Transfer Equivalencies

Prior to applying, prospective students should review the prerequisite requirements for their program, if applicable, by visiting the program webpage and complete a self-evaluation of their transcripts/coursework. The University of Oklahoma has created the Transfer Equivalencies Database (TED) to assist students in finding equivalent coursework at other institutions. Prospective students will need to work with an advisor at their current institution to create a plan that meets all requirements for admission, as the College of Allied Health will not be able to identify or recommend coursework from other institutions to meet requirements. If there is coursework that does not appear in the database or that you believe should be considered for a particular prerequisite, you can find information on how to petition the course(s) from the Office of Admissions & Records.

Submitting Supporting Materials

Applications are not considered complete until all materials have been submitted, including transcripts and any applicable test scores. Students applying for all programs except those listed below should follow the instructions provided by Admissions & Records in supporting documentation to the University.

All supporting documentation should be sent to the appropriate system and do not need to be sent directly to the OU Health Sciences unless otherwise directed.

Admissions Statistics

Admission into a program at the College of Allied Health may be based on several factors within your application including, but not limited to, GPAs, assessment scores, interview scores, etc. Additionally, each application cycle is unique based on the strength of the applicant pool at that time. Admissions statistics can be useful in understanding where you may currently stand compared to a previous cycle but should not be used as a definitive measure of whether your application will be considered competitive due to the various factors that go into a decision.

The statistics below represent the averages of the applicants accepted into each program for the previous admissions cycle. As they are averages of the entire pool, admitted students fell above and below the listed metrics. You should use the statistics as a guide on what areas to focus on if attempting to improve scores. To assist in calculating the credits you will need to improve your current GPA, you can use the OU GPA calculator. If the program you are applying to is not listed below, it is because admission to the program is considered on a case-by-case basis for all who meet the minimum requirements.


  • Cumulative GPA – GPA calculated using all attempted coursework at all attended institutions.
  • Science GPA – GPA calculated using all attempts as science-based coursework as determined by the OU Health Sciences Office of Admissions & Records.
    • Programs that utilize a Centralized Application System (CAS) will have their Science GPA calculated according to that system’s definition of a science course. Prospective students should visit their CAS system’s website to learn more about what courses will be counted.
  • Last 60 (L60) GPA – GPA calculated using the last 60 hours of coursework.

Please note that the OU Health Sciences is excluded from participation in the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education (OSRHE) Academic Forgiveness Provisions including repeat, reprieve, and renewal. Therefore, all grades earned will be included in GPA calculations.
