Delays to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) process have significantly impacted prospective students across the country who depend on financial aid offers to determine where they’ll attend college. 

To ensure families have more time to make informed decisions, Oklahoma State University has extended its admission and scholarship deadlines to June 1 for students entering in fall 2024. 

“Supporting students is our top priority,” said Karen Chen, OSU vice president of enrollment management. “Value and affordability are important in the college decision process, and we want families to have more information about their scholarship and financial aid opportunities so they can confidently take their next steps at OSU.” 

Students now have until June 1 to accept scholarships and financial aid or receive a partial enrollment deposit refund. OSU also highly encourages students to register for housing and sign up for orientation and enrollment by June 1. 

As soon as OSU receives student FAFSA records, which the Department of Education announced won’t be until mid-March, students will receive their financial aid and scholarship award offers. Students eligible for university assured and other merit-based scholarships are currently notified after admission. 

“We’re doing everything we can to proactively communicate with families and remain flexible as we receive updates from the Department of Education,” Chen said. “Our financial aid and admissions counselors will continue offering one-on-one appointments throughout the spring and summer to discuss financial aid offers and assist students and their families.” 

Students interested in attending OSU this fall should apply for admission and submit their FAFSA using OSU’s school code 003170. 

“Ultimately, we want to help students attend OSU and support them from the time they enroll through graduation, and celebrate their accomplishments along the way,” Chen said.
