Athletics are active on SWOSU's main campus. Go Bulldogs!
Outstanding athletic ability is rewarded at SWOSU through a range of scholarships. Most are awarded in the way of tuition scholarships, but some also include room, board and/or books.
If you’re interested in applying for these awards, you are encouraged to schedule a campus visit in order to meet with a coach. Visits may be arranged by contacting the Admissions and Recruitment Office at 580.774.3782; firstname.lastname@example.org, or by contacting the appropriate sport's coach in the SWOSU Athletic Department.
Student athletic scholarships are awarded to SWOSU athletes by their coaches in compliance with the policies and procedures of the University and the NCAA. Each team is assigned a scholarship limit by the NCAA based on the total number of full grant-in-aid awards the sport is allowed to offer during the academic year. The head coach decides how to distribute the funds among the student athletes.
Competition for athletic scholarships is fierce. The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) estimates that there are more than 8 million high-school student athletes in the U.S. Of those, less than half a million go on to play at an NCAA school. All of those athletes are vying for a scholarship.
