OSU-Tulsa Offering Tuition Assistance

Oklahoma State University-Tulsa unveiled a new tuition assistance program recently in an effort to help students and their families with tuition expenses during the current economic downturn.

The “OSU-Tulsa Cowboy Commitment” offers a $650 tuition waiver for the spring semester to eligible students transferring to OSU-Tulsa from any college or university throughout Oklahoma. Based on their grade point average, students can earn the waiver for up to three semesters.

“When visiting with students and their parents, we find they are worrying about the current economic situation and how to pay for college,” says OSU-Tulsa President Gary Trennepohl. “There’s no better investment that you can make in your future than earning a college degree. We understand that times are tough, so OSU-Tulsa wants to help.”

To be eligible for the Cowboy Commitment waiver, incoming transfer students must enroll in a minimum of six credit hours per semester at OSU-Tulsa. Students who transfer with a 3.5 GPA and above will receive a $650 waiver each semester for three semesters. Students transferring with a GPA between a 3.0 and 3.49 will receive a $650 waiver per semester for two semesters. Finally, students transferring with a GPA between 2.5 and 2.9 are eligible for one $650 waiver.

Trennepohl says the new program reflects OSU-Tulsa’s commitment to the community and state.

“We believe in our graduates and are committed to both their education and the impact they’ll make on our state’s economy and workforce. This scholarship program is a smart investment for everyone involved,” Trennepohl says.

The Cowboy Commitment tuition waiver is available for the spring 2009 semester. For more information, contact OSU-Tulsa’s Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid at 918-594-8273 or visit www.osu-tulsa.okstate.edu.
