Everyone admitted to ORU must have graduated from a secondary school, home school, or be the recipient of a GED. In order to prepare yourself for the challenges of college, we recommend you take the following courses during your secondary education:
- Four years of English

- Two years of math including algebra and geometry or two years of algebra

I have completed concurrent enrollment courses while enrolled in high school. Will I still be considered a college freshman?
To be defined as a freshman, you should have earned fewer than 15 credit hours from a regionally accredited or otherwise recognized post-secondary institution since graduating from high school. Since those courses were taken before you graduated from high school, you are still considered a college freshman upon acceptance.
