Financial Aid

OPSU makes every effort to make higher education affordable to all students. Once a student's financial need has been established, there are several ways in which the University can help.

Assistance for OPSU Students Includes

  • Student Employment through the Federal Work Study Program
  • Student Employment through the University
  • Internal or Privately Funded Scholarships
  • Oklahoma Tuition Aid
  • Indian Tribal Grants
  • Veterans Administration
  • Federal Pell Grants
  • Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grants
  • Direct Student Loan Programs
  • Private Loans

All financial aid paperwork should be completed at least six weeks prior to the beginning of each semester. All correspondence from this office will be through your student email account. It is your responsibility to check this account.


Exit Counseling

If you do not plan to return to OPSU in the Spring of 2019 and you have had a Federal Direct and or Plus loan during your attendance at OPSU, we are asking you to take the time to complete your Exit interview. If you would like to come by our office and complete it there, our office is located in Sewell Loofburrow, room 106.

Complete your Exit Interview

If you have already completed the Exit interview, disregard this notice and have a wonderful summer!

Federal regulations require that any student that has borrowed Title IV loans and is planning to leave or has graduated from the university to complete an Exit counseling interview. The confirmation number will be automatically sent to the Financial Aid office at OPSU.

Thank you.

If you have any questions, please give us a call at 580-349-2611

Message From the Financial Aid Office

I want to remind students that this is not an overnight process. Once you have filled out your FAFSA application at, you will receive a confirmation from FAFSA that your application has been submitted and they will provide you with an estimate of what financial aid you might receive. Please remember that this is just an ESTMIATE. The financial aid office at OPSU will not receive your application for approximately 24-48 hours.

We will then start the process to determine the aid for which you qualify.

Expect this process to take up to 3 weeks if your paperwork is filled out correctly and no corrections are required.

We will correspond with you through the email you entered on your FAFSA or your student email. So please check your email periodically for communication from us. Students are selected at random by the federal government for verification of the income reported on their FAFSA application. When we receive your application we are notified of that request and at that time we will request you and your parents 2013 tax information from you. Depending on how quickly you return that information will also determine how long it takes to process your application.

Please call us anytime with questions but also be patient. It is not an overnight process.

Thank you.
