Financial Aid

You can learn more about tuition and financial aid for eCampus students at the links below.

The Office of the Bursar provides official information about tuition and payment, and the Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships provides official information about financial aid.


To be eligible to receive financial assistance, you must file the current year Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov to begin the financial aid process. The Ohio University School Code is 003100. The results of the FAFSA, along with the cost of attendance, will determine whether there is financial need.

If you are eligible, the Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships will notify you after a financial aid award offer has been prepared. The online award offer and status of the FAFSA application may be viewed in your My OHIO Student Center Accounts tab at the My OHIO Portal.

Bachelor's Completion Programs – Community College Partners

If you are pursuing a bachelor’s completion program in conjunction with a Community College Partner, you will be required to complete a consortium agreement if you are planning dual enrollment for the same term. A consortium agreement is a contract between the student, Ohio University, and the Host (Partner) Institution. The consortium agreement must be submitted by the deadline listed on the agreement for the term you intend to dual enroll.

If you will be receiving financial aid for the online bachelor’s degree completion program and plan dual enrollment, you must complete the consortium agreement policy and form, and follow the instructions for submission. The current policy and form, as well as deadlines for submitting the documents, are available on the Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships’ website.

Veterans Administration Educational Benefits

If you are currently serving or have retired from the military, you or your spouse may be able to use funding through the GI Bill. To get started, review the information on the Veterans Affairs page on the Office of the University Registrar’s website. If you have any questions concerning VA benefits for online and distance education, contact the veterans coordinator by phone at 740.566.VETS (8387) or by email at veteransaffairs@ohio.edu.
