The Summer 2022 term financial aid disbursement date has been affected by the schedule change to move straight to Summer term without a Winter-Spring Session.  Be advised that if you are enrolled in the first Summer session beginning May 16, 2022, your financial aid will be disbursed on May 23, 2022.  This is approximately one week after the start of classes.  We hope this notice allows you to be prepared in advance for a delayed disbursement.

For students not enrolled in the first May session, disbursement will occur 10 days prior to the first day of the student’s first course.

Summer Semester

The summer semester at the University of Oklahoma provides you with a unique opportunity to get ahead, stay on track or catch up while still enjoying some downtime.

Students may enroll in up to 9 hours of summer courses (course restrictions may apply) to help ease fall and spring semester course load. Many are able to get into that “always full” required course during the summer semester, while others appreciate being able to singularly focus on a difficult subject. You also can choose to pursue special topics during the summer — like Study Abroad, intensive study and practicum experiences — that may not easily fit into fall or spring course schedules.

Most summer classes held on campus are small, allowing students and faculty to enjoy more informal interactions in a relaxed environment. In addition, during the summer months, all students may live on campus, where friendships are formed, programming and activities are provided, and easy parking is available. Understanding that you look forward to a slower pace during summertime, OU’s intensive accelerated summer course schedule allows you to earn quick credit hours while providing ample time for enjoying summer downtime and fun.

Taking just one class every summer allows many students to graduate one semester sooner than planned!
