Financial Aid Process
Financial aid for students who transfer to Ohio State from another university or college consists of scholarships, grants, loans and Federal Work-Study. Financial aid is need-based or non-need-based and meant to help when your family and personal resources are unable to cover your total educational costs.
The Ohio State University makes every effort within its means to help students secure the funds to pay for college. Financial aid may be limited for transfer students depending on when they apply to Ohio State.
Your first step in finding out what aid you might be eligible for is to file the
FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).
Note: If you are changing from one Ohio State campus to another you are considered to be a current student. Click on the "Current Students" tab above or go to campuschange.osu.edu for more information.
