Types of Aid


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.
