshmen and transfer students admitted to University College who wish to enroll for a Fall semester will participate in New Sooner Orientation.
