Career Exploration

Interested in an Allied Health Career?

An allied health career may just be for you!  One of the most helpful things you can do to aid you in your decision of a health career is to job shadow a health professional in the field you are considering.  If one of our graduates working in the field listed on our website is not available for you to job shadow, we recommend calling a local facility that employs the profession you are considering and ask to speak to that professional on staff.  Then, ask if they will allow you to come in and job shadow to help you make your decision on which health profession is best for you.

Transfer Equivalencies/Transcript Evaluation

Admission Statistics

The statistics below represent averages of the students accepted into each program for the last admissions cycle which means that there were students who were admitted that were above these averages as well as below these averages.  The Admissions Committee for each program will consider the below categories at the minimum in the admission decision and potentially other factors such as verbal interview (if required), letters of recommendation (if required), references, career goal statement, etc. 

Science GPA calculation clarification – The OU Norman Transfer Equivalencies Database has courses listed as acceptable for Natural Science with Lab that may or may not be calculated into the science GPA for College of Allied Health admissions purposes.  Please see the following explanations on what is calculated in your science GPA for College of Allied Health admissions purposes:

  • Calculated in science GPA:  biology I, biology II, zoology, human anatomy, human physiology, physics I, physics II, chemistry I, chemistry I, biochemistry, organic chemistry, etc.  Please note that our Dietetics programs are the only programs that calculate ‘Intro to Nutrition’ into your science GPA for admission purposes.
  • Not calculated in science GPA:  botany, astronomy, physical science, earth science, ecology, evolution, nutrition, etc.

Please note that there are many other courses than what is listed in the first bullet above that could be calculated into your science GPA; however, the courses listed above are the most common.  If you have any questions, please send an email to alliedhealth-info@ouhsc.edu or call (405) 271-6588.

GPA Calculations

Our programs are competitive for admission.  Please review the admission statistics for our programs in order to determine your competitiveness.  Our programs consider many variables for admission.  All of our programs consider an applicant’s cumulative GPA for admission purposes.  Most of our programs also consider science GPA for admission purposes.  Other factors may be considered such as references, standardized test scores, letters of recommendation, interview, etc. 

Our calculation of your science GPA includes the hard-core animal and human science courses completed such as biology, human anatomy, human physiology, physics, chemistry, etc.  Our science GPA will not include courses such as the various health and exercise science courses, earth science, physical science, botany, astronomy, ecology, evolution, etc.  Please click here to review an extensive list of which courses will and will not calculate into your science GPA for admission purposes.  If you have questions about which courses may or may not be included in your science GPA, please email us or call us at (405) 271-6588.

The University of Oklahoma provides a website tool to calculate your GPA.  This tool is helpful when calculating your cumulative and/or science GPA.  They also provide a website tool to aid you in calculating how to improve your GPA.  This tool will calculate how many more hours of ‘A’ you need in order to raise your cumulative and/or science GPA to what you desire.
