For the Fall 2015 Semester:

  • January 1, 2015 – The FAFSA is available to complete on January 1st each year for the following school year, beginning with the Fall semester. We encourage students to apply as soon after January 1st as possible. Priority for programs with limited funds is given to students who file the FAFSA early and respond promptly to any additional information requests made by the OSU Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid.
  • Late February/Early March 2015 - We typically begin receiving new FAFSA application results and requesting any needed documents. Students will be sent an e-mail notification for the receipt of the FAFSA and any documents requested.
  • April 2015 – We typically begin awarding federal/state financial aid for eligible students admitted to OSU and who have completed the financial aid process. Students are notified by e-mail about the award package and deadline for acceptance.
  • July 1, 2015 – deadline for the Health Professions Program consideration. The FAFSA must be completed with all required student, spouse (if married) and parental information. Also any requested documents from the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid must be received complete.
  • Late July 2015 – typical timeframe for our office to notify students of any awards made through the Health Professions Program. Students will receive an e-mail notification.
  • August 2015 – We typically begin disbursement of scholarship and financial aid funds several days prior to the start of the semester. Some funds are not disbursed until several weeks into the semester. Students will receive an e-mail notification shortly before the beginning of the semester to address disbursement of funds.
