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.
Incoming freshmen can apply through the OSU application (opens July 1) or the Common Application (opens Aug. 1). Your application for admission is also your application for scholarships.
While you are not required to complete the essay question, we suggest you answer it 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.
If you would like your ACT or SAT scores considered for admission or scholarships, send Oklahoma State University your official scores 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.
Currently, consideration for most OSU scholarships will require a test score. OSU does not consider the essay component of the ACT/SAT for admission or scholarships. We will accept the official superscore provided by ACT for both admission and scholarship consideration.
