New Admit Instructions

Congratulations on being admitted into the College of Allied Health at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center!

Before accepting your admissions offer, review the following requirements that you will be expected to complete before you are eligible to begin your program. More details on how to complete these requirements will be provided if you choose to accept your position. Please note that failing to complete these requirements by the communicated deadlines may result in your admissions offer being rescinded. Requirements include, but are not limited to:

  • Participation at all mandatory orientation sessions the week before classes begin
  • Completion of any outstanding prerequisites and submission of final transcripts prior to beginning program coursework
  • Criminal background check
  • Urine drug screen
  • Basic Life Support (BLS) Provider CPR training through the American Heart Association

If you have any questions or concerns about your ability to meet these requirements, please contact the Office of Academic and Student Affairs for more information prior to accepting your offer. Additionally, please contact the office if you are having difficulty with paying your deposit by the deadline listed in your offer letter.

Within two weeks after accepting your offer, you will receive emails from OUHSC IT with instructions on how to activate your OUHSC email account. You will use the credentials you are provided to log in to the majority of OUHSC systems going forward. Once you have your credentials, you will be able to log in to Canvas. You will log in using your username (not email address) and password. You will be added to a Canvas community titled “2023 College of Allied Health New Student Information”, where you will find information regarding how to get started working through the initial requirements to begin your program. Please note that the page will go live near the end of November for all newly admitted students, after which students will be added in batches to access the page.

Note: It may take 2-3 days after email activation to successfully sign into the Canvas system. If you are not able to sign in after this time, please contact Gina Vile for Canvas access assistance.


All admitted students must be available Monday through Friday of the week before classes start for mandatory orientation sessions. Additional information will be communicated in the Brightspace/D2L system once available

Information on when classes start each semester can be found on the OUHSC Academic Calendar.
