If a program says that the “grade range” is 82%, and I have 80%, can I still apply?

Program Information and Requirements

Yes. The grade range on OUInfo is not a cut-off point, but a general guideline that is based on the previous year’s admission. The range varies each year according to the number and quality of applicants.

For example, if fewer students apply to a given program this year, the grade range will likely decrease, and vice-versa, if more students apply.

Also, many universities consider supplemental information in addition to your academic average in admission decisions, including: 

  • Essays
  • Portfolios
  • Interviews
  • Personal information forms

Contact the universities directly for more information about admission requirements.
