Step Two: Complete Online Application and Pay Application Fee 

Complete the online graduate application form and pay the non-refundable $50 application processing fee. As soon as you have completed the required information, please submit your application. Your application will be reviewed when it is complete and all required materials have been received.

Application Processing

Once OU receives all materials (Steps 1-3), Admissions will begin processing your application. OU Extended Campus will make a recommendation and send it to OU’s Graduate College for final review and an official admission decision. Admissions will email a decision letter to the address listed on the application.

Average processing time is two to three weeks.
