Freshmen application steps
These important steps in the application process must be completed to begin your journey at OSU. Just remember, your application for admission is also your application for scholarships. To process your application quickly, we suggest that you complete the application online. You can log back into your account and finish at a later time.
Once again, your application for admission is also your application for scholarships.
While you are not required to complete the essay questions, we suggest you answer them to the best of your ability so that you will be considered for all applicable scholarship opportunities. We want to know as much about you as we can. Be sure to include any organizations you're part of, honors you've received, jobs you've had or service hours you've completed on your leadership and involvement resume.

Have your high school send Oklahoma State University your official transcript.
Send Oklahoma State University your official scores from ACT and SAT when you take the test by including OSU's official code of 3424 for ACT and 6546 for SAT. We also accept test scores reported on your official high school transcript.
*Students can indicate if they have been unable to take an ACT or SAT test due to COVID-19 on their application for admission. Students can apply with only a high school transcript and may be considered for admission by exception for the fall and spring 2021 semesters. Students are required to submit all available and future test scores. Students who apply without a test score need to submit essays and fill out the leadership resume as part of their completed application for admission.
Currently, consideration for most OSU scholarships will require a test score submission. OSU does not consider the essay component of the ACT/SAT for admission criteria listed above. Starting with the September 2020 national ACT, OSU will accept the official superscore provided by ACT for both admission and scholarship consideration.
