A brief description of notable policies or programs to make the institution accessible and affordable to low-income students:

The OHIO Guarantee sets the standard among Ohio’s public institutions of higher education by taking the guesswork out of budgeting for college. The OHIO Guarantee is a cohort based, level-rate tuition, housing, dining, and fee model that assures students and their families a set of comprehensive rates for the pursuit of an undergraduate degree at Ohio University. Tuition, housing, dining, and fee rates established at enrollment remain unchanged for 12 consecutive semesters. The OHIO Guarantee provides predictability, transparency and stability of costs. Low-income Ohio University students who file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) may be eligible for need-based aid, including grants, subsidized loans and/or federal work study. Scholarships are also available for low-income/economically disadvantaged students (see below).
