ORSAA

The Oregon Student Aid Application (ORSAA) is the state's alternative to the FAFSA. It is only for students who cannot file a FAFSA.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), other undocumented students, and students without a social security number are not eligible for federal aid such as the Pell Grant and federally subsidized loans. However, they may be considered for state funding. To collect financial need information, Oregon has created the ORSAA. Completing this application allows a student to be eligible for the Oregon Opportunity Grant, the Oregon Promise Grant, and many of the scholarships operated by the Office of Student Access and Completion (OSAC).

Opens: October 1 -- Students are encouraged to complete their ORSAA as soon as possible and to contact OSAC if they run into any difficulties during the process.
