Financial Aid

Your education is one of the most important investments you will make in your lifetime. Adequate preparation for pursuing your studies includes careful financial planning. The key is early planning and research on the variety of options available from both the College of Nursing and outside sources.

In addition to personal and family savings, Ohio State College of Nursing students meet the cost of their education through a combination of scholarships from the university, the College of Nursing, and external organizations; grant assistance; loans from the federal government and private lenders; and employment.
