PARENTS CAMPAIGN Parents realize that students learn both inside and outside of the classroom. In fact, for every hour spent in the classroom, OU students spend approximately four hours in informal gatherings studying, socializing, exercising or participating in co-curricular organizations, all of which contribute to their intellectual and emotional growth. That’s why many OU parents believe it’s important to support these activities through the annual Parents Campaign. Each year, this campaign raises funds to support activities and programs that enrich students’ OU experiences, as well as benefit their lives after college. Through the Parents Campaign, more than 2,300 parent donors support programs, including the OU Food Pantry, Career Services’ “Sooner Suit-up” Program, campus awards and recognition programs, leadership education, and health and alcohol education. To participate in the campaign, indicate “Parents Fund” at the “Make a Gift” site, ou.edu/ givenow. Additionally, you may receive a phone call from an OU student during the annual parent campaign inviting you to join our efforts. For more information about the campaign, please contact Tracy Carlson at tcarlson@ ou.edu, (405) 325-8579. parents.ou.edu | 9

Academic Programs

Congratulations to you and your student for arriving at this point – at a world-class institution in an incredibly important time in your student’s life. University College is here to help your student make the most of their opportunities. Our goal is to assist students in making a smooth transition to the university and in building a solid foundation for further academic success. Our college was established in 1942, making us one of the first University Colleges in the nation. Since then, many universities have followed suit. Because the transition to college introduces many uncertainties, having a unit dedicated to helping students navigate that transition and explore the many possibilities has proven to greatly contribute to student success. Students stay in University College until they have earned 24 credit hours, have decided on and declared a major, and have earned the GPA required for entrance into the degree-granting college of that major. 16 | parents.ou.edu

We are located in Lissa and Cy Wagner Hall, the cornerstone of the Student Academic Services District. We have state-of-theart classrooms and dedicated study spaces to support students’ academic pursuits. Our building provides a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere for studying and socializing between classes. To learn more about University College, our programs and services, please visit our website at uc.ou.edu. And certainly, if we can be of any assistance to you now or in the future, please do not hesitate to contact us at ucquestions@ou.edu or call (405) 3252072 to speak with one of our friendly and professional staff.

Nicole Campbell, Ph.D. Dean, University College

The purpose of University College is to assist new students in making a successful transition to the University and in building a solid foundation for further academic success. Center for Major and Career Exploration University College’s Center for Major and Career Exploration helps students confirm or explore major options that are a good fit for them. The major/career coaches in the Center for Major and Career Exploration work one-to-one with students to identify their individual personality type, interests, values and aptitudes to help them decide on a major and/or career. uc.ou.edu/majors First-Year Foundations: Students take UCOL 1002: First-Year Foundations, during their first semester at OU. In this course, caring instructors and peer mentors coach students through the transition to OU and help them build a foundation for continued success at the University.

CLASSROOM FAQs What are “credits,” “hours” and “credit hours”? These terms are used interchangeably at the university. Successful completion of each course earns students a certain number of credits toward graduation. Often, the number of credits earned is based on how many hours the class meets each week. Most courses are three credits and meet about three hours per week. Laboratory science courses are usually four to five credit hours, with additional time required for the lab component. It is important to remember that each individual degree program requires specific courses, rather than the mere accumulation of hours. How long does it take to earn a college degree? The time necessary to complete a degree will depend on the specific degree the student chooses, the number of hours the student takes each semester, the student’s performance, and additional obligations the student assumes, such as employment or involvement in student organizations. Is class attendance mandatory? Attendance is strongly recommended and is tied to grading in some classes. Students cannot expect to do well without going to class. The freshman year brings many new challenges to students and cultivating the self-discipline to attend each class is one of their biggest responsibilities.

18 | parents.ou.edu

What about class size? The format and size of the class depends on the nature of the subject matter and the method of presentation that the professor selects. Some classes are small, whereas others combine a large lecture and small discussion groups. Some courses include a laboratory, which is usually small. As freshmen, students will probably have a mixture of classes in terms of size and format. For example, mathematics courses are generally limited to 35 students per section, and English composition classes are limited to 19 students per section. Do course numbers have a special meaning? Every course has a four-digit number. The first digit indicates the level of the course: 1000- or 2000- numbered courses are lower division, 3000- or 4000- numbered courses are upper division. The last digit in the course number usually represents the number of credit hours that will be awarded upon successful completion of the course. What is one.ou.edu? The one.ou.edu portal provides students with a way to take care of all their university business needs in one place. Some of the functions include enrolling online, checking grades, paying tuition and fees, checking financial aid information, updating personal information and accessing various university resources.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (Buckley Amendment), also known as FERPA, prohibits the release of grades and other confidential academic information to anyone but the student. The goal of this federal law is to protect the student’s rights. Student records, whether academic or otherwise, are considered private documents. However, parents of dependent students are entitled to have access to this information under guidelines provided in FERPA. Access to this information is limited to parents who claim the student as an exemption on their federal income tax return. ou.edu/recordsandtranscripts/release_of_ information

