GrizzText

At OU, we are dedicated to getting you the information you need, when you need it. Through the OU text messaging initiative, GrizzText, you are able to receive reminders about dates and deadlines, and ask questions about things like registration and financial aid. In addition, depending on the messaging channel you subscribe to, you can learn more about campus events and other information you need to stay engaged and empowered.
