Resident Freshman Scholarships

This list represents some of the general, university-centralized freshman scholarships for fall 2021, but is not all-

inclusive. Admitted students will be offered the highest scholarship listed in the chart below based on their

qualifications. Students cannot receive more than one of these academic awards. Students may also qualify for

additional need-based financial resources and are encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

As a test-optional school for fall 2021 through fall 2025, OU will consider applicants holistically for scholarships, but it is highly encouraged to submit a test score to ensure the highest scholarship and the fastest notification of an award. To receive the Oklahoma State Regents’ Academic Scholars Program Award or Institutional Nominee scholarship from the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, a student must have a test score on file.
