All Oakland University students with financial aid awards can view their awards on MySail. Students can also view the Financial Aid Shopping Sheet, which is an award letter designed by the U.S. Department of Education, intended to simplify estimated costs and financial aid awards in a format easy to compare to other institutions. If you have financial aid awards, you can access the Shopping Sheet on MySail. Veterans are encouraged to speak with a financial aid adviser and review the Financial Aid Policies, Terms, and Conditions Section 5 before dropping or withdrawing from a class.
The Department of Defense Tuition Assistance (TA) DECIDE website provides a comparison tool designed specifically to aid participants of DoD's Tuition Assistance (TA) program in making informed choices on schools and education programs. It provides high value, actionable information on educational costs and outcomes to compare educational institutions.
