Step 1: Submit FAFSA and Review Financial Aid Fast Facts for Law Students
U.S. citizens and permanent residents who are not in active bankruptcy or in default of prior federal student loans are eligible to apply for federal loans. This is done through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
The Title IV institutional code for Oklahoma City University is 003166. FAFSA is required for all federal loans.
Step 2: Award Letters
After you have been admitted and submitted your FAFSA, you will receive a Financial Aid Award Notification via student email. Please review and accept your awards via BlueLink immediately. Loans will not be processed without your acceptance.
Please contact Student Financial Services immediately if you:
- Require assistance in acquiring student loans
- Have other questions regarding the aid process
- Have not received an award letter after submitting the FAFSA and any other requested documents

Step 3: Pre-Loan Counseling
All incoming students who have accepted loans must complete pre-loan entrance counseling.
Step 4: Distribution of Aid
If you are receiving financial aid (scholarships or loans), your aid will be credited against your tuition costs. Any excess aid will be refunded to you via direct deposit into your bank account. You will need to fill out a direct deposit form.
Students (or parents) will receive refunds of excess financial aid to be used for living or other educational expenses. This usually occurs 5-7 days after the disbursement date. Refunds for Parent PLUS loans are sent to the parent borrower unless the parent borrower selects to have the refund sent to the student on the loan application.
OCU processes refunds by direct deposit. To ensure your refund is processed in a timely manner, be sure to submit your Direct Deposit Application.
