Southwestern Oklahoma State University

Admissions

Provisional Admission Requirements

Admission to the university in the following categories may be granted to those who are not high school graduates:

Adults Who Are Not High School Graduates

Any adult resident of Oklahoma (18 years of age or older) who has had his/ her high school education interrupted before graduation is eligible for provisional admission as a special student to an institution in the State System as follows:

  • His/her high school class must have graduated prior to the date of application.
  • The applicant is considered academically worthy to enroll in the institution to which she/he is applying according to the judgment of a responsible institutional official or committee.

Adults Who Have Been Out of High School Two Years

Any adult resident of Oklahoma (18 years of age or older) who has been out of high school two years or longer is eligible for provisional admission as a special student to an institution in the State System as follows:

  • The applicant must meet all of the criteria for the institution to which he/she is applying as set forth in Part 1 of this policy.
  • An adult given provisional admission under this policy will be on probation for a period of two semesters. If, at the end of that time, the student has made satisfactory progress (see retention standards), the student may continue to enroll as a regular college student.

All students pursuing admission to Associate in Science and Associate in Applied Science degree programs must meet the new curricular requirements listed under general admission requirements and remove any curricular deficiencies within the first twenty-four semester hours attempted, or they will be permitted to enroll in deficiency-removal courses only. Courses taken to remove deficiencies will not count toward satisfaction of degree program requirements.

No student is officially enrolled until all required records are on file. Failure to provide these records in a timely manner may result in a cancellation of enrollment or a delay in future enrollment or transfer.
