If you have been contacted about the student applicant review process, or discovered a hold preventing enrollment relating to a felony issue, this means you indicated on your student application that you have been charged or convicted of a felony crime. If you believe this was by mistake and you have not been charged or convicted of a felony crime, this issue can be cleared up without having to appear before the Student Applicant Review Board. To verify that you have not been charged or convicted of a felony, you may need to complete a background check.
** Please contact the Director of Student Conduct to discuss your circumstances prior to proceeding by calling (405) 974-5380 and arranging a meeting at your earliest convenience. **
If the Director of Student Conduct determines you will need to complete a background check, you will use the Student Applicant Disclosure Form link emailed to you from SAEE@uco.edu to go through the disclosure form and background check process. If you do not have any documents related to a felony charge or conviction to upload, please create a Microsoft Word document that states you have not been charged or convicted of a felony crime and upload it to each field so you will be able to submit the Student Applicant Disclosure Form. You will also need to enter a date of your last charge or conviction. If you have not been charged or convicted, you may enter the current date to allow you to submit the form. Once you finish the Student Applicant Disclosure form, you will need to pay $35.00 to complete the background check. You may pay the background check fee here or in person at the University Bursar Window on the 1st floor of the Nigh University Center (remember to bring a copy of the receipt to room 136 for verification of payment). As long as the background check verifies you have not been charged or convicted of a felony crime, you will be reimbursed $25 dollars of the $35.
Once these steps have been completed, contact the Director of Student Conduct at (405) 974-5380 or by email at email@example.com. The Director of Student Conduct will have the background check performed and contact you, once the issue has been cleared, with your next steps in the enrollment process.
