We are a smarter way to learn. We have been from day one. At Otterbein, it's not just what our students learn, it's how they learn. Every student will have advisors and mentors to help design professional goals. Every student will graduate with at least one immersive experience. Every student will be ready to map their future success with a custom career plan.

We know how hard the financial aid process can be for families. The Offices of Admission and Financial Aid have joined together to create virtual financial aid sessions. These sessions are designed for parents and guardians to share tips and advice around our merit and need based opportunities along with details on completing the FAFSA, and important dates and deadlines. Please consider sharing these opportunities with your parents.
