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.
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 71% of OU students who applied for financial aid for the 2020-2021 academic year received some type of assistance.
Families can begin completing the FAFSA starting October 1 at fafsa.gov. The earlier it is completed, the better. The FAFSA application takes less than an hour to complete for first-time filers. The FAFSA renewal process can be completed in 10 minutes. You will need the following items:
Suppose you (or your parents) have missed the 2021 tax filing deadline and still need to file a 2021 income tax return with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). In that case, you should submit your FAFSA form now using estimated tax information, and then you must correct that information after you file your return.
The easiest way to complete or correct your FAFSA form with accurate tax information is by using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool through fafsa.gov.
You'll need to add OU's Federal School Code when completing the application so that we receive the students information. Our code is: 003184
