Message From the Financial Aid Office

I want to remind students that this is not an overnight process. Once you have filled out your FAFSA application at, you will receive a confirmation from FAFSA that your application has been submitted and they will provide you with an estimate of what financial aid you might receive. Please remember that this is just an ESTMIATE. The financial aid office at OPSU will not receive your application for approximately 24-48 hours.

We will then start the process to determine the aid for which you qualify.

Expect this process to take up to 3 weeks if your paperwork is filled out correctly and no corrections are required.

We will correspond with you through the email you entered on your FAFSA or your student email. So please check your email periodically for communication from us. Students are selected at random by the federal government for verification of the income reported on their FAFSA application. When we receive your application we are notified of that request and at that time we will request you and your parents 2013 tax information from you. Depending on how quickly you return that information will also determine how long it takes to process your application.

Please call us anytime with questions but also be patient. It is not an overnight process.

Thank you.
