Financial Aid

At Ohio State Career Training Center (OSCTC), we firmly believe that a student's academic ability, determination, and discipline should be the basis for accessing a high-quality education, regardless of their financial status. Therefore, we have partnered with several financial aid programs and options to cater to a wide range of economic circumstances.

We evaluate a student's eligibility for admission solely based on their academic credentials, without taking financial need into account. The admission and financial aid processes are separate and independent of each other. We do not make any financial aid decisions until a student has been accepted into our program.

Our Financial Aid Office manages the entire financial aid process and acts as the link between students and our institution. We value the confidentiality of all financial aid information provided by applicants and do not disclose the identities of recipients of financial aid.

We acknowledge that paying for education can be challenging even with assistance. Nevertheless, the various programs described on our website can help make the cost of education more manageable. While we cannot guarantee that every student will qualify for financial aid, we strongly advise all students to apply early to determine their eligibility for assistance.
