Transfer Students

To help you assess your opportunities at Oklahoma State University, we encourage you to review admission requirements and apply to OSU as soon as possible.

Helpful Suggestions for Transfers

While attending a community college but prior to transferring to Oklahoma State University to major in business, we recommend that you concentrate on completing the general education courses that OSU requires. You will find these listed in the General Education section of the degree requirement sheets for business majors. Note that in most cases, junior and senior level courses (3000 or 4000) at OSU cannot be met by course work from a two-year school or community college. Lastly, as a new transfer student you will be required to attend a Transfer Enrollment Program.
