Student Debt Counseling

Welcome to the Student Debt Counseling and Financial Management Program at OHSU. Our program is designed to be an educational and counseling resource for the students of OHSU to help our students better understand the fiscal challenges while participating in an OHSU field of study.  

Almost every student who attends OHSU does so with the help of financial assistance of some kind. Generally students fund their degree by borrowing from the Federal Government or from a private financial institution such as a bank. Regardless of how a student chooses to fund their time at OHSU, they are doing so by taking on a future financial responsibility.   Please review the Student Financial Aid Planning Policy

By helping to mentor and educate students while they are attending OHSU, the Student Debt Management Program strives to help students create their own educational debt management plan so that they have a better understanding of their obligations and options after graduation.
