Colleges in Oklahoma

Post-secondary schools in Oklahoma are a coordinated system of institutions. The Oklahoma System of Higher Education was created in 1941 by an amendment to the state's constitution. It is comprised of 25 universities, two of which are research universities, one public liberal arts university, 10 regional universities, 12 community colleges, two higher education centers and 11 constituent agencies. The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education coordinates the system of Oklahoma schools of higher education. All colleges in Oklahoma are governed by their own board of regents.

The State Regents set the academic standards for Oklahoma, determine courses, approve each institutions allocations, tuition and fees and operates the Oklahoma College Assistance program.

Although the State Regents are the coordinating board for all Oklahoma schools in the OSHE, each separate institution has its own governing board of regents and trustees for operations and management.

There are 17 independent Oklahoma colleges and universities, three of which are religious-affiliated. The state has four tribal colleges and one theological seminary.

The University of Oklahoma, known as OU is listed in the 2014 edition of Best Colleges and Universities with a ranking of 101. It is a public research university that was founded in 1890. It is in an urban setting in Norman, Oklahoma on 3,313 acres. The university has an undergraduate student body of almost 22,000. It has very reasonable in-state tuition and fees, currently at around $7,300 per year. OU is the home of the National Weather Center. Any student can apply to conduct weather research during summer school.

Other top Oklahoma colleges and universities include Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford, and Northwestern Oklahoma State University. Northwestern State has three campus to choose from: the Alva campus, Enid campus and the Woodward campus.
