You're on your way to becoming an official Cowboy.

The first step is completing the online application — which covers admission to the university and all university-sponsored scholarships.

100 percent online degrees

Oklahoma State University is proud to offer 100 percent online degree for those who need a more flexible schedule and are unable to attend classes in Stillwater. Whether you're looking to complete your bachelor's degree or ready to begin, an OSU degree can help you reach your career goals.

What's required?

You'll need these things to be considered for admission:
  1. Completed admission/scholarship application
  2. $40 nonrefundable application fee
  3. Official high school transcript reflecting unweighted GPA and class rank if you have less than 24 college-level credit hours
  4. ACT or SAT test score* if you have less than 24 college-level credit hours
  5. An official transcript from each college or university you have attended 
    *Beginning in summer 2022, students have the option to apply to OSU without consideration of a test score. Students who select this option on the application will be considered for admission based on a full review of their high school transcript. Class rank is not required for test optional admission. This option also applies to home school, private, parochial or other non-public high schools which are not accredited by a recognized accrediting agency. 

    *OSU will accept the official superscore provided directly from ACT for both admission and scholarship consideration.
