OSU-NOC Gateway Program

The Gateway Program


Admission to NOC-OSU Gateway Program

Students who have applied for freshman admission to OSU but do not meet current admission requirements do qualify for admission to the NOC-OSU Gateway Program located at Northern Oklahoma College's Stillwater campus. Graduates of accredited high schools or other students whose high school class has graduated are eligible for admission to this program. The ACT is required for all applicants under 21 years of age. Applicants over 21 are not required to take the ACT but will be required to take placement tests in English, reading, and/or math. In addition to meeting NOC standard admission requirements, international applicants are required to provide a financial guarantee and demonstrate English proficiency.


Admission to Oklahoma State University

Students admitted into the NOC-OSU Gateway Program must earn twenty-four hours of college level credit through the program with a 2.25 minimum grade-point average. Gateway students are encouraged to work closely with OSU admissions personnel to ensure that they meet all admission requirements of the university.


Course Offerings at NOC-OSU Gateway Program

Northern Oklahoma College offers a variety of courses for transfer to Oklahoma State University. Gateway courses transfer as equivalent to specific OSU courses and meet general education requirements just as they would if taken at OSU. Courses regularly offered include freshman composition, American history and government, college algebra, introductory sociology and psychology, speech, and humanities. A joint committee, consisting of faculty representatives from both NOC and OSU, meets periodically to ensure that Gateway Program courses have common learning objectives and prepare students well for later OSU courses. The availability of transfer guides, degree requirement sheets, and ready access to NOC and OSU academic advising offices help to ensure that Gateway students choose courses that apply to their eventual OSU degree.
