Scholarship

A lot of the students I meet are having to take out huge loans to pay for college. Before you assume that you can’t get any scholarships, check out some of these resources:

  • Check your college website for tuition waivers and other local scholarships. [Example: TCC Honors Scholar State Regents Tuition Waiver Scholarships— All TCC Honors Scholars are eligible to apply for the TCC Honors Scholar State Regents Tuition Waiver Scholarship. The scholarship waives tuition for up to 18 credit hours per semester. For more information or an application, contact the Honors Office (918-595-7378).]
  • Find out about Tuition Tax Credits:
  • Check out the Student Guide. The Student Guide is the most comprehensive resource on student financial aid from the U.S. Department of Education.
  • Federal Student Aid. These programs provide more than $60 billion a year in grants, loans, and work-study assistance.
  • Fast Web.
  • Another way to save money is to test out of courses. Use the CLEP Prep online resource for help.
