You will be asked to connect with the OSU Financial Aid office and at least one additional resource (from the tool above) before we can consider any financial assistance through the College.
The support application helps us better understand students’ specific needs and offer the most efficient and effective financial problem solving and support we can through our campus partnerships and internal resources. This application is designed with OSU students in mind who are currently enrolled in classes. Filling out the application does not guarantee you will receive funds but will help connect you with various options to help build a network to meet your needs.
