You will need to submit your high school transcripts before an admissions decision can be made. Please upload them here or send them to your admissions counselor. 




Page 6 - Test Scores

The fastest way to get an admission decision is to submit your ACT and/or SAT scores. However, University of the Ozarks emphasizes a holistic admission application review and we believe that factors other than standardized test scores can predict a student's potential to succeed in college. Therefore, we no longer require applicants to submit ACT or SAT scores as part of the admission process. This is called a "test-optional" application process.

Applicants who decide to apply test-optional will receive full consideration for admission, without penalty.






Enter your highest ACT composite score. Valid score values are 1 to 36.




Enter your highest SAT composite score. For tests taken before March 1, 2016, enter your combined Critical Reading and Mathematics score. Valid score values are 400 to 1600. For tests taken on March 1, 2016 or later, enter your combined Evidence-Based Reading and Writing, and Math score. Valid values are 400 to 1600.
You will need to submit your official test scores before an admissions decision can be made. Please upload them here or send them to your admissions counselor. 


Applying Test-Optional

As a test-optional applicant you will be required to:
  1. Submit official high school or home school transcript OR GED scores
  2. Submit a letter of recommendation
  3. Submit an academic writing sample
  4. Interview with a member of the Admission Committee
In addition, you'll need to choose one of the following and submit supporting evidence showing your involvement.
  • Community service or involvement
  • Extracurricular activities
  • Personal or group achievement
We'll send you a follow-up email message with more information after you've submitted your "test-optional" application.

Page 7 - Colleges

Please enter the information requested below for each college you have attended.
Begin typing your college name to find it.








Enter the number of hours you earned at this college. If you aren't positive, enter your best estimate. This will help us know if you're enrolling at Ozarks as a transfer.

If you know your college GPA, enter it here. If you aren't sure, it's Ok to leave this field blank.

Because you answered "Yes" to the question above, you will need to send a letter of explanation to the Office of Admission. You may submit this below or send it to your counselor later.

Page 8 - Jones Learning Center

The Jones Learning Center (JLC) is designed to serve students with documented learning disabilities, Attention Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD), or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) with average or above-average intellectual abilities. This program is available for an additional fee.
 

To complete your application, you will need to submit your most recently completed comprehensive psycho-educational evaluation. To make an admission decision, we prefer an evaluation completed within the last three years.

Based on an initial review of your application and available testing, you may be invited to visit campus for an interview. If your psycho-educational evaluation is not current or comprehensive, you may choose to schedule testing to update your documentation at this time for an additional fee.

If you do not have this now, you can submit it to your counselor later.
