How can I enroll in a course through the OU College of Professional and Continuing Studies?
Once your enrollment window is open, please use the online form below to request permission to enroll in an OU College of Professional and Continuing Studies course.

Please verify the information on your form before submitting for quicker processing. Once your form is submitted, it is routed to a college advisor and can typically be processed within one to two business days. Once enrollment permission has been added, you will receive an automated email notification and can finalize your enrollment online like usual.
What if I need to drop an OU College of Professional and Continuing Studies course?
Eight-week courses have a one-week, free, drop period. Students may drop a course any time prior to the course start date or any time before 5 p.m. Friday during the first week of the course. To drop a course, please email an OU College of Professional and Continuing Studies advisor.
What if the OU College of Professional and Continuing Studiescourse I want to take is full?
OU College of Professional and Continuing Studies courses do not have a waitlist function. A college advisor can add the enrollment permission, so that you can enroll should a spot become available. However, you will need to keep an eye on the schedule to watch for an opening. Closed course permissions are reserved for College of Professional and Continuing Studies majors only, so even with professor permission, a college advisor cannot add you to a closed course. Please have a backup course planned, as we cannot guarantee that your preferred course will be open.
How does this class fit into my degree?
Students should consult with their academic advisor before enrolling in any course outside of their major. Your advisor will be able to tell you if the course you want can be used in your degree.
