Renewing Aid

OSU Campus

You must apply for financial aid every year by submitting a FAFSA application. Applications must be received before February 28th at the central processor to be considered for priority funding. You may apply for aid online after Jan. 1 for the following academic year. Below are a few of the issues that may affect you as a continuing OSU student and financial aid recipient. Be sure to keep on top of managing your award!


Yearly Loan Limits

If you have been awarded a Ford loan, you are eligible for additional Ford loan funding as you progress through school. Depending on your credits and class standing, you will be able to receive different loan amounts. Below are the credit requirements and loan amounts:

Class Standing


Loan Limit (Dependent)

Loan Limit (Independent)


0 - 44




45 - 89




90 - up




If you change class standing in either fall or winter term, you may request that your loans be increased for the current academic year. Download and complete the Loan Revision Form and return it to the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships for review.
