2. Pay the $40 non-refundable application fee or fee waiver. 
  • Concurrent students must submit a new concurrent application for each semester they plan to attend OSU, but the $40 application fee only needs to be paid on your initial application and carries forward for all future concurrent applications AND later for your full-time freshman application.

  1. 24+ ACT or 1160+ SAT.
  2. Top 33.3% rank in high school class, with at least a 3.0 unweighted cumulative GPA.
* OSU does not consider the essay component of the ACT/SAT for admission criteria listed above.
Home study or Unaccredited High Schools: Graduates must satisfy the curricular requirements and have either a 1160 SAT or 24 ACT score. Grade-point average and class rank are not used to evaluate students who fall under either category. 

Students who have been denied admission may appeal one time by submitting the Freshman Admission Decision Appeal Petition. Students are strongly encouraged to submit all updated academic information, including final high school transcripts, letters of recommendation, and any additional ACT or SAT scores, before completing the petition. The appeal petition and other application materials will be evaluated by the Admissions Review Committee, and the student will be notified of the outcome within three business days. In order to be considered, your petition must be submitted by noon the Thursday prior to the start of the term for which you have applied. If you have questions about the petition process, contact us at 405-744-5358.
