How important is my credit history?

Credit history is very important. Options are extremely limited for students unable to qualify for Graduate Plus loans and your eligibility is based, in part, upon your credit history.

How do I check my credit history?

Start by ordering your three-bureau report to review your credit history. If your report suggests that securing Graduate Plus loans will be difficult, we encourage you to pursue credit counseling and/or be prepared to secure a co-signer if Graduate Plus loans are necessary for you to pursue a legal degree.

When will I know what kind of financial aid I will receive?

You will receive an award notification approximately three to five weeks after admission.

Who should I contact if I have questions about financial aid?

Contact the Oklahoma City University Financial Aid Department at (405) 208-5211.
