Business Scholarships

At the Meinders School of Business, you will find plentiful opportunities for scholarship dollars.

Many business scholarships only require the application for admission to Oklahoma City University to be considered. However, the most comprehensive information can be learned through a personalized visit with a dedicated financial aid counselor who works closely with parents and students to create a personalized financial aid package.

Freshmen Academic & Departmental Scholarships

Academic scholarships are based on ACT/SAT test scores (excluding writing portion) and high academic ability as indicated by grade point average.
