Financing your degree

Financial aid at Ohio State is based upon an academic year. EMBA students begin Spring semester, therefore your first academic year is Spring and Summer. Your second academic year is Autumn and Spring. Typically, EMBA students are eligible to apply for a total of $41,000 in unsubsidized loans. The remaining balance of EMBA fees can also be obtained through financial aid in the form of Graduate Plus Loans.

Students can apply for financial aid before they are an admitted student at Ohio State. You begin the process by completing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This information is then sent to Ohio State’s Student Financial Aid Office where they can determine your eligibility and provide you with an Award Letter which states the amount of loans you are eligible to receive. 

Complete information about student financial aid can be found at the Office of Student Financial Aid.
