These donated scholarship dollars are used to underwrite (fund) existing university, merit, and need-based scholarships that are a discount of the annual tuition for a student’s specific curriculum. There is not a separate scholarship application process as recipients do not receive additional scholarships.

Outside scholarships

Visit the Oklahoma City University tuition assistance and financial aid website for external scholarship opportunities. Keep in mind that some scholarships are continual while others have set deadlines in February, March, April, May, and June.
