The first step toward pursuing your bachelor’s degree is to review the admissions criteria and then simply apply. Each application is read thoroughly, thoughtfully, and fairly to evaluate all-around excellence.

To be admitted to the aviation program, you first must be admitted to the University of Oklahoma. Students may enroll in aviation courses while in University College. To be fully admitted as an aviation student, you must earn a minimum of 24 hours of college credit and possess a combined retention GPA of 2.25.

Admissions requirements and decisions

Demonstrated academic achievement is the primary factor in OU's first-year admission decisions. The academic review focuses on three criteria:

  • Grade point average (GPA) in core academic courses
  • Rigor of course selection, and
  • ACT and/or SAT scores

All applications also are reviewed for college preparatory courses in English, mathematics, science, social studies, and foreign language.

OU's Admissions Committee and Office of Admissions staff have identified a number of additional factors that may be considered in admission decisions or merit scholarship awards.

These include:

  • Excellence in academic achievement, intellectual pursuits, and creative endeavors
  • An understanding of and respect for intellectual, social, and cultural diversity
  • Commitment to citizenship through public service, community involvement, school activities, leadership, and/or family
  • Integrity and maturity, and
  • Recognition of benefits of a culturally and intellectually diverse academic community.

Additional Factors in Admission Decisions

The University's goal is to build a first-year class of highly qualified, intellectually curious and actively involved students who have demonstrated high levels of integrity, maturity, and commitment to serving their communities.

OU's Admission Committee appreciates the importance of considering other factors beyond academic achievement to discern an applicant's overall abilities. Therefore, a more comprehensive review of a student's entire application file will occur after the initial academic review. The University will consider information gathered from many sources beyond a first-year applicant's transcript and test scores including, but not limited to:

  • Application essay and short answers
  • School and community activities, leadership positions and awards, and
  • Participation in athletics and work experience, summer activities, and special circumstances.
