The FAFSA is required to apply for all types of federal financial aid; including grants, loans, and work-study.  Early application is key to maximize funding opportunities.  Currently, Oklahoma Tuition Aid Grant (OTAG) deadline and funding availability for 17-18 is unknown.  You are encouraged to submit your 17-18 FAFSA by November 15, 2016 to receive best consideration for OTAG funding for the 2017-2018 year; however, the 17-18 FAFSA may be submitted anytime from October 1, 2016 through June 30, 2018.  Submit your 17-18 FAFSA as early as possible at fafsa.gov.   

If yes, federal policy requires ALL outside aid sources to be reported to the Financial Aid Office. Please provide the organization or name of the scholarship and the amount you expect to receive for 2017-2018.

The various USAO Foundation Scholarships are merit awards based primarily on scholastic promise and achievement; although character, service and leadership potential are also considered. Generally, scholarships are awarded to full-time students who maintain a minimum 3.00 GPA without consideration of need for financial assistance. Priority will be given to students who pre-enroll for fall 2017 and whose financial aid packages are complete. Applications received after April 1, 2017 will be subject to availability of funds. Recipients are required to correspond with the donors of the scholarship fund at the address provided on the award letter.
