SALT Program Helps Students, Alumni
On the heels of a unique tuition freeze, Oklahoma Christian is offering students a way to find more scholarships and manage their money.
OC has partnered with American Student Assistance to provide free access to SALT. This online site enables students to search for thousands of scholarships, jobs and internships, track their student loans, and boost their financial smarts with interactive lessons and other tools.
“As demonstrated by holding the line on our prices, OC is very concerned about affordability and our students’ financial well-being,” said Clint LaRue (97), director of student financial services. “We believe this partnership will be a wonderful asset for students. SALT will help them find more money to make their education even more affordable.”
The program also is open to OC alumni, who may particularly benefit from the job search tools and financial tutorials. OC students and alumni also receive members-only discounts on computers, other electronics, office accessories, and more.
In addition, students and alumni will have access to ASA’s student loan counselors. These counselors will proactively reach out to help loan borrowers choose the repayment option that best fits their situation. Students and alumni can register and get more information about the free service at www.oc.edu/ saltmoney.
