Financial Aid to Fund Your Education
You’re not alone if you need support. Ninety percent of OLLU students receive financial aid to ease their transition back to school.
Our financial aid counselors will work directly with you to help you determine your best course of action.
Your first step is to apply for the Free Application for Federal Aid (FAFSA). Apply as early as possible to receive priority awarding and remember to re-apply every year.
Use OLLU’s federal school code in your application: 003598.
Employer Tuition Reimbursement
Almost 70% of employers nationwide offer tuition assistance incentives.1
Ask your human resources department if your company provides this benefit.
To honor your service, military students receive a 10% tuition credit from OLLU. We’re also a Yellow Ribbon School and offer potential tuition reimbursement through the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill.
You may also take advantage of external scholarships, loans and OLLU’s payment plans. If you have any financial aid questions, request more information anytime or call 855-275-1082.
Top 4 Reasons for Your Employer To Support You
If your company doesn’t have a formal tuition reimbursement plan, consider talking to them about how financially contributing to your education is a wise investment. Here are some benefits to share:
Investing in you costs your company much less than recruiting, hiring and training someone new who already has a more advanced degree. In addition, the IRS reimburses companies up to $5,250 per employee per year for educational expenses.
At OLLU, we’ve intentionally built our programs to fit the lives of working professionals, so you won’t have to quit your job or even cut back your hours. Our asynchronous online courses allow you to learn whenever and wherever you please.
3. ADDED VALUE
As you learn online with OLLU, you’ll bring your new skills and up-to-the-minute insights to work with you right away, not just when you graduate. Your education immediately enhances your value as an employee and team member.
4. A WELL-EDUCATED WORKFORCE
Many organizations rely on a percentage of their employees holding advanced degrees. By supporting your education, your employer can improve their standing in certification and accreditation programs while touting their well-educated workforce.
