The tuition scholarship may be used in undergraduate and graduate school but cannot be guaranteed for students in the OSU Center for Health Sciences or the OSU College of Veterinary Medicine (CHS and CVM students may request tuition scholarship from those colleges). The tuition scholarship normally applies to fall and spring terms only. Some restrictions, terms, and conditions apply.
*Scholarships awarded by other offices or organizations may be added to this total package, increasing your total scholarship award up to the cost of attendance. A student may only have one tuition scholarship in effect at any time.
