Giving to CEPS

As a college we are committed to providing our students with the highest quality educational experience in the State of Oklahoma. However, we know this cannot be accomplished without much needed private support for faculty/staff development, program development, and student scholarship support.

Giving to the College of Education & Professional Studies is easy. You may designate your gift to any of the CEPS scholarships or program accounts listed below by visiting centralconnection.org to designate your tax deductible gift or pledge. To view the purpose of each fund, click on the individual account and a description will appear. If you have questions or would like to set up a scholarship or have your gift designated somewhere else in the college, please contact the Development office at 974-2770 for more information.
