These pages provide instructions on how to apply to SOU and obtain financial aid. If you do not intend to formally apply for admission, see instructions for Non-Admit Status to find out how to register for an online course. This Online Student Checklist will guide you from the application process through your first day of classes.

Apply for Admission

Students interested in a degree completion program or a graduate or post-baccalaureate program must complete one or more applications for admission. Detailed instructions for completing an online application are available in PDF format and video format.
