Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This index doesn’t take into account students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture.

Student Reviews and Ratings for University of Central Oklahoma

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

This university has a liberal agenda. The only people I've ever seen punished here are white, christian, men. The professors can literally not teach a thing, test you over complicated topics and there is nothing you can do about it. I've reported terrorist threats and they were not investigated by either uco police, edmond police, or the office of student conduct. Apparently gay people can look at you through stall doors when you're using the restroom and they won't be investigated. Uco is a biased school. If you are white, a christian, a man, a patriot, or all the above, then this is not the school for you. If you are a hard working student who falls into these categories then you will also be discriminated against. Also, international students get special treatment from the university. I've seen it. I can't wait to leave. I'm only here cause it's the only place in oklahoma where you can study forensic science and criminal justice.

I spend two semesters in UCO. I really love the campus area. Its big, nice, beautiful. I love the fact that the Library is open until late night. Broncho lake is definitely one of the best attractions. I also loved all the professors I had taken the class with. The only thing that bothered me was the service at the international admissions. It seemed like all they cared about international students was the tuition fees they pay.

The building is nice and I haven't enrolled yet, but I've had the worst experience trying to see an academic advisor. I tried to call to make an appointment and they answered and said they would transfer me over to someone else and it rang for five minutes and then hung up on me. I tried to use the website to make an appointment and it said none available and wasn't working. I then emailed and someone told me to call or use the online service, even after I told her I already tried and nothing was working. She said I wouldnt be able to enroll until April 11th anyway and that I wouldn't need an appointment for several weeks and advisors were on a walk in basis the week of the 26th. So today I drive two hours to the campus and the ladt tells me I have to have an appointment and my advisor is booked until thursday. So, now I have to waste 4 hours of my life again driving up here. Terrible terrible service to students. It's so difficult. Atleast now I have an appointment. Aside from that everything is fine.

Friendly faculty and learning environment. Small classes will allow you to know your professors more closely than larger universities.

Overall Rating:

Our constitutional right to free speech and the free exercise of religion, guaranteed under the First Amendment, have been denied with this school. You can have drag shows and safe sex carnivals but don't you dare come speak on Genesis and the state for the culture (don't forget the Muslims, Christians, and Jews share the Genesis account) so its a attempt to muzzle all religious beliefs outside their own (anti-God secular humanism). I don't understand how universities and colleges can claim to be unbiased and inclusive all while trying to mute religious institutions (and still get federal funding!!!). That seems bias and non inclusive. Not to mention unconstitutional.
