Still have questions about admissions? Check the Graduate Admissions FAQ.

Step One: Apply

  1. A bachelor’s degree, equivalent, or higher from a regionally accredited institution.
  2. Other admission requirements, including but not limited to GPA, letters of recommendation, statement of purpose, and resume may also be required. For more information, please contact the department to which you are applying.

To apply for admission to a OU College of Professional and Continuing Studies graduate program, complete the OU application and submit the $50 application fee. If you are a current OU employee, contact the College of Professional and Continuing Studies Registration and Records to inquire about an application fee waiver.

After we receive and review all of the required materials, the application is forwarded to the Graduate College of the University of Oklahoma for final review and official admission.

When applying, be prepared to upload all required materials (degree conferring transcripts and other materials as requested by the academic department, such as a statement of goals). The application fee is mandatory for submission.

For the application process, you may upload a copy of your transcript which shows your degree posted. Uploading an unofficial transcript helps expedite the admission process. However, the University of Oklahoma requires your official transcript soon after admission. See Step Two for details.

Step Two: Send Official Transcripts 

If you are offered admission and accept our offer of admission, you are required to submit an official transcript from the college or university at which you have earned your most recent degree.

If you are a first-time applicant to a College of Professional and Continuing Studies North America and Europe program, you will be granted an opportunity to accept the terms and conditions of "provisional" admission status. This status is defined as allowing an applicant to complete up to three hours of coursework, while awaiting the final admission decision to be reached by the department. An applicant's "provisional" status will expire after 30 days, if not utilized by then. 

Transcripts should be sent to:

OU College of Professional and Continuing Studies Registration and Records

ATTN: Transcripts

1700 Asp Avenue, Room B-1

Norman, OK 73072-6400

If the colleges or universities offer electronic transcripts, you may request that the paperless version be sent directly to pacsGRadmissions@ou.edu.

Please select Advanced Programs for College of Professional and Continuting Studie North America or Europe, and if you are enrolling in a fully online program, choose Extended Campus as your campus (NOT Norman or Tulsa Campus).

College of Professional and Continuting Studies North America and Europe have rolling admissions with applications accepted year-round.

*The University of Oklahoma campus closes for Winter Break. Applications are not processed during this time.
