Higher education

With more than 18 public and private schools with 125,000 college students, we believe Greater OKC is the perfect place to start or continue your college experience. Oklahoma City is 20.9 miles from the University of Oklahoma and only 66.9 miles from Oklahoma State University – the two largest universities in the state with a wide variety of educational opportunities.

Students looking for campus life have a number of options for furthering their education in the Greater Oklahoma City area. Nearly 17,000 students attend Edmond’s University of Central Oklahoma, making it the third largest college in the state. On the south side of the metro, students at Oklahoma City Community College can earn associate’s degrees and learn valuable technical skills.

The state capital is also home to a number of private universities that bring quality educations to the local academic field. Oklahoma City University, a liberal arts United Methodist-affiliated school is located in the Uptown district. The university’s OCU School of Law is located downtown and in a renovated 105-year-old building that once operated as the first high school in Oklahoma City.

Oklahoma Christian University, located in Edmond, is also a top-ranked regional university according to both U.S. News and World Report and the Princeton Review.

Other metro options include:
