You can also contact our office to schedule an in-person appointment or schedule a virtual appointment with your assigned financial aid advisor. Required financial aid documents can be submitted using our Secure Upload Portal (see our Troubleshooting Guide for assistance) or faxed to 740.593.4140. Documents can also be dropped off in our office or placed in the drop box located inside the south entrance doors on the ground floor of Chubb Hall (Court Street side of the building). Please make sure your name and student PID number are listed on all documents. You are encouraged to frequently visit your My OHIO Student Center to review your To Do List to see if any items are needed to complete the processing of your financial aid.

2024-25 FAFSA Updates

  •  

    FAFSA Extension


    Because of the delayed launch of the 2024-25 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and issues with submission, OHIO has extended its first-priority FAFSA filing date to at least March 1. The FAFSA is now available at studentaid.gov, and we encourage students and families to complete it soon for best consideration for aid.

  •  

    FAFSA Completion Help


    The Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships offers individualized appointments to assist students and their families in completing the 2024-25 FAFSA.  Choose a virtual appointment or meet with a financial aid advisor in person at Chubb Hall on the Athens campus.
