Financial Aid and FAFSA

Financial Aid Guidelines
 

In order to receive financial aid, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
This form is available online at the FAFSA website or in the Office of Student Services after January 1 each year. By completing the FAFSA, students can be considered for grants, loans, scholarships and federal work study.


-- When you fill out the FAFSA, you will be asked for a school code. Ohio University - Zanesville's school code is 003108.


Admission to Ohio University must be completed before financial aid can be awarded. For assistance with your financial aid needs, you can consult with the financial aid coordinator, Vicki DeLucas or the staff in Student Services.


File the FAFSA by March 1 in order to meet the first priority FAFSA deadline for campus-based financial aid programs.


In order to complete the FAFSA, you will need:

  • Federal 1040 Tax Return for the previous calendar year for the student and/or spouse and/or parent(s) or guardian(s) and W-2 forms
  • Additional documentation of any nontaxable income such as social security, child support, worker's compensation, etc.

If you have questions or need help completing the FAFSA, contact the Financial Aid Office at 740.588.1439 or
e-mail ouzfinaid@ohio.edu.
