 We assist students by awarding financial aid to help pay for college. Financial aid is available from federal, state, University and private resources. There are four primary types of financial aid programs.


Scholarships are awarded based on a variety of factors such as academic achievement, major, talent, leadership, geographical location, field of study and/or financial need. Scholarships do not have to be repaid. Tuition waivers are reductions of the credit hour tuition (not fees) you are charged to attend OSU; they are not cash scholarships.


Grants are gift aid that is awarded based on demonstrated financial need. Grants do not have to be repaid.

Student Employment & Work-Study

Funds can be earned by working in exchange for wages. Employment earnings do not have to be repaid. There are many campus employment opportunities for students with or without Federal Work-Study.


Loans are funds that are borrowed to help pay for educational expenses. Loans must be repaid, usually with interest.
