If you haven’t already, it's time to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at fafsa.gov. The FAFSA is a government form used to determine if you qualify for federal aid like grants and loans. Even if you don’t think you’ll qualify for or need federal aid, you’ll want to complete the FAFSA as soon as possible so we can craft a personalized financial aid offer for you. Be sure to use our school code when you complete the FAFSA: 003985.

Being nominated does not guarantee a candidate a scholarship. Nominees still need to qualify and complete the application process. Nominations can inform us of exceptional students not on our radar or enhance a candidate's scholarship file for full-tuition consideration.

SEE ORU FOR YOURSELF!

Our campus is almost as one-of-a-kind and extraordinary as our students. Just one look and you’ll fall in love with our futuristic, art-deco buildings, each of which symbolizes an element of our Christian faith. We invite you to experience this for yourself!

Please note: If you are selecting housing prior to June, your housing status may still show as incomplete when viewing your list of Registration Steps. This will automatically update later in the summer.

Once you have received your Financial Aid offer from us, you can  select or decline individual financial aid offers as well as apply for loans as needed through VISION.

To review and accept or decline financial aid offers, please follow the steps below:
  • Once logged in to VISION, select REGISTRATION QUICK LINKS > ACCEPT YOUR FINANCIAL AID AWARDS.
    Vision Instructions
  • Select an AID YEAR (e.g., 2021-2022 Aid Year).
  • Decide which offers to accept. Before clicking the ACCEPT AWARD OFFER tab, you'll need to click the TERMS AND CONDITIONS tab if that requirement is still incomplete. 
  • If you are selected for Verfication, please click here for more information. 

Please note: As you decide which offers to accept, more requirements may be generated on VISION for you to complete. For example, Direct Loan borrowers will need to complete master promissory notes and entrance counseling. Parents applying for Direct Parent PLUS Loans also need to complete a Direct Parent PLUS Loan request and master promissory note, which are separate documents. Financial Awareness counseling is required for students who accept additional unsubsidized loans resulting from a Direct Parent PLUS Loan denial.

Your first semester class schedule will be created for you based on the recommended courses listed on your degree plan sheet, your acceptance status and any ACT/SAT test scores, CLEP results, AP results, and any transfer credits currently on file.

Once your schedule is created, you'll be notified by email and can view it at vision.oru.edu.
