The Eastern Oregon University Financial Aid Office is committed to helping you obtain funding for your academic program(s). Whether you are a current or prospective student, there are a variety of financial aid programs available. Financial aid programs vary in eligibility criteria and award amounts. Most students and families need some financial assistance.
If you need help applying for financial aid, we are here to help. We are available Monday through Friday, 8 AM to 5 PM.
We encourage all students to apply for financial aid by filing a Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®). Our federal school code is 003193.
The FAFSA® form is available each year from October 1 through June 30 of the following academic year! Complete it at FAFSA.gov or click on the button below.
If you have questions about the FAFSA® process, you can get in-depth information about the FAFSA® form and what to expect after you submit your application on the studentaid.gov site.
If you are not eligible to complete the FAFSA®, you may be eligible to complete an Oregon Student Aid Application (ORSAA) to calculate an EFC and for the Oregon Opportunity Grant if you are an Oregon resident.
Your college financing offer availability notification will be sent to your EOU email address once packaged, and if you are a new freshman or transfer student, a paper copy of your offer will be mailed to the address on your FAFSA. You can view your offer anytime online through your student portal, Mountie Hub. Please refer to “Review your Award” in the Financial Aid Menu in the sidebar for more information and for our award guide video.
Please schedule a meeting through Navigate with a Financial Aid Counselor to discuss your college financing offer. We will be able to explain what has been offered to you, what kind of budget it is meant to cover, and how outside resources (such as military benefits or outside scholarships) may reduce your need to borrow or otherwise affect your need for different types of aid.
If, after consultation with your financial aid counselor, you determine that you want to use your federal loan eligibility to help pay for your school expenses, you must accept those loans in Mountie Hub, and complete entrance counseling and fill out and sign a master promissory note on studentaid.gov BEFORE your last day of attendance for the term. If you are taking courses other than 10-week courses (i.e. modules), your timeline may be different than the standard academic term dates.
Verification is a federal aid eligibility review process required by The U.S. Department of Education. For this process, EOU is required to verify that the information on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is accurate. We complete the verification process by comparing FAFSA data with federal tax documents* and other forms you provide to the EOU Financial Aid Office. Corrections to your FAFSA and college financing offer may be necessary if discrepancies are found. Without complete documentation, a student will not receive federal or state financial aid.
PLEASE, PUT YOUR STUDENT ID NUMBER ON ALL DOCUMENTS!
There are literally thousands of scholarships available to students who are on the hunt for the right match! Some require an application, an essay or other documentation – and a prompt deadline. Take advantage of your talent, drive and ambition and receive funds to help with your college costs. Some are awarded based on financial need. Others look at your academic achievements, school activities or planned major.
The Financial Aid Office supports recruitment and retention of qualified students by administering financial aid programs that increase access to higher education. The office supports access and choice by offering need and merit based federal, state, and institutional funding. Further, we support student success by providing timely award notifications, accurate information and professional, student friendly financial aid counseling.
