Undergraduate International Admissions Process

  1. Complete the application for admission.  If you have any questions during the application, visit with an OU Extended Campus Admissions Specialist via email at pacsregistration@ou.edu
  2. Pay the non-refundable $90.00 USD application fee.
  3. Submit your credentials.
    • If your country of citizenship, birth, or education is not on the list of Approved Native English-Speaking Countries, then an official TOEFL or IELTS exam will be required.  
    • All official (original) academic credentials, including original translations should be sent directly to the OU Extended Campus. After OU Extended Campus has received your application for admissions, our Admissions Specialist will contact you about which credentials (including TOEFL/IELTS exam) are required and how to submit them.
    • An OU Extended Campus Admissions Specialist will evaluate and verify your academic credentials.

Once OU Extended Campus receives all required materials, Admissions will begin processing your application. Admissions will send a decision letter to the email address provided on the application.
