Summer, fall enrollment open at Northwestern; scholarships available for freshmen, transfer students

March 30, 2016

Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s 2016 summer and fall enrollment are underway. Classes for the summer semester begin on June 1 and the fall semester on Aug. 22. All students are encouraged to enroll right away before classes close.

Northwestern’s course schedule booklets can be found online as a PDF version at At the top of that web page is the link “Updated Course Schedule” that will allow the user to find courses in all programs in a dropdown link format. This location on the website will keep everyone aware of what courses are closed or canceled as indicated with color-coded lines. It also clarifies if permission of an instructor is required before enrollment in a closed class can be processed. The same location shows if any changes have been made to course times, locations or instructors.

All students must obtain a class schedule and enrollment form, have the form signed by an adviser and process the form at the registrar’s office. Currently enrolled graduate and undergraduate students pre-approved by their academic advisers may enroll online or at the registrar’s office, Herod Hall-first floor.

Enrollment at Northwestern-Enid, 2929 E. Randolph, and Northwestern-Woodward, 2007 34th St., will be processed at their registration offices during regular business hours.

New students—both transfers and first-time students—and those returning after being out at least one semester must enroll in the registrar’s office.

Northwestern offers several scholarship opportunities for transfer students and freshmen. A number of participation scholarships also are given in areas such as band, choir, theatre, visual arts, cheerleading, dance and campus media for all students. Recommendations for these awards usually come from university department heads. Athletic scholarships are awarded through the athletic department. Find a list of available academic scholarships at

High school seniors who wish to apply for Northwestern scholarships and enrollment incentives should return a completed Scholarship Application with a seven-semester transcript by May 15.
