OCU is the only Oklahoma institution listed in the top tier of the master level university category by U.S. News and World Report magazine's "America's Best Colleges" issue. It is currently ranked 23rd among Master's Universities in the West region. More than 78 percent of faculty hold the terminal degrees in their fields; no classes are taught by graduate assistants. Student to faculty ratio is 11:1 and the average class size is 17 for freshmen and 13 for upperclassmen. Although OCU is affiliated with the United Methodist Church, the school accepts students of all religious backgrounds and encourages religious diversity.
