 CASA is working with the Offices of Admissions, Financial Aid, and University Housing & Dining to better serve Latino/Chicano/Hispanic students.

Here is a brief introduction to what these offices have to offer. Also note that University Housing & Dining has its own link that is right below this one.


Financial Aid

The Office of Financial Aid is here to help you invest in your future. They offer many financial aid choices for undergraduate and graduate students.

The types & amounts of aid OSU can offer you for a particular academic year are listed on your Financial Aid Award Letter. Your aid package is designed to meet as much of your financial aid eligibility as possible. 

Meeting your educational cost involves a combination of family savings, current family income, student employment & financial aid, as eligible in the form of grants, scholarships, Federal Work Study and/or loans.

To learn more about your options at OSU, please visit the Financial Aid website.



OSU's admission requirements promote student success by assessing student preparedness and academic potential in the unique context of each student's personal experience. Admission assessment will consider all achievements, both academic & non-academic, to enroll students with a broad range of characteristics and perspectives.

Considerations include, but are not limited to: academic achievement, creativity, initiative, motivation, leadership, persistence, service to others, intellectual curiosity, exceptional personal or academic recognition, unusual talent or ability, substantial experience with other cultures & ability to overcome significant challenges.

The admissions process consists of a fair and comprehensive review of all applicants to determine potential success at OSU. It is crucial for applicants to carefully complete the application process by providing thorough information. Estimating the likelihood of admission is very difficult without considering the complete application file.
