How do I know I am being considered for scholarships?

Once incoming freshmen receive acceptance to the University of Central Oklahoma, they are automatically considered for the automatic academic four-year scholarships. Students must meet the minimum eligibility and submit all required materials by the deadline to be considered. 

Per Oklahoma State Regents Policy, the university is unable to waive a non-resident student’s tuition below the rate of a resident student’s tuition. Stacking multiple scholarship awards may be limited.
