Federal Student Aid programs
A student must be a citizen or eligible noncitizen to receive aid from the Federal Student Aid programs. The general requirement for eligible noncitizens is that they be in the U.S. for other than a temporary purpose with the intention of becoming a citizen or lawful permanent resident, as evidenced by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
- Dec. 1-Competitive scholarship awarding begins
Due to the current circumstances of COVID-19 and the challenges with standardized testing, we are extending our scholarship deadline to Feb. 1 for all students. However, we will begin awarding some competitive scholarships as early as December, so we encourage you to submit your application materials (including test scores) as early as they are available for consideration.
- Feb 1-Priority scholarship deadline
Applications received after February 1 may not be considered for all scholarship programs and will be considered only if funds remain. Make sure you have sent a new transcript from your high school showing your Fall grades. Keep an eye on your my.okstate.edu for updates.
- May 1-National College Decision Date
Some scholarships and financial aid must be accepted by May 1 or they may be cancelled. It's also important for incoming freshmen to register for housing and New Student Orientation.

Once this date has passed we will no longer make scholarship offers to entering students. Make sure to have any information postmarked by July 1.
