Financial Aid

We make sure college is affordable

All undergraduate students are eligible to receive tuition assistance. 100% of students receive financial aid. No student pays more than $7,000 out of pocket to attend OCU (and that doesn’t include additional aid). To get started, simply file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at This form determines eligibility for grants, loans, work-study, and OCU institutional aid. Don’t miss out. File by April 15th to qualify for state aid in Indiana.


The Good Neighbor Scholarship

The Good Neighbor scholarship is the chance to save BIG on tuition for first-time OCU students living within 60 miles of campus and plan to commute.

21st Century Scholarship

The 21st Century scholarship covers full tuition if you’re enrolled in the Indiana 21st Century Scholar program and have met all state requirements.

Diversity in Education Scholarship

The Diversity in Education scholarship is a $500 award that is exclusively for full-time, on-campus freshman and transfer students. Current OCU students are not eligible to apply.

How much will you save?
