Oklahoma Panhandle State University Refund to Students

Oklahoma Panhandle State University understands that the disruption to daily life caused by COVID-19 includes financial hardships for many in the Aggie Family. OPSU has finalized refunds in room and board costs and select fees to students for the spring semester. Eligible students have been contacted regarding their refund. OPSU refunded $163,524 to students, with an average fee refund per student of $40, and an average housing & meal plan refund of $397.


In addition to refunding students, OPSU is also able to provide some financial assistance to our students who have been economically impacted by this global pandemic through the federally funded CARES Act.


Student eligibility for financial assistance through the Panhandle State CARES Student Aid Grant is determined by the U.S. Department of Education. Degree seeking students who took at least one “in person” class in the Spring 2020 semester are encouraged to apply. Students not eligible for Title IV funding as set forth by the Higher Education Act, as amended, and concurrently enrolled students are not eligible for the CARES Grant.


If you have not already applied, please complete the short application form at to be considered for your Panhandle State CARES Student Aid Grant. Students will need their student ID number to apply.


OPSU also has academic, activity, and athletic scholarships available. For information on how to apply go to


OPSU looks forward to opening campus with a safe return this fall to face-to-face instruction, hybrid instruction, and online instruction to meet all of the various student needs.
