Student newspaper of Eastern Oklahoma State College


Eastern Oklahoma State College has obtained funding from the federal American Rescue Plan Act to distribute to students to help with expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Eastern is working to finalize its distribution of the funds as quickly as possible.

Eastern students who were actively enrolled in three credit hours or more during the summer 2021 semester and who meet the federal eligibility requirements are eligible for these additional funds.

Funds from the American Rescue Plan are for any component of the student’s cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arose due to COVID-19, such as tuition, food, housing, health care (including mental health care) or childcare.

If you have designated your direct deposit choice through www.eosc.edu then your refund should be deposited into your account by Oct. 1.

If you have not designated your direct deposit choice, a paper check will be issued to you and mailed to your home address. This could add a couple of weeks to the process. In order to receive any future refunds faster,  log in to Self Service and designate your direct deposit choice.
