Every student is highly encouraged to file the FAFSA to be considered for the most financial aid (including scholarships, grants, loans and Federal Work-Study).

Two things to know:

  1. You must file the FAFSA each year.
  2. The FAFSA is available on October 1 each year. Ohio State’s priority date for filing the 2017-2018 FAFSA is February 1. You can still submit your FAFSA after that date, but filing before will give you priority aid consideration.
