Doctor of Pharmacy Program > Financial Aid

The Office of Pharmacy Student Affairs coordinates with campus financial aid staff to administer financial aid programs for doctor of pharmacy and pharmaceutical science students. A variety of financial aid programs are available for pharmacy students who have a demonstrated financial need. The Health Sciences Center Student Financial Services administers these programs. Students with questions or problems involving financial issues may contact OUHSC Student Financial Services.

The application process for financial aid requires a minimum of six weeks. It is recommended that all pharmacy students contact Student Financial Services immediately upon notification of acceptance for admission. Students who are eligible for financial aid must apply each year and application for each academic year should be made early in the spring semester. Student Financial Services should also be notified for any significant change in personal or family status that may affect financial need. Such events may include marriage or divorce, a change in the number of dependents living at home, or a change in employment status or income.
