Student Financial Aid

About Aid

Financial aid consists of scholarships, grants, loans and Federal Work-Study. Some financial aid is merit-based, meaning you compete for awards based on academic achievement. Other aid is need-based or non-need-based and meant to help when your family and personal resources are unable to cover your total educational costs.

Apply for Aid

When applying for student financial aid, it is important to pay attention to dates and deadlines, follow all of the required steps and provide requested documentation.

Accept Aid

Once Ohio State has determined the financial aid package it can offer, you will be notified by email and given instructions to view your package through My Buckeye Link. Note that Ohio State does not negotiate financial aid offers.

Manage Aid

You should be able to manage most student financial aid matters online through buckeyelink.osu.edu by following the information and resources on this website.
