ORSAA- Oregon Student Aid Application

Oregon Student Aid Application (ORSAA) is the State of Oregon's alternative to the FAFSA. The ORSAA is used for the state of Oregon's financial aid.

Refer to the ORSAA Quick Tips to learn more about how to complete the application.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), other undocumented students, and students without a social security number are not eligible for federal aid (Pell Grant, federal subsidized loans). However, they may be considered for some state funding. To collect financial need information, Oregon has created the ORSAA. This should not be used by individuals who can complete a FAFSA.

For DACA and other Undocumented Students

OSAC scholarships offered by Oregon Community Foundation (OCF) and The Ford Family Foundation (TFFF) are open to DACA students. Scholarships that require financial need will use the FAFSA or ORSAA to determine applicant’s financial need eligibility. Scholarships that require U.S. Citizenship will have that requirement listed in the descriptor and DACA or undocumented students are not eligible for those scholarships.

TFFF will require DACA or undocumented students meet the tuition equity qualifications from Oregon’s HB2787. For detailed information on those requirements contact TFFF: fordscholarships@tfff.org.

All grants offered by the state of Oregon are available to qualifying DACA or other undocumented students, such as: Oregon Opportunity Grant and Oregon Promise Grant.
