Based on your application for admission and the results of your FAFSA, The Financial Aid Office will calculate a financial aid package for you. You must request the processor to send the results of your FAFSA to College of the Ozarks. See HOW TO APPLY FOR AID (FAFSA Instructions). Most students will have received complete aid award letters by August. The award letter will list and explain the aid applied for the following school year. Once you receive your award letter, there is no further action required on your part. We will send you a new award letter if your federal or state grants change.
If you believe that you may qualify for certain scholarships, please review our Scholarship listings for eligibility and requirements. You may also contact our office to check your eligibility.
Notification for receiving a scholarship is done via Campus Web email or a letter to your campus dorm or work address. In some cases, particularly if you are a new student or attending part-time, we will send a letter to your home address.
Scholarships from outside organizations are typically applied directly to the student account. Scholarship checks may require endorsement before it can be applied to the account. This can be taken care of in the Cashier’s Office.
Scholarships from College of the Ozarks are applied to the student account with consideration to the requirements set by the scholarship. Scholarships may be placed on hold if your Financial Aid file is incomplete.
Loans proceeds from private alternative loan programs will be disbursed after the tenth day of class. In the event that an educational charge on the student account is due prior to registration for the next semester, seek the advice of the Financial Aid Office in order to proceed with registration. Proceeds may be placed on hold if your Financial Aid file is incomplete.
