Financial Aid & Scholarships for Transfer Students

You can certainly reach your goal of becoming a Sooner largely because President David L. Boren is committed to keeping the door of opportunity open for all qualified students. Even though OU’s tuition and fees remain near the bottom of the Big XII, in April 2005 President Boren announced the largest scholarship fund-raising effort in university history, the $50 million Campaign for Scholarships. In unprecedented fashion the five-year goal was reached in almost exactly one year! (The goal was raised in the fall of 2006 to $100 million – we’re just getting started!)

New scholarship opportunities have been created for incoming transfer students like you, while many OU students are already benefiting from the overwhelming success of this effort through Sooner Heritage scholarship awards. From the administration, faculty and staff to our generous alumni and friends, the entire OU family is dedicated to providing access to students who want to attend the University of Oklahoma.


The general transfer scholarship application is located at the end of the online application for admission. March 1 is the deadline for these scholarships.

Financial Aid

Last year 80% of OU students were awarded some type of financial assistance and the total amount of aid for those recipients was almost $130 million. The aid was a combination of scholarships, grants, loans, work-study and tuition waivers. To ensure that you keep all of your options open for covering your cost to attend OU, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid as soon as you can.
