Freshmen Academic Scholarships
All Oklahoma residents who are incoming freshmen and are fully admitted to SWOSU by the March 1st Priority Deadline will be automatically considered for Freshmen Scholarship awards. By completing the admissions application (including high school transcripts and ACT scores), you are essentially applying for all academic awards at SWOSU. There is no longer a separate application required for Freshmen Scholarship Awards. Additional scholarship information can be found here.
Application for Student Aid
You may get a Federal Student Aid application form from the SWOSU Financial Aid office or you may apply over the Internet at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/ instead of using the paper form. In addition to federal student aid, you may also be eligible for HOPE or Lifetime Learning income tax credit, both of which you claim when you file your taxes. For more information on these tax credits, the Application for Federal Student Aid, and the U.S. Department of Education's student aid programs, call 800.433.3243 Monday thru Friday between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Eastern time or look on the Internet at https://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ope/index.html?src=mr.
