About
The University of Central Oklahoma, located in Edmond, Oklahoma, is the oldest post-secondary educational institution in the state, having been founded in 1890. The school was originally a normal school established with the purpose of educating individuals in the methods of teaching to further the territory's educational system. The school was built on 40 acres donated by the territorial legislature, and with additional fund the first class of 23 students began their studies in 1891.

By 1904 the school had become Central State Normal School, though statehood for the Oklahoma territory would still be 3 years away. By 1919 the school became a four year degree granting teacher's college and by 1939 became a full fledged college. Between 1954 and 1971 the school was given the authority to confer a variety of master degrees, resulting in the school becoming recognized as a university and taking on the name Central State University.

On the school's 100 year anniversary the name was once again changed, this time to its current. The school has grown from its humble roots, currently serving nearly 16,000 students on a 300 acre campus.

Academics
The University of Central Oklahoma offers a large number of majors that allows students to choose which program tract will best suit their goals and allow them to prepare for their future. Students will take courses related to their major as well as general education requirements and elective courses outside of their field of study, all of which typically takes four years to complete.

During this time students may also choose to pursue a minor degree through additional courses of study, providing an extra area of study and expertise outside their major. Graduate programs are also available, having separate requirements for admission, typically involving graduate level exams, the appropriate degree earned, as well as a strong academic record.

Programs offered include:

Admissions and Financial Aid
Students interested in enrollment at University of Central Oklahoma may qualify for admission  through one of the several requirements for admissions. This includes a cumulative GPA of 2.7 and a class rank of 50% or higher, and ACT score of 20 or a SAT reading and math score of 940, or a 2.7 GPA and 15 units of a core high school curriculum.

Students must submit a completed application for admission, along with essay, transcripts and test scores which will be reviewed by the admissions committee. Once a decision is rendered, the student will be notified and provided the necessary information for beginning their college experience.

Financial aid is available in the form of loans, grants, scholarships and work study programs. Students requiring financial assistance must obtain a federal PIN and submit a completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the resulting student aid report (SAR) from which will be used to determine financial need, program eligibility and monetary awards.

Financial aid must be reapplied for at the start of each academic year, and students may be asked to provide additional financial documentation to verify the accuracy of the SAR prior to the disbursement of funds due to new federal regulations for aid. Scholarships may also be pursued from sources outside of the school. Such sources typically require a separate application for each scholarship and award funds based on varying criterion.
