NORMAN, Okla. — The University of Oklahoma announced Monday that the class of 2024 is one of its largest and most diverse freshman classes.

OU officials said this year’s class includes 4,448 freshmen — the third-largest class in the university's 130-year history.

More than 35% of students identify as minorities, 22% are first-generation college students, and a record 78 international students are Davis United World College Scholars, according to university officials.

The university said 600 incoming freshmen qualified for Oklahoma’s Promise and are utilizing OU’s Crimson Commitment resources, which provide tuition and fee support.

We are thrilled to welcome the Class of 2024 to the OU family. Most of these students finished high school under extraordinary circumstances, and they are starting college very differently than most who have come before them. The resilience and spirit of our freshman class is undeniable, and we can’t wait to watch them flourish here at OU.
OU President Joseph Harroz Jr.
