Project Summary: 

The goal of this project is to set up structures to ensure we have payment plans flexible enough for all student types (part-time, full-time, aid recipients, self-pay, etc.), and mechanisms through which students and their families can gain financial literacy around college affordability. With these tools, we will be able to eliminate holds on transcripts for students who wish to transfer away from OSU, and we will support students in making prudent decisions financially by not allowing them to accumulate debt.
