Oklahoma City University is...

An investment in your student's future.

At Oklahoma City University, we know what a big decision it is to decide where your student will spend their next four years. We want to show you why OCU is worth the investment.

An affordable education

We believe our more than $34 million in academic merit- and talent-based scholarships make an OCU education affordable.


After completing the FAFSA process, you will receive an official award letter in the mail. Allow us to walk you through the award letter with a Financial Aid Interview--your financial aid package is just the first step in the process.

OCU can offer your student experiences they have only dreamed about. Our campus culture encourages deep engagement at all levels to allow students to rise to high expectations. With our small and highly competitive student body, location in the heart of Oklahoma City, and close association with corporate and civic leaders, OCU students have substantial access to big-league opportunities.
