​STEP 1: Apply for admission.

Go to apply.osu.edu.​

STEP 2: Submit the Special Scholarships Application.

The university offers hundreds of special-eligibility scholarships with a wide variety of eligibility criteria. Submit the Special Scholarships Application by the priority date.

Scholarships have differing eligibility criteria, so it is important that you complete the application thoroughly so you are considered for all scholarships for which you may be eligible.

STEP 3: Watch for your financial aid offer from Ohio State.

If you are eligible for financial aid, you will receive an aid notification email (late March for incoming freshmen, mid-summer for continuing students). Check your university email account for your aid notification email and follow the instructions to review your package. Keep your contact information current via buckeylink.osu.edu​.
