OU Account Management

Please note that account access for new users will be dependent upon being fully entered into and processed by the account systems. For new hires, that can include full processing of paperwork by your hiring manager and by HR. For new students, it can take up to five days after receiving your admissions letter before the account is fully accessible in the system. 

If one was an employee who has been terminated or is no longer employed by OU, or if one was a former student and three enrollment periods have passed, then account access will be removed.

Please see this guide for some common account access issues.


To access your OU account, navigate to one.ou.edu and log in with your OUNetID and password. Click your photo in the upper right corner and select Account Settings.

On the right side of the page, view your Account information, including the photo associated with your OU account, your OU Net ID, Sooner ID, and Employee ID (if applicable).
