Financial Aid Philosophy

Ohio Medical Career Center strongly believes that the availability of a high-quality education should depend on a student's academic ability, determination, and discipline, not their financial status. OMCC has been partnering with various financial aid programs and finding financial options to respond to a wide range of economic circumstances.

OMCC does not use financial need as a consideration in assessing a student's eligibility for admission. The admission and financial aid processes are separate and distinct. No decisions regarding financial aid are made until the student is accepted.

The Financial Aid Office manages the financial aid process and serves as the liaison between students and OMCC. OMCC safeguards the confidentiality of all financial aid information supplied by applicants and does not publicly identify recipients of financial aid.

We understand that even with assistance, paying for school is not easy. The various programs outlined on this page, however, can make paying for school manageable. OMCC does not guarantee that students will qualify for financial aid, but we encourage all students to apply early and determine if they're eligibility for assistance.

Veteran Education Benefits (G.I. Bill®)

The G.I. Bill® is designed to provide college or vocational education for eligible service members and veterans.
