The best way to determine eligibility for federal and state funding is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Submitting the FAFSA by March 15 will ensure consideration for all forms of financial aid at Ottawa University. Contact us for help completing the FAFSA.

When all application materials, including the FAFSA, are received, we will send your financial aid award letter. The award letter lists all financial aid you are eligible to receive, including scholarships, grants, work-study, and loans. You are automatically considered for Ottawa University scholarships upon admission.

The award letter is subject to change if your financial aid eligibility changes. Some financial aid awards require you to send us a few extra forms.

Follow the 3 steps to start your financial aid application.

Additional information is available on the Links page. Apply early to ensure that funds are available when needed.
