Financial Aid Process
International students are generally not eligible to receive federal, state or most institutional funding. Eligibility for most financial aid requires that you are a U.S. citizen or an eligible non-citizen. If you are considered a U.S. National, or a U.S. Permanent Resident you may be eligible for some types of aid. To determine your status visit studentaid.gov/understand-aid/eligibility/requirements/non-us-citizens.
If you are entering the country on a student visa, contact the Ohio State Office of International Affairs for more information about aid resources.
