Financial aid info for parents
In some cases, we must verify the accuracy of the information submitted on the FAFSA or as a part of the scholarship process. We may ask parents to complete a form to help in that process.
Ways to make an OSU education affordable
College is an investment in your future. Our Scholarships & Financial Aid Office can help you get the most value for your money.
- Nov 1-Early opportunity scholarship deadline
The Early Opportunity Scholarship Deadline is Nov. 1, while all scholarship materials must be submitted by Feb. 1 to ensure scholarship consideration for fall-entering students. Make sure you've also submitted the FAFSA with OSU's school code of 003170.
- 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 orientation & enrollment.
- August 18-Absolute scholarship deadline
Once this date has passed we will no longer make scholarship offers to entering students. Make sure to have any information postmarked by August 18.
- Entering in the Spring semester?
The absolute scholarship deadline for entering OSU in the Spring is the Friday before the semester begins, which is January 13, 2023. All information must have been postmarked prior to this date as well. See the academic calendar here.
