Non-Degree Seeking or Special Status Graduate Students

We're here to help.

As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the concerns for the health and safety of our guests and campus community, our OSU-Tulsa staff is working remotely. We want to assist you and will continue to work to meet your needs by email, telephone or virtual appointment.​ Visit this web page for the most up-to-date service information and to make an appointment.

This information is for students who would like to take classes before official admission into a graduate program.

If you missed an application deadline, want to explore a graduate program before you apply, need a class for a graduate program at another school or are just interested in taking a course without seeking a degree, you may be able to seek special student admission status. As a non-degree seeking graduate student, you may be able to complete up to nine credit hours toward a degree (MBA program allows up to six). Check with your graduate coordinator to see if this is an option for you.

Request Information

Please note that as a non-degree seeking graduate student, you are not eligible for federal financial aid until you are fully admitted into your degree program.
