Welcome to Ohio State Marion Financial Aid. We are committed to helping you make your college education affordable. We offer a variety of services and programs designed specifically to help you find ways to meet your educational expenses. Our staff is dedicated to making sure you receive your aid in a timely and efficient manner.
Your financial aid package may consist of a combination of scholarships, grants, loans, and part-time work through the Federal Work Study program or other outside employment.
While you may apply for financial aid at any time, the priority deadline to apply in order to maximize all your possible financial aid options at The Ohio State University is February 1 for students planning to enroll for classes in the following academic year.
To be considered for financial aid for the 2020-2021 school year, you should submit the following applications as soon as possible after October 1, 2019, and no later than the university’s February 1, 2020 priority deadline:
- Marion Campus Scholarship Application (current students ONLY) - Scholarship applications received from current or returning Ohio State students after the February 1 deadline will be processed on a funds-available basis only. Scholarship award amounts for current/returning students are based upon cumulative Ohio State grade point average (GPA), financial need, as well supply vs. demand for available scholarship funds, which varies from year-to-year. In most years, a current/returning student must have a cumulative GPA as of February 1 of at least 2.7 in ordered to be considered for a potential award.
- Free Application for Federal Student Aid (F.A.F.S.A.) - This application covers all Federal and State of Ohio aid, including Federal work-study and student loan programs.
- Special Eligibility Scholarship Application
- Other Ohio State College and Departmental Scholarship Applications
- Outside Scholarships - Also, check with your local high school guidance office and community foundation for local scholarship information.
Applying for financial aid does not obligate you to enroll nor does it guarantee an award; it only begins the process of your financial planning in anticipation of your possible enrollment.
