Now is also a great time to check out your eligibility for our Transfer Student Scholarships. Visit the Student Financial Services page and use the Transfer Scholarship Calculator.

To allow your financial aid to pay in a timely manner, make sure to UPLOAD complete official transcripts of all course work.

Connect with
Your Academic Advisor

After you received your acceptance letter, you also received an email from the SWOSU Helpdesk with your GoSWOSU Sign-On account information.

When you login to your GoSWOSU Single Sign-On, all your class registration information will be in the first tile, labeled Self-Service. To find your advisor information:

  • Open Self-Service
  • Go to Student Planning & Schedule
  • Your advisor’s name will be listed below your name and major

On the SWOSU homepage, you can use the directory (located at the top of the page or within the menu) to search for your advisor and find their email address and phone number.

If you have trouble connecting with your advisor, please reach out to the Admissions & Recruitment Office at 580.774.3782 and we can assist you.

You may notice a hold on your account when you access Self-Service. An Admissions Hold is simply a reminder that we need your final official transcripts from any institution that you are currently attending once your coursework is over and grades have been posted.

Review Your Plan of Study

Use the Undergraduate Catalog to find the Plan of Study for your major. This will be helpful as you plan classes and talk with your academic advisor.

Student IDs are issued in the Student ID Office on the second floor of the Memorial Student Center located in the middle of campus near the Clock Tower.
