Transfer Student Application Process

There are three steps in the application process for transfer students. All steps must be completed in order to be admitted and be able to enroll in classes at OSU-Tulsa.

  1. Complete and submit the online application.  
    International students apply at the OSU International Students and Scholars website.  Students applying for undergraduate admission can complete their application in more than one sitting if necessary.  The essay questions are not required, but not doing so will limit scholarship opportunities at both the Tulsa and Stillwater campuses.
  2. Pay the application fee.
    The OSU application fee is $40 ($75 for international students) and is nonrefundable.  This fee must be paid before your application can be processed.

    Pay via the following methods:
    • Pay online with VISA or Mastercard. Be sure to print and save your payment confirmation, as it may be required for admission purposes.
    • Pay in person with cash, check or money order. 
    • Mail a check or money order payable to Oklahoma State University to OSU-Tulsa, Undergraduate Admissions Office, 700 N. Greenwood Ave., Tulsa, OK 74106-0700.
    • Oklahoma State University accepts application fee waivers for students based on demonstrated need.  Waivers are approved based on the information provided on a student's FAFSA, so a student must complete the FAFSA before completing a fee waiver form (PDF download).
  3. Submit all official transcripts.
    Submit an official transcript from each and every college or university you have attended.  All transcripts are required before your admission can be reviewed.  All transcripts must be dated within the last three months.  Transcripts can be delivered in person or mailed to:  OSU-Tulsa, Office of Undergraduate Admissions, 700 N. Greenwood Ave., Tulsa, OK 74106-0700.

If you withdrew the previous semester and are trying to apply for readmission, contact Enrollment Services at 918-594-8100 or visit the Enrollment Services office on the first floor of the Administration Building to determine if you need to reapply.

A readmission student is defined as a student who has attended OSU-Tulsa or Stillwater but was not enrolled during the immediate past semester (except the summer session).  Readmission criteria are based on a student’s status when he or she left OSU.

There are four steps in the application process for readmission students.  All steps must be completed in order to be admitted and be able to enroll in classes at OSU-Tulsa.

  3. Submit new transcript work.
    Submit an official transcript from each and every college or university you have attended since you last attended OSU.  If you previously submitted transcripts to OSU and there have been no changes (no additional classes taken), then you do not need to submit transcripts again. All new transcripts are required before your admission can be reviewed.  All new transcripts must be dated within the last three months.  Transcripts can be delivered in person or mailed to:  OSU-Tulsa, Office of Undergraduate Admissions, 700 N. Greenwood Ave., Tulsa, OK 74106-0700.
  4. Submit a readmission petition.
    A student who left the university on probation or suspension may be required to submit a readmission petition and undergo the readmission appeal process.  This process includes a review of the student’s academic record and the readmission petition.  To determine whether or not a student is required to complete a petition review the following chart .
