Financial Aid at OHSU

The student financial aid program at OHSU is designed to assist students in meeting their educational costs. The Financial Aid Office thoroughly reviews your application for aid, and the best possible assistance is offered to help cover the costs of attending.

There are four general types of financial aid: scholarships, grants, loans and employment. The types of aid you will be awarded will depend on many things, including your program of study, financial need and available aid.

You must be formally admitted into a financial aid approved degree or certificate program at
OHSU before your application for financial aid will be reviewed. We therefore suggest that you
apply for financial aid before being officially admitted in order to meet certain financial aid deadlines. Once we are notified of your admission to the university we will begin to review your financial aid application. Waiting until you have been admitted to the university to apply for financial aid may adversely affect your financial aid award.

We will utilize several methods to contact you regarding your financial aid, including contacting you via e-mail. Therefore, please make sure to keep us updated regarding email and mailing address.

We look forward to working with you during your time at OHSU. Our goal is to make the financial aid process as smooth as possible for you. Please contact our office with any questions you may have.
