Financial Aid. A Profile of Financial Aid in Oklahoma PUblic Higher Education, 1974-75 through 1983-84.
Hagy, Joe E.; Hobbs, Dan S.
Information on financial aid at public institutions of the Oklahoma State System of Higher Education for 1974-1975 through 1983-1984 is presented, with a focus on systemwide norms, averages, and distributions for grants, loans, scholarships, and employment. In 1983-1984 financial aid was awarded to 30.5 percent of the unduplicated students at public institutions, representing 57.7 percent of the full-time equivalent (FTE) student load. This is a one-third increase in the percent of FTE students receiving aid more than 10 years before. In recent years roughly one third of the financial aid has been made up by loans, one third by grants, one fourth by student employment, and the remainder by scholarships. Employment is considerably less important in 1983-1984 than in 1974-1975 as an element of financial aid. Comprehensive universities, with their time-extending graduate and professional programs, consume the largest proportion of financial aid. In 1983-1984, the average dollar amount of financial aid by student at the comprehensive universities was $2,686 compared to $1,501 at regional universities, and $539 at two-year institutions. Minorities participate in the financial aid programs at rates greater than their proportional student enrollment. (SW)
