What Next?  GETTING STARTED

While the primary responsibility of paying for a college education lies with the student and his or her family, we are available to assist you with accessing all financial assistance possible to offset the costs of a college education. All students attending OSU Institute of Technology are required to maintain satisfactory academic progress in order to remain eligible for financial assistance. Students are required to be familiar with the Financial Aid Standards of Academic Progress.

The key to accessing the greatest amount of available federal, state, and institutional grants and loans is to apply early:

  1. Obtain an FSA ID to sign online at fsaid.ed.gov. (If you are a dependent student, a parent will need an FSA ID as well.)
  2. To get started, you will need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This is an online process at www.fafsa.ed.gov.  Our school code is 003172. Complete the 2019-2020 FAFSA if you are attending Fall 2019, Spring 2020 or Summer 2020. Complete the 2018-2019 FAFSA if you are attending Fall 2018, Spring 2019 or Summer 2019.
