Annual tuition and fees for a student during the 2020-2021 academic year are provided in the table below. Students will have to pay a supplemental application fee of $60 ($70 for international students), and a one‐time program fee of $375. Students are also responsible for all expenses associated with travel and living arrangements during clinical affiliations. Tuition and fees are subject to change and different fees may apply to distance learning courses. Students who utilize student loans may also have origination fees associated with distribution of those loans and should contact their loan providers for details.
Additionally, as the program navigates changes related to COVID-19, there is additional information on the Safe and Healthy Buckeyes website regarding tuition and fees (located in the Current Students tab under Frequently Asked Questions section here: https://safeandhealthy.osu.edu/current-students).
Scholarships and Financial AidOhio State Fellowship
If you are interested in applying for an OSU fellowship, please check the box indicating your interest on your application form. You must request 3 letters of recommendation using the forms provided in the graduate school reference form. We recommend that you write a second letter of intent focused on why you should be awarded a fellowship (the first letter related entirely to becoming an occupational therapist). We recommend that you only apply for a fellowship if your undergraduate grade point average (GPA) is 3.6 or higher. Fellowships provide scholarships for the first year of your professional program.
You are encouraged to investigate the scholarships available through the American Occupational Therapy Foundation. More information can be found here.
The University's Office of Financial Aid handles all requests for scholarships, grants, and loans. Contact them directly at 614-292-0300 or check the Financial Aid page on Ohio State's web site: http://sfa.osu.edu/
