  • All amounts reflect annual awards in $. Appropriate annual award amount should be divided by two for semesters or three for quarters.
  • Eligible students continuously enrolled may receive an additional 1/2 or 1/3 of their respective award amount in their third semester or fourth quarter.
  • Students are limited to 10 semesters or 15 quarters of state, need-based grant aid (including combination of OCOG and OIG).

*Eligible foster youth at community colleges may qualify for OCOG using main campus maximum award amounts.

*The fixed Pell/EFC combo of $5,920 continues to exceed the average tuition and general charges at community colleges and therefore no OCOG awards will be available to students attending these institutions.  However, if a student in this sector attends an eligible institution year-round, a main campus term award may be distributed once Pell grants have been exhausted.

*The average tuition and general charges at university regional campuses slightly exceeds the fixed Pell/EFC combo of $5,920.  Therefore, a modified maximum OCOG award amount will be available to students attending these institutions.  However, if a student in this sector attends an eligible institution year-round, a main campus term award may be distributed once Pell grants have been exhausted.

**The OCOG award chart outlines maximum per student award amounts; however, each student will not automatically receive the maximum award amount due to the interaction(s) between the Pell/EFC combo and tuition and general charges as assessed to each individual student, which is typically the case with institutions such as Allegheny Wesleyan, Central State University, God’s Bible College, Grace College and Seminary, and Trinity School of Nursing.  It is the responsibility of each institution to perform a student specific calculation to ensure that each student’s Pell grant and EFC combo is being applied toward tuition and general charges before the student’s OCOG award amount is determined. 

***Amounts for Ohio residents attending eligible Pennsylvania institutions-- $600/$300 figures to non-veterans apply and $800/$400 figures to veterans.

* Students at community colleges and university regional campuses are not excluded from the Ohio College Opportunity Grant program. However, tuition level/costs are the determining factor in receipt of an OCOG award, regardless of technical eligibility.  Therefore students in this sector have a $0 OCOG award amount unless the student attends an eligible institution year-round.  In this case only, an award up to the public award amount may be distributed for the third term in the academic year once Pell grants have been exhausted for the academic year.    

* Eligible foster youth at community colleges may qualify for OCOG using main campus maximum award amounts.

** Tuition level/costs are the determining factors in receipt of an OCOG award and therefore students at these institutions have an adjusted OCOG award amount.  If the student attends year-round, they may be eligible for an award up to the public or private, non-profit award amount for their third term once Pell grants have been exhausted for the academic year. 

*** Amounts for Ohio residents attending eligible Pennsylvania institutions--$600/$300 figures apply to non-veterans and $800/$400 figures to veterans.

State funding for the Ohio College Opportunity Grant (OCOG) program for the 2009-2010 academic year is supplemented in part by federal funds provided under the following two grant programs: Leveraging Educational Assistance Partnership (LEAP) and College Access Challenge Grant (CACG). Ohio accounts for the federal portion of expenditures at the program level and not the school or student level.
