Higher learning

University Students

As a regular reader of this blog, you’re keeping up to date on all the things to do and see in OKC. As you can tell, there’s plenty to keep you entertained. But what about the rest of your day? If you have a hankerin’ for hustle in the form of college credits, you’re in luck – there are more than 140,000 students just like you here, and 18 public and private colleges and universities in Greater Oklahoma City from which you can choose.

Fancy a law degree? You’re covered, counselor. Medical school? The laughter we get from the question is the best medicine. Musical theater? We sing a six-second affirmative (with full orchestral backing and maybe even a twirl and jazz hands). Liberal arts? No fancy analysis necessary. Veterinarian? You vet you can. Want to do research? Get a Ph.D. and be smarter than that can of Dr. Pepper. We’re running out of ridiculous ways to respond to these questions, but rest assured, whatever you want to do in the world of higher education (even if it’s “become a rock star”,) you can probably do justice to your diploma dream here in OKC.

To learn more about the opportunities in higher education in Oklahoma City, check out the Universities section of this website and our “OKC at a Glance” publication.

Higher education

Old North at UCO

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:
