Click on the Course Description tab above and refer to your registered course to determine what your consultant has requested you bring, prepare, etc.  You will be receiving textbooks and classroom materials so we encourage all participants to bring a backpack or tote bag.  All participants need to come prepared for inclement weather and also need to be prepared to walk to any scheduled activity outside of the main building.  Some participants find the Forum building to be very cool so a sweater or jacket is HIGHLY recommended.


All classes, except biology, are held at the Thurman J. White Forum Building, 1704 Asp Avenue, Norman, OK.  Biology is held in a lab in Richards Hall on main campus.


Check-in for ALL participants is at the Forum Building from 7:30-8:30a.m.

Opening Session for ALL participants begins upstairs in the Forum Building at 8:30a.m.

Classes will be held Monday through Thursday, July 13-16 from 8:00a.m. - 4:30p.m. each day.


Free parking is available in the lot located southeast of the Forum building.  Parking passes will be issued when participants check in for the Institute on Monday morning.  Those participating in the Biology class will receive a temporary permit for the parking garage located near Richards Hall at the end of opening session on Monday morning.


Lunch and an afternoon snack will be provided Monday through Thursday.  An ATM and vending machine area is located in the center of the Forum building.  Participants will be responsible for all other meals.  A breakfast buffet will be available to those staying at the hotel.  Click on the Housing, Meals and Transportation tab above for food policy.


Double-occupancy hotel accommodations are available to participants who live 35 miles or more from the Forum building (1704 Asp Avenue, Norman, OK).  Mapquest will be utilized to determine the distance from your home address.  Room reservations and roommate requests must be made via the Institute registration form.  Roommate requests will be honored if at all possible and must be mutual.  If no roommate is indicated or if the requested roommate does not register for the Institute or has already made different arrangements, one will be assigned.

There are a limited number of single rooms available.  The $296 single room fee MUST accompany your registration form and may not be reserved via a purchase order.  Single rooms will not be reserved until the fee is paid.  Single rooms MAY NOT be requested at hotel check-in.  All hotel accommodations must be made through our office.


100% attendance is required in order to receive a certificate at the end of the Institute.  Attendance will be taken at various times each day and will be used to verify your record of attendance.  No exceptions allowed.  Please safeguard the Institute dates!


The College of Continuing Education is committed to making its activities as accessible as possible.  The College and the University provide a range of services to persons with disabilities.  If you anticipate a need for some of these services, please contact Sammi Fields at (405) 325-5101 or by email at
