RSU was founded in 1909 – just two years after Oklahoma was granted statehood. The university was officially established as Eastern University Preparatory School in Claremore by the Oklahoma Legislature in its second session. 


Rogers State University has a long and proud history as a high-quality institution of higher learning serving the educational and professional needs of residents of the Claremore area, northeastern Oklahoma, and, via its distance learning programs, the nation and the world.


Rogers State University views strategic planning as an ongoing cyclical process designed to improve institutional effectiveness and align the university with its environment.

Strategic planning provides an opportunity to advance a learning culture that emphasizes and fosters the making of informed decisions in the short term about the best use of limited resources in order to position the institution to prosper and deliver maximum value to its many stakeholders in the future.


Rogers State University Career Services guides and inspires students and alumni to take charge of their personal and career development.

Career Services provides assessments that enables you to know the appropriate educational and career path, consulting that helps you explore majors and careers, assistance with securing internships to gain experience, and support as you transition to that next step.

Student Life

Campus life

It’s often those times you share outside of the classroom that provide you with some of the greatest lessons you’ll learn during your time at RSU, such as:

  • making new friends
  • participating in campus events
  • being part of student organizations
  • helping those less fortunate in the community
Campus life connects students with the means to experience the fullness of the RSU experience. Be sure to get the most of it! 

Sports facilities

The mission of Rogers State University athletics is to provide quality athletic opportunities for its student-athletes, to take responsibility for their academic success and personal growth, and to engage and enhance our campus and community through competition, service, and positive representation.
