Please note that the login and password are both case sensitive. Once you login, you will be on the “Home” menu. If this is your first time logging in, you will need to change your password.
Changing your password:From the Home menu, click on “Change password” in the top left corner of the screen (under your name). This will bring you to a screen where you must enter your old password, as well as create a new password. Please note that your password requires at least one upper case letter [A-Z], one lower case letter [a-z], and one number [0-9], No spaces, and the password must be a minimum of six (6) characters long. Click “change” and your password will be updated.

My Transcript: By clicking on “My Transcript,” you can view and print an unofficial copy of your student transcript. This allows you to keep track of what courses you have completed, the credits that have transferred, final course grades, etc. Please note that you will not be able to view your transcript if you have a business office hold.
My Schedule: By clicking on “My Schedule,” you can view your schedule of classes for the semester.
My Ledger: By clicking on “My Ledger,” you can view the balance, if any, on your student account. Please note that accepting and declining financial aid will affect your balance. To pay your balance, you will still need to contact the business office at: (405) 789-7661. Please note: You can also track when you will receive your refund on the student portal. Under my ledger if your financial aid says “pending,” your funds are not here yet, and the Business Office does not know when it will arrive. When a date appears beside the financial aid, it has arrived. When you have received enough financial aid that it creates a true credit balance (on statement total line) the check will be sent two weeks after that date. All checks are mailed, not picked up.
My Financial Aid: By clicking on “My Financial Aid,” you can view any grants or loans awarded to you for the semester. Click on “accept” or “decline” for each award you receive Click “submit” at the bottom of the page. Please note: If your award package includes student loans*, and you are accepting them, then you will be required to complete Loan Entrance Counseling and an (MPN) Master Promissory Note. You may do this by going to www.studentloans.gov (If you are a returning student and have already completed this step from a previous year then you do not have to repeat it again.) *Please also note: If you do not want to take out the full amount of loans on your award package you can send a written request. Your request can come by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Just state the amount that you would like to receive. (Example: I (insert name) would only like to take out only enough student loans to zero out my balance.)
My Grades: You can access your final grades by clicking on “My Grades,” and selecting “final grades.” Please note that final grades will only show on your portal once your professor has submitted them to our office for review. Please note that you will not be able to view your final grades if you have a business office hold.
