State Financial Aid Information
Just because Oklahoma Christian University is a private institution that doesn’t receive government money for operations, that doesn’t mean students are cut off from any state scholarships.
The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education offers several scholarships and grants to help students pay for college. For more information, call the Student Information Hotline at (800) 858-1840 or (405) 225-9239, or visit www.okhighered.org.
