FAFSA

Ohio Institute of Allied Health is approved by US Department of Education to participate in Federal Student Aid programs. Students must fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) annually. The exact amount of aid provided depends on the student’s financial information. Federal Student Aid funding can be used for all diploma programs, including Ohio Institute of Allied Health Inc. Nursing Education Program Registered Nursing, Practical Nursing, Medical Assisting, Massage Therapy and Holistic Health Practitioner programs.


FAFSA Logo
 

The following financial aid programs are available to eligible OIAH students:

  • Federal Pell Grants - A Federal Pell Grant is similar to a need based scholarship and does NOT need to be repaid. Pell Grant is considered the foundation of federal financial aid to which aid from other federal and non-federal sources (such as WIA) might be added. The maximum Pell Grant award for the 2015-16 award year (July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016) is $5,775. The exact amount of a Pell Grant depends on financial information provided by a student on a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

  • Federal Direct Subsidized Stafford Loans - These are low-interest loans which require repayment. The interest is "subsidized" or paid by the federal government, while a student is in school plus a 6-month grace period. This subsidized loan is need-based and eligibility depends on the student's financial need, which is determined by information supplied on a FAFSA. You cannot be in default on a previous student loan, owe a repayment of other federal financial aid, or be enrolled in less than 6 credit hours of classes. The actual amount of a subsidized loan is affected by several factors, including number of hours enrolled and other financial aid funding.

    Note: Before requesting a loan, make sure you find out the true costs, interest rates, and how long it will take to repay the loan. Learn more on the Federal Student Aid website. Be smart, only borrower what you need!

  • Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loans - Most students eligible to participate in Federal Student Aid qualify for an unsubsidized loan. With an unsubsidized loan, interest is charged from the time loan funds are disbursed. Interest may be paid while in school and during a grace period, or may be added to the principal balance of the loan (capitalized).

  • Federal Direct PLUS Loans - If additional funds are needed beyond these base amounts, parents of dependent students may borrow through the PLUS loans (PLUS) program.
 

All federal student aid applicants must complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). The application is free and you will need to provide information on your income (or your parents) for the previous calendar year. You will need OIAH's school code, 035833, for your FAFSA.

Your financial aid information will be received by OIAH Financial Aid Office approximately 3 to 5 business days after you complete the FAFSA to begin processing. Students should file their FAFSA as soon as possible.
