Special Student Applicants

Applicants for Readmission

Students who have not enrolled within one calendar year are required to submit an Application for Readmission. Applicants for readmission must be approved by the reapplication committee.

Online for Residential Students

On-campus students can complete no more than 26 hours of their program through online courses. They may take up to eight hours of online courses in a given semester (one online course or lab in each of the two seven week sessions) but they must petition to take classes and pay the per credit hour rate above the UG tuition block.  

Curriculum and Course Credit

Course Load and Format

The normal course load for a full-time online student is six credit hours in each term. No student may take more than eight hours in a term without the approval of the Director of Online and Lifelong Learning and the academic department chair.

Courses are delivered in a variety of distance formats that promote the students’ development and higher-level learning using analysis, synthesis, and evaluation skills. Students demonstrate comprehension of course material through responses to objective questions (e.g., matching, short answer, and multiple choice), written work (e.g., answering essay questions, preparing written papers, and doing book critiques), and interacting with classmates in discussions and group projects (in online courses). Careful attention has been given to ensure that the spirit and ethos of Oral Roberts University are maintained in all ORU online courses.

Students must do their own academic work. Coursework done in collaboration with anyone else must be disclosed to and approved by the instructor. Any and all materials obtained from any source (e.g., written, online, verbal) that a student uses in the preparation for any assignment or any other work for submission must be accurately credited and/or cited within the submitted work. A student violating any aspect of academic integrity may receive an “F” in the course involved and may be subject to additional disciplinary action, including possible suspension from ORU.

 

Course Materials

Materials such as textbooks, workbooks, recordings, and other required items may be ordered from the University Bookstore.

 

Test-Outs and Other Examinations
  • Proficiency Exams--Students may be required to take math and/or English proficiency examinations to determine the appropriate courses in which they need to enroll. These exams are designed to facilitate student success in their academic programs.
  • Examinations for Course Credit--To receive credit for courses, students can take test-out exams, which enable them to prove proficiency in a subject and thus eliminate the need to take the course. Students who earn a grade of “C” (70%) or better are given credit for the course. Students who matriculate to ORU may earn up to 30 hours of ORU credit through the test-out process.

 

Prior Learning Assessment

This process recognizes the knowledge that adult learners have gained through non-college courses, on-the-job training, or personal study. Credit may be granted for knowledge acquired that is equivalent to content taught in a specific course. The knowledge must apply to a course(s) in the Oral Roberts University curriculum.

Students should contact their academic advisors for more information on the policies and procedures for Prior Learning Assessment.

 

HPE Requirements

All degree-seeking students are required to enroll in and pass the Discovering Health Fitness and Fitness for Life courses. Every student is required to make satisfactory progress in physical fitness, as demonstrated in each HPE course’s assignments.
