Who should complete the FAFSA?

New and returning students* who plan to attend College of the Ozarks during the 2022-2023 academic year, should complete the FAFSA as soon as possible.

*You are excluded if you are:

Where to complete the FAFSA?

Students and parents may complete the FAFSA form online at FAFSA.ed.gov and through the myStudentAid Mobile App.

If you need to create a login, visit the FSA ID website.


When do I need to complete my FAFSA?

The 2022-2023 FAFSA may be completed anytime after October 1, 2021 since the FAFSA uses 2020 income information.

Current Students: Please have your FAFSA completed before December 31, 2021.

Applicants for Admission: Please contact Admissions for priority deadlines.

Note: Failure to complete the FAFSA and submit additional documentation when requested will restrict your ability to have a class registration for the fall 2022 semester at College of the Ozarks, not allow you to participate in the Summer Work Education Program or be eligible for scholarships.
