Come back to OU

Our goal is to see every Oakland University student earn a degree. One of the most rewarding experiences for students, faculty and staff alike is crossing the stage during commencement. Let us help you return, so you may walk away with a degree in hand. You worked so hard to get this far. It’s time to make your comeback.

Some students are short a class or two, have an outstanding bill, or experience unforeseeable circumstances during their degree plan. We understand that life happens. The obstacle standing in your way can most likely be resolved.

Dedicated staff members are ready to help you resolve any issues and make a smooth return to OU. Please contact Registrar Services at (248) 370-4254 to determine next steps and ensure you’re back on the path to graduation. Or you can work directly with a designated academic adviser for your area of study.
