Program Information

First-time undergraduate students entering in a fall semester who are a dependent of an ordained, United Methodist Minister who actively serves the United Methodist Church within the Oklahoma Conference or the Oklahoma Indian Missionary Conference may be eligible for Minister's Dependent Remission.

Minister’s Remission is not always guaranteed and applicants are encouraged to apply for other OKCU Scholarships. Remission is non-stackable with other awards and is only applied after all federal and state grants have been applied. It covers 80-100% of the remaining annual block tuition of 12-16 hours (room and board, fees, and books are not included).

If awarded, students are eligible for renewal for up to eight semesters. Hours exceeding the block tuition structure will be the responsibility of the student and cannot be covered by Minister Remission benefits, university gifts, or endowments.
