Presidential Scholarship – 3.25 gpa required for renewal and completion of 24 credit hours per academic year.

TCC Honors Award – $25,000 – Awarded to new transfer students who earn an Associate’s degree from Tulsa Community College as an Honors Scholar with a cumulative 3.5 gpa. Incoming freshman with concurrent enrollment from TCC are not eligible for this scholarship.

Phi Theta Kappa – $24,000 – Awarded to new transfer students who have completed at least 30 hours and hold a certificate of membership in PTK.

Tulsa Achieves Award – $19,000 – Awarded to new transfer students who have completed at least 12 hours (or in progress) in the TCC Tulsa Achieves Program.

Endowed and Supported Scholarships – These awards are made possible by the annual earnings of restricted gifts invested with The University of Tulsa’s endowment funds or by gifts given to The University of Tulsa by corporations, foundations and friends of the university.  Most of these awards are used to underwrite university grants and scholarships.

Other Scholarship Awards – Funds from sources outside the university will credit to the student’s account no earlier than the first day of class each semester upon receipt of the funds. Outside scholarships received and TU scholarship funds may be combined up to the student’s federal cost of attendance.  TU will follow the directives issued by the funding source if their guidelines are more restrictive than TU’s policy.  Presidential Scholars may combine outside scholarships up to their federal cost of attendance. It is necessary to report to the Office of Student Financial Services any change in circumstances, including outside scholarship awards not considered in the offer of assistance. By law, the Office of Student Financial Services must make adjustments to prevent or correct “over awards” that may result from the receipt of these outside sources of financial assistance. Adjustments will be in both gift aid (grants/scholarships) and self-help aid (work/loans).


IMPORTANT! If you are a student athlete, you must meet with The University of Tulsa Athletic Compliance Office. There are NCAA rules that may impact the renewal of your TU Academic Scholarship based on your gpa.


Scholarship policies are reviewed annually and are subject to change from year to year.
