Financial Aid Overview


OIC Training Academy offers financial aid for those that qualify.  It all starts with the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), which determines your eligibility for federal financial aid programs.  There are also several state and local grants for a number of our students.  If you are interested in OIC, let’s schedule a meeting and we can discover your personal financial aid package.

 Federal School Code: 025799


While the following types of aid can be used to pay for tuition at OIC, not everyone will be eligible for all.

Federal Pell Grant

The Pell Grant is based on financial need.  Financial need is determined by the FAFSA.  Students may not receive Federal Pell Grant funds from more than one school at a time.   If you have already received the equivalent of or exceeded the lifetime eligibility limit, you will no longer be able to receive Pell Grant funds.  You can review your Pell Grant history on NSLDS.
