Student Advocacy

The Office of Student Advocacy helps students identify barriers and develop skills to navigate their paths to success and degree completion. Students can explore strategies for academic success, enrollment and financial aid policies, financial planning and budgeting, finding pathways to graduation and returning to UCO to complete their degrees.

Think 30

Students must complete at least 30 hours per academic year to stay on track to graduate in four years. For more information, call 405-974-5390, email or schedule an appointment with us.
