Freshmen University Academic Merit Scholarships

Priority Deadline: March 1, 2016.
(see description for details)

Description:
Academic scholarships are based on ACT/SAT test scores (excluding writing portion) and high academic ability as indicated by grade point average. To receive any Oklahoma City University merit based scholarships, incoming Fall 2016 freshmen students must submit their application and all required documents* by the priority deadline of March 1, 2016. After the priority deadline scholarship amounts are not guaranteed. Full-time enrollment of 12 or more hours per semester is required for scholarship.
