As the largest four-year university system in the state, the Regional University System of Oklahoma governs six of the state’s universities. 
These institutions enroll more than 37,000 students each year.  


Our mission is to provide higher education programs for Oklahoma universities and services to eligible students in the university service areas and prepare students to succeed in a global society.


92% of our graduates stay in 
Oklahoma. That means thousands of well-educated citizens are ready to lead the state into the future.


Nearly 40% of all Oklahoma graduates come from RUSO institutions.

And our institutions exceed the national average in affordability.


Oklahoma taxpayers will earn $8.38 through every $1 they invest in a RUSO student. 

RUSO graduates stay in the state, increase the per capita income and contribute to the economy.

RUSO universities create Oklahoma's degreed workforce in fields that include nursing, teaching, optometry, aviation, pharmacy and forensic science.


RUSO was created on July 6, 1948. All RUSO universities are more than 100 years old.
