If you think college is beyond your financial means, think again!
Fill Out Your FAFSA!
Grants are the best type of financial aid for college because, unlike loans, you
don't have to repay them. Your eligibility for a grant is usually based on your
own and/or your family's income, assets, and other factors. Grade point averages
and test scores are not a consideration.
Applying for a grant, especially the Oregon Opportunity Grant is easy – just fill
out the FAFSA – the Free Application
for Federal Student Aid! It's the application for Federal Pell Grants and the Oregon Opportunity
Grant. Filing the FAFSA also helps determine your eligibility for Federal Stafford Loans. You need to fill out a Master Promissory Note to apply for a Federal Stafford Loan.
The FSA ID ― a username and password ― has replaced the Federal Student Aid PIN and must be used to log in
to certain U.S. Department of Education websites. Your FSA ID confirms your identity when you access your
financial aid information and electronically sign Federal Student Aid documents. Click here to learn more!
OSAC also administers grant programs for children of deceased
or disabled public safety officers, student-parents
, and foster youth. To apply for these special programs,
you must complete the FAFSA and a separate application. Follow the links for more
information about specific OSAC grant programs.
