Explore Costs and Aid

An Ohio University degree is an investment, one that allows 93% of our graduates to gain employment or pursue further education within one year of graduation. We are continuously striving to make college more affordable and accessible, while maintaining the high quality and value of an OHIO education.

Ohio University President Duane M. Nellis, as part of the statewide Forward OHIO campaign, is working on several initiatives aimed at reducing student debt, increasing degree completion, and reducing the time it takes to earn a degree. The OHIO Guarantee® ensures that costs are predictable and that scholarships and financial aid packages hold their value while students work toward a degree. Additional efforts at increasing affordability include joining the Open Textbook network and partnering with Top Hat to make open, license-free educational materials available to students.

A consortium agreement is a contract between the student, Ohio University, and the host (partner) institution and must be submitted by the deadline listed on the agreement for the term you intend to dual enroll.
