The Federal Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) can be completed online at fafsa.ed.gov. Include OU’s Federal School Code of Financial Aid
Financial aid is processed through OU and is deducted from the OU bill. Financial aid is not reflected on the Macomb bill; students must pay their tuition bill at Macomb based on the payment deadline established there. A student’s social security number is required to be on file at both OU and Macomb for tax reporting and financial aid purposes. Financial Aid
If you receive financial aid, it will be applied to your OU bill. If you do not have any OU charges or if you have more than enough financial aid to cover your OU bill, you will receive a refund. OU cannot send your refund to Macomb. Financial Aid
