Financial Aid

Upon acceptance to the Degree Partnership Program (DPP), students are eligible to enroll in courses at both partner schools, and financial aid eligibility is based on the sum of OSU credits plus qualifying credits at the partner institution.

Step #1: Apply for admission to a specific degree partnership program through the OSU Office of Admissions.

Step #2: Upon admission to a specific program, the OSU Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships will contact admitted students via e-mail with information on the financial aid process.

Step #3: Students will determine which partner institution will be the financial aid provider (home school), based on specific program criteria.

Home School Credit Hour Requirements:  Each community college and OSU have credit hour minimums required to process financial aid as the home institution.  Below is a list of the credit hour requirements.
