College is an important time in your student's life. The college experience not only impacts future career success, but is instrumental to overall development. While your student may not admit to wanting your help, we understand that getting a degree is a family endeavor. Here are some ways you can get involved and support your student.

How to choose the right college

For those who aren't proud Cowboy parents yet, we’ve created a roadmap to help you navigate the often-overwhelming college selection process. Whether OSU is the best fit for your student or not, there are things you can do to help them make the right choice!

Everything you need to know about financial aid

The financial aid process can be daunting, so we collected some information just for parents and families to help you make college more affordable and make important decisions about your financial future.

OSU Parents Association

When your student enrolls at Oklahoma State University, you become part of the Cowboy Family, too! We encourage you to join Cowboy Parents, a support organization for families of OSU students.

Cowboy Parents sponsors activities both on campus and in home communities, including Family Weekends, Dad's Day events, Mom's Day events, scholarships, newsletters and more.
