Federal, State, and Institutional Financial Aid Programs

Beginning for the 2017-2018 aid year, the suggested target date for filing the FAFSA is October 1. Applications submitted after that date will be subject to available funds.

Federal Pell Grant

Federal Pell Grant is for undergraduate students who have not received bachelor's degree, and display financial need based on the Estimated Family Contribution (EFC), calculated on the FAFSA. Awards range from $606 to $5,920 per year.

Federal regulations stipulate that a recipient can receive Pell for no more than 12 semesters, or the equivalent (for example, 2 semesters of half-time attendance equals 1 full semester of Pell eligibility.)

Federal SEOG (Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant)

Federal SEOG award is for undergraduate students with demonstrated financial need. The average award is $1,000 per year. Funds are awarded first to students who are Pell eligible with the lowest family contribution, then to those who are not Pell eligible.

Oklahoma Tuition Aid Grant

Students must be a legal resident of Oklahoma and enrolled in at least six hours, pursuing a first undergraduate degree. OTAG awards are determined by the Oklahoma State Regents based on information from the FAFSA. The Regents Office notifies students and OUHSC of eligibility.

Students are urged to file a FAFSA as soon as possible after October 1, as funds are limited and awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.  Generally applicants who meet all criteria, and file by March 1 will be awarded OTAG. Currently the Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) cutoff is 1700.

Oklahoma's Promise

Eligible Oklahoma students enroll in the Oklahoma's Promise program in the 8th, 9th, or 10th grade if their family's income is $55,000 or less at the time the student applies. There will be an annual income verification every year the student is in college that may not exceed $100,000. Oklahoma's Promise students must take specific courses in high school, must maintain good grades, and must stay out of trouble. Students receiving Oklahoma's Promise will receive free tuition at the Oklahoma institution they choose to attend.

Students receiving Oklahoma's Promise need to contact our office by phone, by email, or visit the office to let us know. We will then verify your eligibility with the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. On average, the earliest these funds can be disbursed will be one month after the beginning of each term.
