The University of Central Oklahoma is dedicated to providing reasonable tuition to our international students and their families. UCO acknowledges and promotes student accomplishments by awarding scholarships and awards based on academic merit, fine arts talent, and athletic ability. Other awards are given to people who are in financial need. Both types of rewards are available to students.


About the Scholarship:

The University of Central Oklahoma, sometimes known as the Central or UCO, is a non-profit research and higher education institution in Edmond, Oklahoma, United States. It was established as a Territorial Normal School in 1890 and began classes in 1891, making it Oklahoma’s oldest such institution. The institution’s name was changed to Central State Normal School in 1904, then to Central State Teachers College in 1919, and finally to Central State College in 1939. The state legislature gave it the ability to issue postgraduate degrees in arts and business administration in 1971, and it was given the name Central State University as a result. In 1991, UCO changed its name to its current one. UCO has a lovely campus that spans 210 acres and houses 34 state-of-the-art buildings that provide academic, administrative, recreational, and other support services to students. A wellness center, library, Y Chapel of Song, and high-tech laboratories are among the university’s amenities. Three coed residence buildings on campus provide traditional-style rooms for both men and women. Up to 302 students can be accommodated in the University Suites. Apart from that, UCO offers a number of apartment complexes with four- and two-bedroom apartments, as well as a community clubhouse. UCO offers 114 undergraduate majors and 58 postgraduate degrees in science, liberal arts, business, mathematics, education, fine arts, professional studies, and design through its six colleges. The university’s Forensic Science Institute offers students an interdisciplinary program that combines educational, research, and training possibilities. It also features the UCO Connected Campus, which offers a variety of online degrees to working professionals and others with busy lives. The institution has 250 active student organizations that strive to promote academic, personal, and social interests while also developing relationships between communities. It is a member of the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association as the Bronchos, with a sports affiliation from the National Collegiate Athletic Association. Currently, the university has around 17,000 students from 47 states in the United States and more than 100 countries across the world. A total of 1500 international students make up the student body. There are 434 full-time academic affiliates and 400 part-time academic affiliates on the roster. The student-to-faculty ratio at WU is 19:1, with a class size of 20 to 25 students. UCO provides a comprehensive list of graduates living all over the world, including individuals who have achieved great success and have been acknowledged for their contributions in their professions. Jim Beaver (Actor), Lauren Paige Nelson (Miss America 2007), Stanley Wright Case (Broadcast Journalist and Lawyer), Milena Govich (Actress), Robin Freeman (Professional Golfer), Clifford D. Chatman (Former Football Fullback), Paul Wight (Actor and Professional Wrestler), Donna Campbell (Physician and Politician), James Milton Heflin (Retired NASA Official), Bijan Allip (Actor and Professional Wrestler), Donna Campbell (Iranian Business Executive). Nonremedial tutoring, a women’s center, placement services, and health services are among the student services provided by the University of Central Oklahoma. The University of Central Oklahoma also provides 24-hour foot and vehicle patrols, late-night transport/escort service, 24-hour emergency telephones, lighted pathways/sidewalks, and controlled dormitory access as part of its campus safety and security services (key, security card, etc.). At the University of Central Oklahoma, students of legal age are not permitted to consume alcohol. The college reported campus safety data to the US Department of Education, but it has not been independently confirmed. The figures for criminal offenses reflect complaints of alleged offenses to campus security and/or law enforcement, not prosecutions or convictions. Experts urge prospective students and their families to conduct their own study to assess a campus’s and surrounding area’s safety. The University of Colorado at Boulder’s College of Education and Professional Studies provides 27 undergraduate and 14 graduate degree programs. The objective of the college is to provide great programs that dynamically fulfill the requirements of a changing society while also preparing individuals to be outstanding professionals in the different teaching and non-teaching professions represented at the college. 88 full-time faculty, 90 part-time faculty, and 30 staff personnel educate about 2500 undergraduate and 850 graduate students across the college, grouped into eight departments. In 2005, the college’s name was changed to better represent both the education programs aimed to aid persons in pursuing teaching jobs as well as other exceptional programs in professional areas such as psychology, kinesiology, and speech language pathology, among others.
