Scholarships & Financial Aid

Scholarships

Apply for scholarships early and often. Some scholarship deadlines are as early as a year before you start college. You do not need to wait until you have made your final decision about your school to apply. Do not worry if you missed out on some of the earliest scholarship applications because there are numerous scholarship opportunities out there with a wide variety of deadlines. The Naviance scholarship list includes several hundred options and limiting that to a more manageable list of categories is as easy as making a few simple clicks.  The CCC posts scholarships opportunities in Naviance, as well as social media. Some scholarships are very quick and easy to apply for, but others take a little more time. Meet all deadlines because missing one could disqualify you.

Financial Aid

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the form that the federal government, states, colleges, and other organizations use to award financial aid. Completing and submitting the FAFSA is FREE and quick, and it gives you access to the largest source of financial aid to pay for college or career school, including monies that are grants or loans. Grants are based on income and do not have to be paid back. Loans collect interest and must be paid back. Submitting your FAFSA application is your key to accessing grants, scholarships, work-study programs, and federal student loans. Completing the FAFSA is a requirement for Tulsa Achieves and is the final check for Oklahoma’s Promise eligibility. Everything starts with the FAFSA, so make sure you complete the application during your senior year and every year you are in college. FAFSA opens October 1st and closes June 30th yearly.  

Apply for the FAFSA

For non-citizens

Although a social security number is required to receive federal financial aid, there are many resources available to assist undocumented students in applying and paying for college. Most students will be eligible for in-state tuition within the state of Oklahoma. Additionally, many scholarships and other forms of financial assistance are available to non-citizens. The College/Career Center provides information and assistance to all students, regardless of their citizenship status. Students and families can start their scholarship search with the following resources, but should make an appointment with their college advisor or another trusted school official to help them explore all of their options for life after high school.

Documents needed to apply for FAFSA

  • An FSA ID to sign electronically
  • Your Social Security number (it’s important that you enter it correctly on the FAFSA!)
  • Your driver’s license number if you have one
  • Your Alien Registration number if you are not a U.S. citizen
  • Federal tax information or tax returns including W-2s, 1040, 1040A, 1040EZ, and other records of money earned
  • Records of your untaxed income (if applicable), such as child support received, interest income, and veterans non-education benefits

If you are a dependent student, then you will also need most of the above information for your parent(s).

Last Day of School is May 22

Friday, May 22 will be the last day of school for the 2019-20 year. Additional time will be added to the school day for students in grades 6-8 beginning Monday, March 23, and continue through the end of the school year.

“Due to two days of school that were cancelled due to inclement weather, the district calendar had to be adjusted to meet the minimum state requirement of 1,080 hours of instruction,” Superintendent Dr. Kirt Hartzler said. “We wanted to adjust the calendar so students don’t have to come back after Memorial Day.

Modifications to the school schedule will be made as follows:

  1. Add one day at the end of the year, with Friday, May 22, being the last day of school;
  2. Elementary schools:  No change to the schedule. They have enough school hours to meet the required 1,080 hours.
  3. 6th & 7th Grade Center:  4 minutes added to the end of the school day effective Monday, March 23 (the day after spring break). 
  4. 8th Grade Center:  2 minutes added to the end of each day after March 23.
  5. Union High School Freshman Academy:  No change to current times.
  6. Union High School:  Friday, April 10 will be a “virtual day,” with students working on assignments from home.
