Admissions Process

The admissions process is a step-by-step journey to experience and evaluate the Ottawa University campus and community.  It is beneficial to envision yourself in your academic and athletic pursuits on campus. It is valuable to come on campus during a visit day and meet faculty, staff, and coaches.  Also, you can check-out our new Hetrick Bistro serving Starbucks and featuring themed food stations.   

 The recommended process includes: 

  • Reach out to an enrollment advisor
  • Attend a visit day
  • Submit an admissions application (you can apply online)
  • Pay your application fee
  • Submit all official transcripts from prior institutions, including high school
  • Request official test scores from ACT or SAT be sent to OU directly

 To complete the admissions process, submit all documents outlined above to:
