If you’ve been thinking about applying to Oakland University this year, Undergraduate Admissions Director Shane Lewis wants you to know that there’s still time to submit your application for the fall semester.

“We encourage any student who is considering OU to apply for free online today,” Lewis said. “At Oakland University, we are here for you every step of the way. And, given the current pandemic and social distancing guidelines, we have made it a priority that we are available
virtually, as well.”



In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, OU has temporarily shifted to test-optional admission, which means that SAT or ACT scores are not required for admission consideration for the fall of 2021. Students are still encouraged to send test scores, if and when they have them, for course placement or additional scholarship consideration.



“We are also going to be extremely flexible regarding our March 1 priority scholarship deadline,” Lewis said. “We will be considering both updated test scores and updated grades, well beyond March 1. Students may continue to send updates as they have them, for additional scholarship consideration, up until the start of fall classes.”

Oakland University is a doctoral, Carnegie Classification R2 “High Research Activity” university located in Oakland and Macomb counties. The main campus is located on 1,443 acres of scenic land in the Southeast Michigan cities of Rochester Hills and Auburn Hills. The university also maintains program space at the University Center in Clinton Township and at the Anton/Frankel Center in Mount Clemens.

OU offers bachelor’s degrees, graduate degrees and certificate programs, and is dedicated to delivering a distinctive college experience. The university is organized into the College of Arts
and Sciences (which includes a School of Music, Theatre and Dance), the Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine and the Schools of Business Administration, Education and Human Services, Engineering and Computer Science, Health Sciences, Nursing, and The
Honors College.



“Investing in an OU education is the very best decision students can make, especially when the demands of the marketplace make having a college degree more important than ever,” Lewis said. “At Oakland University, we have made it a top priority to help students earn their degrees by offering an affordable, highly sought-after education in Southeastern Michigan, and I sure hope students consider joining the Golden Grizzly family.”
