Incoming freshman can automatically receive up to $2,000 per year for four years, depending on their high school GPA and ACT score. Incoming transfer students with a 3.0 cumulative GPA and at least 24 credit hours will automatically receive $500 per year for two years.

Applicants are also automatically submitted for consideration for other select UCO scholarships when they apply for admission by the term deadline.
