Financial Aid

Adequate financing for the DVM program is essential. Applicants seeking financial assistance should file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The applicant should request that reports be sent to OSU in order to guarantee consideration for financial aid if admitted. WICHE applicants also need to have reports sent to OSU to be considered for financial aid.

Further information on available financial assistance can be obtained from OSU Financial Aid and Scholarships Office.

*An average amount is built in for loan recipients to cover Federal Ford Direct Loan fees, this amount may vary.

Thanks to generous gifts from donors and organizations, the College gives over $300,000 in scholarships annually to students in the DVM program who meet the criteria established for each of the awards. Students participate in the scholarship process by completing a general application form which is provided by the Dean's Office in January and has a return date of February. The College's Scholarship and Awards Committee reviews the applications and makes the awards. (Scholarships are then applied to students' OSU accounts for their tuition expenses the next academic year.) Merit and interest awards are announced at the Annual Awards Ceremony in May. Academic Excellence, Leadership and Community Outreach awards are given to each class. All students qualify for Research Excellence awards. List of scholarships.