Money Matters

STUDENT FINANCIAL CENTER (SFC) SFC is OU’s integrated student financial service department composed of financial aid, scholarships and billing and payment experts. SFC Student Service Experts strive to provide a seamless contact experience for students, families, faculty and staff via phone, email and face-to-face. Located in Buchanan Hall, Room 105, visitors are greeted by a spacious lobby outfitted with online queuing stations, comfy seating and friendly student employees ready to direct them to the area appropriate for their service request. For those who seek one-to-one time with an SFC expert - they will be greeted by one person who will accompany them to a consultation desk and assist them with every account question they may have. Their appointed SFC expert will liaise with all other departments on their behalf to achieve resolution of their issue(s). This holistic approach has proven to save time and lessen frustration for students and families. Who is billed for enrollment fees and tuition? Students* are billed for tuition, mandatory fees and course-related fees by semester. All other charges are billed the month in which they are incurred. Bursar Services is the centralized billing and payment office for student accounts and generates a monthly statement for current charges as of the last day of every month. Students, and those authorized by the student, will receive an email notification when the online statement is available. Parents who wish to pay charges online or receive notification of statements will need their student to authorize release of the billing information to the parent by assigning them access to their account online. one.ou.edu 26 | parents.ou.edu

SFC provides a payment drop box in the lobby of the first floor of Buchanan Hall. Payment envelopes are provided for students to include instructions or notes with their personal check(s), cashier’s check(s) and/or money order(s). Please note: cash cannot be accepted through the payment drop box. Due to our new office structure, inperson payments on accounts are no longer accepted in the office. For billing and payment questions, please contact SFC at (405) 325-9000. Students can email us at sfc@ou.edu.

Ask The Sooners is a comprehensive questionand-answer bank will help you find answers to your most-frequently asked questions about financial aid, billing and payment issues, admissions, academic records, online registration, and degree navigation. Should you have additional questions, please email sfc@ou.edu FERPA FERPA is a federal law that is administered by the Family Policy Compliance Office (FPCO) in the U.S. Department of Education (Department). 20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99. FERPA applies to educational agencies and institutions (e.g., schools) that receive funding under any program administered by the Department of Education. FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children’s education records. Parents should understand that their rights transfer to the student when they reach the age of 18 or attend a postsecondary school at any age. Students to whom the rights have transferred are “eligible students.” To learn more about FERPA please visit: familypolicy.ed.gov

FINANCIAL AID Parents often have many questions about how much college will cost, how to find out about financial aid and how to apply for scholarships. SFC can help you learn about the many financial aid and scholarship opportunities available to assist students with paying for college. Find online OU financial aid and scholarship information, including financial aid deadlines and processing information, Parent PLUS and Institutional Loan information by visiting ou.edu/sfc > Financial Aid and/or Scholarships. Be sure to check out the “Parent Information” link and “What’s New” announcements for important information and updates! The student must apply for financial aid each academic year beginning Oct. 1, by completing the FAFSA at fafsa.gov. OU’s recommended annual FAFSA filing date is by March 1 for the following fall or spring semesters. Follow the FAFSA instructions carefully and include OU’s Title IV School Code - 003184. OU-FAN (Financial Aid Notification) Students may check the status of their financial aid by logging on to one.ou.edu. Once they are logged in, they click on the Financial Tab > Financial Aid section to review the status of their aid application. One section contains Missing Information and another that shows the Financial Aid Awards. The OU-FAN lists the types and amount of financial aid awards offered. When the student wishes to accept loans, this is also where they can accept the loan electronically. Please note: when the student accepts federal direct loans, they must also sign a Promissory Note and do Entrance Counseling at studentloans.gov. The financial aid process can take up to four weeks after submitting the FAFSA and turning in all requested documentation to SFC. Funds are disbursed to the student Bursar account one week prior to the start of each semester for any students who have all their paperwork completed and are enrolled. Funds are disbursed daily thereafter. All paperwork must be turned in and processed by the last week of the term. 28 | parents.ou.edu

Scholarships OU has many scholarships available to incoming, transfer and continuing students. Scholarships may be based on academic merit, leadership, financial aid, talent or other criteria. For incoming students, the scholarship application is included on the admissions application. All other undergraduate scholarship applications are available through an online system called the Centralized Academic Scholarship Hub, or CASH. CASH includes all college, departmental, financial aid and universitywide scholarships and awards. The application opens Oct. 1 and closes at 11:59 p.m. on Feb. 1 each year. More information can be found at ou.edu/sfc > Scholarships. Additional scholarship searches at the national, state and local levels also are encouraged. OU MoneyCoach All first-year students are assigned a MoneyCoach. A MoneyCoach is a financial professional who will help your student build lifelong money management skills and navigate the process of paying for college. Learn more at ou.edu/moneycoach.


STUDENT JOBS Human Resources helps students find part-time jobs that fit their school schedule. Does your student want to work on campus or in the community? All student job listings are posted online. On Campus Students can find a wide variety of on-campus work-study and non-work study jobs at jobs. ou.edu. Students can apply by completing the OU online application 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They also can track their application status and apply to multiple jobs with a single application. Work Study Students can apply for work-study jobs when they receive a work-study award through the financial aid office. Qualifying for a work-study award is not a guarantee of employment, but many job postings list a hiring preference for students who qualify for work-study funding. Work-study funding is paid as wages throughout the semester. For more information please go to ou.edu/sfc > Financial Aid > Types of Aid > Federal Work Study or phone SFC at (405) 325-9000. Off Campus Off-campus jobs are available through the Job Location Program (JLP), connecting local employers with student workers at hr.ou.edu/jlp. Students can browse job offerings 24 hours a day, seven days a week and can contact the employer directly to apply for a job. An OU job application is not required for off-campus jobs.
