Financial Aid

Financial assistance programs are available to students who enroll in the University of Oklahoma. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is used to apply for nearly all types of financial aid including federal, state, and institutional aid.

What is the FAFSA?

The FAFSA (or Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is the government-provided application for need-based funds to help pay for college. OU highly recommends completing the FAFSA regardless of your family's income. Nearly 75% of OU students who apply for financial aid receive some type of assistance. 

The FAFSA opens October 1 each year
