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 February in order to meet the first priority FAFSA deadline for campus-based financial aid programs, which is March 15.

The following documents must be obtained before you begin to complete the FAFSA:

  • most recent Federal 1040 Tax Return for student and/or spouse and/or parent(s) or guardian(s) and
    W-2 forms

  • documentation of any nontaxable income such as social security, child support, ADC, worker's compensation, etc.
    (Be sure to keep a copy of your tax returns and W2 forms because the university may need a copy.)


If you have questions or need help completing the FAFSA, contact the Financial Aid Office at 740.588.1439 or
