Application Steps - Freshmen

Applying to Oklahoma State University is as easy as 1-2-3-4! There are four important steps in the application process, and each one must be completed to begin your journey at OSU. Just remember, your application for admission is also your application for scholarships.

1. Fill Out the Application

In order for us to process your application most quickly, we suggest you use the online application. You are always able to log back in to your account to finish if you are disrupted along the way. You can also print the application, fill it out and mail or deliver it to our office at

Undergraduate Admissions
219 Student Union
Stillwater, OK 74078

Once again, your application for admission is also your application for scholarships. While you are not required to complete the essay questions, we suggest you answer them to the best of your ability so that you will be considered for all applicable scholarship opportunities.

See our tips for answering essay questions.

The OSU application fee is $40 and is non-refundable. It must be paid before your application can be processed. You may pay online with a VISA or MasterCard.

You may also mail or deliver a check or money order made out to Oklahoma State University to:
