First-Time Freshmen

While admissions requirements vary for different types of students, the basics are the same for everyone: Complete an application and provide transcripts from your previous academic experience.

If you will be a freshman at Northeastern State University in Broken Arrow, you will benefit from the cooperative partnership agreement with Tulsa Community College that gives you dual admission to both schools and access to shared resources, such as fitness centers and libraries.

Typically, all paperwork must be completed at least one month before classes begin.

  1. Complete an application and submit the $25 non-refundable application fee.
  2. Submit a high school transcript (seven semester minimum) containing the most current class rank, grade point average and ACT scores.
  3. The final, official transcript must include your date of graduation and be mailed directly from your school to the Office of Admissions.
  4. Note that we generally require a 2.7 high school GPA and an ACT score of 20 or better.

Rookie Bridge Camp

If you will be an entering freshmen on the Tahlequah campus, you may want to participate in Rookie Bridge Camp, a fun-filled, two-day camp prior before classes begin in July. Especially for freshmen who recently graduated from high school, it is planned and produced by NSU students. You'll get information on what to expect and how to succeed at NSU, as well as a chance to meet other freshmen and upper classmen.
