Additional Tips
  • Reserve Funds: Students should maintain reserve funds to pay for unexpected costs such as car repairs, medical or dental needs, as well as other unplanned expenses.
  • Be Prepared: Students should come financially prepared with at least 3 months of living expenses to allow for any federal processing or disbursement delays. All institutional charges (tuition, fees, etc.) will be deducted from your federal funds before excess money for living expenses can be refunded to the student.
  • Students may wish to enroll in the Tuition Management Systems (TMS): This is an optional payment plan that divides your outstanding balance into 4 to 12 monthly installments without charging interest. TMS is not financing and does not affect credit. Students can set up a TMS account by visiting or calling them directly at 1.800.722.4867. This method of payment is optional and students can choose to withdraw from TMS at any time in order to pay their charges with an alternative method.
How Tuition management systems (TMS) works:
  • Education expenses for the academic year are totaled (note: books and/or other materials may not be included in the TMS plan).
  • All deductions (such as scholarships, loans, grants, etc.) are subtracted from the education expenses/charges.
  • Total Amount (TMS Contract Amount) = total expenses - total deductions
  • TMS Contract Amount is divided by the number of months in the plan
How to enroll in TMS:
  • Students may enroll on the TMS website at or call them directly at 1.800.722.4867.
  • Be sure to let TMS know you are an ORU student.
  • Give TMS the total expenses that your ORU enrollment counselor has given you for the semester. TMS will divide the total amount due by the number of payments in the plan.
  • Once you are enrolled with TMS, call the Student Accounts offices at 918.495.7401 and give your TMS account number. They will verify that you have made the first month's payment and validate you if all other steps to complete validation have been fulfilled.
Other TMS Information:
  • The annual budget can be found by taking the annual budgeted cost and then dividing by nine in order to get the monthly figure due.
  • TMS will post a $55 late fee to your account if your payment is not received on the first of each month.
  • A monthly statement will be sent to you after each payment.
  • After enrolling in TMS, all further correspondence regarding TMS must take place directly with their offices by contacting them at 1.800.722.4867 or
