Faculty / Staff

The OSU Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid is here to help students and their families finance their educational dreams. More than 80 percent of the students who attend OSU receive some form of financial assistance; OSU students received more than $320 million during the most recent award year.

We know that the financial and academic concerns of students often overlap and we encourage students to talk with both their academic advisor and staff in the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid as they make decisions regarding their enrollment plans. This page is designed to give academic advisors the financial aid information often used when helping their students.
