How do I know if my financial aid is ready to pay and when will it pay?
Generally, OSU scholarships, grants and loans are credited (disbursed) to your university account with the Bursar’s Office. You’ll be able to see your aid in your bursar account beginning the first week of classes.
Please note OSU-Tulsa Scholarships and Tuition Waivers won’t disburse until the 3rd week of classes. Additional information on if your financial aid is ready to pay can be found on the OSU Scholarships and Financial Aid website.
Are scholarships still available?
The last day to submit scholarship application materials, such as test scores or transcripts is the Friday before fall classes begin. If you are planning on starting in the spring, it would be the Friday before spring classes begin.
Privately funded cash scholarships are usually awarded during the spring term for the upcoming fall and spring semesters.
Why hasn’t my scholarship paid to my account?
Frequently, OSU-Tulsa scholarships are paid after the add/drop period at the end of the second week of the regular semester. This is to ensure that students are meeting the enrollment requirements for their specific scholarships.
