This fall Oklahoma City University welcomed 314 freshmen, 209 transfer students, and 33 new international students into the university’s seven schools, an increase over the previous year. Additionally, 157 new students began their legal studies at OCU Law, and 36 students joined the inaugural class of the Physician Assistant (PA) Program. Increased recruitment efforts and new academic programs are credited with the positive growth.
