Follow the checklist for U.S. military veterans to stay on track during the enrollment process.

Once you’re admitted to Oakland University, you’ll be invited to attend orientation.

  • If you have taken college or university courses in the past, you are considered a transfer student and you’ll register for Transfer Student Orientation.

  3. Sign up for priority registration (to register for classes before open registration).
