Concurrent enrollment is designed to prepare high school students for the collegiate experience. Upon admission, students must maintain a cumulative 2.0 GPA in concurrent courses to remain eligible in the concurrent enrollment program per Oklahoma State Regents policy.
To be admitted you must meet one of the following requirements:
- ACT/Pre-ACT: 20*;
- SAT/PSAT: 1030*; or,
- GPA: 3.0 (unweighted)
*Due to COVID-19, admission to UCO is test optional for the spring, summer, and fall 2021 entering classes. Students can indicate if they have been unable to take an ACT or SAT test due to COVID-19 on their application for admission. Students can apply with only a high school transcript and counselor recommendation form and may be considered for admission by exception for the spring, summer, and fall 2021 semesters.
Homeschooled students and students from unaccredited high schools shall have completed enough high school coursework to be equivalent to an individual who is classified as a junior or senior at an accredited high school. In addition, homeschool or unaccredited high school students cannot be admitted by high school GPA; they must meet the ACT/SAT requirements.
While students may meet the admission standards, they will not be eligible to take courses in subject areas where their ACT subscore is below a 19.
