It's no secret that a college education can be a big investment. But you may be surprised that OWU provides an average of more than $45,000 in scholarships and aid per student. And we enrich your classroom learning with personal attention and real-world experiences that employers crave.

OWU is your partner for success in college and beyond

99% of OWU students received merit-based and/or need-based financial aid. 

We are able to award more than $15 million a year in financial aid, because our alumni give back so new generations of students can benefit from the same life-changing OWU education they enjoyed.

OWU offers merit scholarships ranging from $15,000 to full-tuition. Explore our merit scholarship program for more details about the award(s) for which you may qualify.

Our Admission and Financial Aid staff will work with you personally to consider every form of aid for which you may be eligible. Many families have questions about the FAFSA - The Free Application for Federal Student Aid. This is a form completed by families of high school seniors living in the U.S. (and current U.S.) students to determine their eligibility for federal financial aid to help afford college tuition. 

If you're applying to OWU as a new U.S. student, remember to file the FAFSA by May 31. (This is a suggested filing date and NOT a deadline.) Filing by this date will also qualify you for the $1,000 FAFSA filer award. 

I know what the FAFSA is, I'm ready to complete the form. (Include OWU's Title IV Code 003109)
I would like to know more about the FAFSA before I start.

Additionally, you may use our Net Price Calculator (NPC) to estimate your out-­of-­pocket cost for an Ohio Wesleyan education over four years. This tool is intended for domestic first-time, first-year, or transfer students. Keep in mind, this is purely an estimate and is only as reliable as the data you enter.
