Paying for Graduate School

A master's degree, doctoral degree or graduate certificate is an investment in your future, and the OSU-Tulsa Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid can help you get the most value for your money. Whether you’re planning to attend OSU as a part-time or full-time student, our financial aid counselors can help you determine the types of aid available based on your individual situation.

All graduate students should submit the FAFSA

Complete the online Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as early as possible. The school code for the OSU campuses in Tulsa and Stillwater is 003170.

All graduate students should submit the FAFSA, even if you think you make too much money or are not interested in student loans. The FAFSA is used by OSU to award scholarships and other financial aid opportunities.

Check with your employer

Many employers offer some type of education benefit, including tuition reimbursement, tuition assistance, textbook stipends and scholarships. However, according to the Wall Street Journal, less than ten percent of
employees at companies that provide education benefits use them.

Make the most of the benefits available to you! Talk to your employer’s Human Resources department to learn what education benefits they offer. You can then work with your graduate program coordinator to create a schedule that maximizes those benefits.
