Ohio University students who file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) may be for eligible need-based aid, including grants, subsidized loans and/or federal work-study. Grant awards are considered gift aid and do not need to be repaid. Federal subsidized loans do need to be repaid after you graduate or leave shcool, but interest does not accrue while you are enrolled. Work-study is a federally funded program that allows you to earn money to pay for your educational expenses.
Applying for federal student aid is free, and you can obtain the FAFSA form at your high school guidance office in January of your senior year or online. Filing in January or early February ensures you'll get priority consideration. Need-based aid is only available to U.S. citizens and permanent residents.
Ohio University's school code is 003100.
Special Note to Transfer Students:
Students who are transferring to Ohio University from another institution should request that their FAFSA results be sent to Ohio University's Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships as early as possible. Financial aid does not automatically transfer from one institution to another.
