When you call Oklahoma WIC clinic, you will get an appointment. A representative will interview you and decide whether you meet eligibility guidelines for the program or not.

In order to qualify for Oklahoma WIC, you will have to meet these basic eligibility requirements:
- Be a U.S citizen or a qualified alien
- Be a resident of Oklahoma

Once you meet these requirements, you will have to meet categorical requirements for the program. The following can receive benefits through Oklahoma WIC:
- Pregnant women
- Breastfeeding women
- Postpartum women
- Infants up to age of 1 year

In addition to meeting general and categorical requirements, applicants will also have to meet income requirements to receive benefits through Oklahoma WIC.
