This state funded grant program is for undergraduate, degree-seeking Ohio residents with an expected family contribution (EFC, as determined by the FAFSA) of $2,190 or less and a maximum household income of $96,000. Students are limited to ten full-time semesters of eligibility, but the award amount is prorated based on enrollment. OCOG is tuition/general fees specific, and any student receiving 100% tuition/general fees in the form of a waiver or institutional, athletic, third party, federal or state aid is not eligible for OCOG.
Award amounts are published annually by the Ohio Department of Education, once the state budget has been finalized for that academic year.
