The Ohio State University at Marion will hold an online Financial Aid Information Presentation for the 2021-2022 award year. This FREE financial aid presentation is for parents and/or students of all income levels. The forms discussed are used at all two-year and four-year colleges and universities. Therefore, you are welcome to watch even if you and/or your child plans to attend a college other than Ohio State Marion or MTC.

Many two and four-year colleges and universities throughout the U.S. require or strongly encourage filling out the FAFSA. The information you provide on this form becomes the basis for determining eligibility for federal and state grants, work study programs, some scholarships, and subsidized & unsubsidized student loans.

College is not free. Students are charged tuition, fees, and room & board and must pay for books and supplies.  The total cost to attend college is referred to as the cost of education or the student budget.  While it is understood that paying for college can be a significant burden, it is the student’s responsibility to ensure that college costs are paid.

 Financial aid is help to pay for college!
