You can also contact our office to schedule an in-person appointment or schedule a virtual appointment with your assigned financial aid advisor. Required financial aid documents can be submitted using our Secure Upload Portal (see our Troubleshooting Guide for assistance) or faxed to 740.593.4140. Documents can also be dropped off in our office or placed in the drop box located inside the south entrance doors on the ground floor of Chubb Hall (Court Street side of the building). Please make sure your name and student PID number are listed on all documents. You are encouraged to frequently visit your My OHIO Student Center to review your To Do List to see if any items are needed to complete the processing of your financial aid.
