Admission requirements

At Oklahoma State University, we're committed to helping qualified students get admitted to OSU to begin earning their college degrees. Please note that the following requirements pertain to undergraduate students only. Graduate applicants should consult Graduate College.


Admission standards

International students qualify for assured admission if they meet the following criteria:

  • English language proficiency exam scores*
    • iBT TOEFL Score 61+ OR IELTS Academic Score 5.5+ OR Duolingo English Test Score* 85+ 


  • High School GPA 3.0+ (based on a 4.0 scale)

*The current COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in widespread English testing center closures in impacted regions. In response to this global crisis, OSU will now temporarily accept Duolingo English Test (DET) results from spring and fall 2023 applicants who are unable to take the TOEFL or IELTS due to exam cancellations.


Please contact us with any other questions or concerns regarding testing options at


* OSU offers conditional admission to students who meet all admission requirements except the English language proficiency requirement.

* The English language proficiency requirement may be waived if you have graduated from an accredited high school where English is the primary language of instruction in a country where English is the primary language. This is determined based on information from your application and transcripts.

* English language proficiency requirement will be waived for international students who have or will have attended English-speaking high schools located in the U.S. for 3 or more years.

* Official TOEFL and IELTS Academic exam scores are valid for two years from the date of the original exam. If your scores are more than two years old, you will need to take a new exam to be considered for admission.

* According to policy, results of the TOEFL taken at international testing centers and special testing centers will be accepted. Results of the TOEFL taken at institutional testing centers will only be accepted by the administering institution.
