A Welcome from the Graduate Interim Dean, Dr. Jean Van Delinder


Welcome to the OSU Graduate College! The Graduate College supports Oklahoma State University’s land grant mission of offering a wide variety of programs of advanced academic study.  OSU’s overarching goal is to increase our collective understanding of the world.  We are committed to creating an environment conducive to learning and scholarly activity in a diverse university community.  We also work to provide you with the best post-baccalaureate education possible through formal coursework and in the research and creative experiences associated with your thesis and dissertation work. By working together to increase our collective understanding of the world, we can learn how to create a more sustainable and equitable society.


The University has more than 1,000 members of the graduate faculty, many of whom are internationally recognized scholars in their fields. We offer more than 200 programs, options, and specializations leading to certificates, master’s, and doctoral degrees, including several interdisciplinary programs. OSU is a leading contributor to graduate education with over 1000 master’s degrees and almost 200 doctoral degrees awarded each year. Our graduate programs are supported by internal funding and by a strong base of externally sponsored research. Graduate students at OSU work on state-of-the-art research and creative projects in a wide variety of areas. Competitive fellowships and assistantships, tuition waivers, and comprehensive health insurance plans are available to provide support to graduate assistants as they pursue their graduate studies.


The Graduate College website includes information on our advanced degree programs and requirements for degrees. It also provides important information for current graduate students and faculty through the resource’s portal to Canvas. For prospective students, the site provides information on the many graduate programs that we offer and links to program pages, which allow you to explore the many facets of these programs in greater breadth and depth. We hope that this information helps you make the decision to pursue a graduate degree at OSU with confidence.


All of us at the OSU Graduate College wish you the very best as you pursue your quest for knowledge through graduate education, and we look forward to welcoming you to our community of scholars at Oklahoma State University. What we do here makes a difference.
