Scholarships are available annually for many students who require financial assistance to attend college and have demonstrated above average academic ability. Funds are provided by the Oklahoma State Regents and the CASC Development Foundation, which solicits and accepts contributions from individual and organizational donors. Most scholarships are awarded on the basis of financial need; others are awarded for academic achievement or other significant contributions to the College. A Scholarship Committee is responsible for the selection of students to receive scholarships. All funds are processed through the Business Office.
