Scholarships at the University of Central Oklahoma

Your UCO Admissions Application will apply for Academic, Leadership and Oklahoma State Regents scholarships. Some academic and leadership scholarships require an interview. If selected for an interview, you will be contacted at the end of February. You must complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) at www.fafsa.gov to be considered for scholarships. Recipients of scholarship awards will be notified by letter or email. Students not receiving awards will not be notified. 85% of incoming freshmen scholarships are awarded through the online application at www.uco.edu/apply. However, we encourage all freshmen to look for additional opportunities and information in the resource section online at www.uco.edu/scholarships. In addition, if you are a current UCO student, you may want to create an online scholarship profile through our portal located at scholarships.uco.edu.


Meeting the minimum qualifications of a specific scholarship does not guarantee the receipt of the scholarship.
