LATEST UPDATES:

Spring class schedule
Like campuses around the state, OSU-OKC is working to safeguard the health of students and faculty during the COVID-19 pandemic. With that in mind, we have built flexible spring semester course offerings, including both online and in-person experiences:

Traditional classes: A traditional, on-campus class. The times, days and location of the class will be listed on the class schedule.

Online classes: These courses do not meet in person. Instructors use online materials, discussion postings or pre-recorded videos to teach content. Students manage their own time; the class schedule will list meeting days or times as "TBA."

Online classes with scheduled meetings: Some online courses may be taught in a virtual classroom with scheduled meeting days and times. These days and meeting times will be listed on the class schedule.

Hybrid classes: A blend of traditional and online instruction. In-person meetings may vary from weekly to only a few times throughout the semester. Information on meetings days, times and locations will be available on the class schedule or in the syllabus.

Hybrid classes with scheduled online meetings: For some hybrid courses, the online component will be at a scheduled time in a virtual classroom. These scheduled meeting days and times are included on the class schedule. campus buildings are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The only exception to the campus closure is for students to use the computer lab in BT 200 (second floor of the Business Technologies Building)

On December 27, 2020, the United States Congress passed and the President signed Public Law 116-260, the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplement Appropriations Act (CRRSAA). The CRRSAA authorizes an additional $81.88 billion in support for educational institutions due to the Coronavirus pandemic. OSU – Oklahoma City is to receive $1,150,415 in aid for emergency grants to students. All enrolled students, except international and undocumented students, are eligible for these emergency grants. To receive these grants, students must be enrolled for the spring 2021 semester and must be a U.S. citizen. These emergency grants can be used to pay an outstanding balance on a student’s account for the spring 2021 semester, with the students confirmation.

  • Students who DO have an outstanding account balance as of April 7, 2021 for the spring 2021 semester - please click HERE to indicate whether you want this emergency grant to be applied to your outstanding charges or want to receive a direct refund. Students will have until April 30 to authorize funds distributed. Students who answer “yes” will have their emergency grant applied to their account.
