The university pays a portion of the insurance premiums for benefits eligible employees as part of their total compensation package. These contributions are called "Sooner Credits" and are used for the core insurance programs: medical, dental, life insurance, and accidental death & dismemberment.
Full and part-time employees classified to work between 20 and 40 hours per week are eligible for benefits. The Sooner Credit amount contributed for each employee is prorated based on their full-time equivalency
(FTE) as shown below.
