Financial Aid Frequently Asked Questions
Our financial aid staff is working to help you as quickly as possible. The answers below may provide the information you need while we work to return your call or email.
What school code should I use to have my FAFSA sent to OSU-Tulsa?
The school code for both Tulsa and Stillwater campuses is 003170.
What types of financial aid are available?
Complete the FAFSA to determine your eligibility for various types of financial aid. Explore types of aid available on the OSU Scholarships and Financial Aid website.
Available programs will vary depending on your status as an undergraduate or graduate student.
How do I check the status of my FAFSA and financial aid?
I need to turn in documents for my financial aid, how do I do that?
Uploading your documentation directly into your self-service portal is the fastest way for your financial aid to be processed.
You may also fax your documents to 405-744-6438.
How do I accept my OSU scholarships and financial aid?
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 OSU Bursar’s Office. You’ll be able to see your aid in your OSU 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?
For new undergraduate transfer students, you still may qualify for the Regents Distinguished Scholarship. Typically, the final deadline for qualifying is July 1. Due to COVID-19, that deadline has been extended to the Friday before the fall semester starts. The same extended deadline applies to the OSU-Tulsa Transfer Tuition waiver. Privately funded cash scholarships are usually awarded during the spring term for the upcoming fall and spring semesters.
Why didn’t 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.

Do I still need to go to my online classes to keep my financial aid?
Yes, you must still participate in your online classes to remain eligible for financial aid both this semester and in future semesters. Just because these classes are online does not change your financial aid.
What happens if I need to withdraw from one of my classes?

You may have to pay some of your aid back if you withdraw from all classes. Contact us so we can advise you.
Can I still receive financial aid for this semester?
Yes. If you haven’t filed the FAFSA we encourage you to do so as soon as possible. If you have already done so, you need to check your financial aid portal at my.okstate.edu. Requirements that are still missing need to be completed as soon as possible. You can upload documents on your portal. If you are unable to use the document upload tool, you can fax them to us at 918-594-8114 or mail them to us at 700 North Greenwood Ave, Tulsa, OK 74106, as we are receiving mail as usual.
I can't work at my Federal Work-Study position, what am I supposed to do?
We know that many of our Federal Work-Study students are unable to work at their work-study jobs right now due to the COVID-19 situation. We aren’t able to address these concerns at this time but hope to do so soon. Check back here for updates.
I heard I don't have to pay interest on my student loans?
You need to contact your loan servicer for any questions regarding the “pause” on federal loan interest accrual. The “pause” is available to borrowers of Direct Subsidized, Direct Unsubsidized, Direct Parent PLUS and Direct Graduate PLUS loans. If you don’t know who your loan servicer is go to studentaid.gov.
