Admission Requirements

Admission to a graduate program at Oklahoma State University requires the submission of an application to a graduate program and providing information required by the department or program.

To be reviewed for admission consideration, international applicants must submit a complete application to the Graduate College. To have a complete application, the following:

  • An application for admission consideration. You can submit an application via our secure website..

  • a non-refundable application fee:

    • $75 for international applicants (degree or non-degree seeking applications)

    • $50 for US citizens or permanent resident card holders (degree seeking applications)

    • $25 for US citizens or permanent resident card holders (non-degree seeking applications)

  • one original transcript from each college or university attended (all transcripts must be official with the college's or registrar's original seal and should show any degrees completed)

  • A TOEFL or IELTS score (if required - please see the "English Proficiency" section)

Transcripts and other documents submitted become the property of Oklahoma State University and will not be returned.

Only after receiving this information is your application complete with the Graduate College and it will be forwarded to the department for an admission review. Because of the amount of time it takes to review international credentials and send immigration papers (e.g., an I-20), international students should expect that the application process will take several weeks to be completed.

  • A Financial affidavit (Financial Guarantee or Confirmation of Financial Resources) is required for applicants expecting to be F1 or J1 visa holders prior to our being able to send an I-20. See the "Financial Statements" section for more information.
