First-Time Enrollment

Welcome to Oklahoma State University!

University College Advising is a student-centered office with professional advisors who work closely with you to plan your academic future. We will also connect you to resources that can help you achieve success here at OSU and beyond.

New Student Orientation (NSO) is the first step towards ensuring a smooth transition to college life. There will be sessions to review all aspects of life at the university, including navigating campus, paying for college, staying healthy, and meeting new people. UCA’s priority during NSO is to enroll each of our students in an appropriate class schedule for the fall. This includes placement testing for math and other courses and meeting with your advisor to discuss your academic goals.

To make your advising meeting go smoothly, here are a few things you can do in advance:
  • Make sure the Office of Undergraduate Admissions has all of your ACT or SAT scores. ACT subscores are used to determine remediation needs in Math, Science, English, and Reading, so send in the score even if the composite wasn’t your highest.
  • Submit your final high school transcripts to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
  • If you have completed any college courses, have those transcripts sent as well (if it was not at OSU). If you are currently enrolled in college courses, bring a copy of your schedule.
  • If you applied for Admissions with “Undecided” as your major, you may be able to declare your major on your Admissions Portal
  • Make sure you know your O-Key password, you will need it for enrollment.
  • Depending on what type of email account you chose during O-Key set up, log in at orangemail.okstate.edu (Google) or cowboymail.okstate.edu (Outlook) to check your OSU email often.
 Here are some topics you may hear discussed when you arrive:

  We are glad to have you join the UCA family and look forward to working with you towards your success!
