Financial Aid Philosophy
Ohio Medical Career Center strongly believes that the availability of a high-quality education should depend on a student's academic ability, determination, and discipline, not their financial status. OMCC has been partnering with various financial aid programs and finding financial options to respond to a wide range of economic circumstances.
OMCC does not use financial need as a consideration in assessing a student's eligibility for admission. The admission and financial aid processes are separate and distinct. No decisions regarding financial aid are made until the student is accepted.
The Admission Office manages the financial aid process and serves as the liaison between students and OMCC. OMCC safeguards the confidentiality of all financial aid information supplied by applicants and does not publicly identify recipients of financial aid.
We understand that even with assistance, paying for college is not easy. The various programs outlined on this page, however, can make paying for school manageable.
Workforce Investment Act (WIA)
The Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA) is designed to provide quality employment and training services to help eligible adults find and qualify for meaningful employment.
Ohio Medical Career Center is an approved training provider for Ohio Workforce Investment Act funds. WIA funding can be used for Registered Nursing (RN), Practical Nursing (LPN), Nursing Assistant (CNA/STNA), Phlebotomy, and Billing & Coding training programs.

Veteran Education Benefits (G.I. Bill)
The G.I. Bill is designed to provide college or vocational education for eligible service members and veterans. In 2008, Congress passed the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act which greatly expanded the educational benefits for military veterans who have served since September 11, 2001.
The following benefit programs are administered by the Veteran's Administration:
- Montgomery GI Bill - Active Duty (MGIB)
- Montgomery GI Bill - Selected Reserves (MGIB-SR)
- Post-9/11 Educational Assistance Program (Post-9/11 GI Bill)
- Veterans Educational Assistance Program (VEAP)
- Survivors & Dependents Educational Assistance Program (DEA)
Ohio Medical Career Center accepts veteran education benefits. GI Bill funding can be used for Registered Nursing (RN), Practical Nursing (LPN), Phlebotomy, and Billing & Coding training programs.
If you are eligible to receive assistance, please identify your chapter program (ie. Chapter 30, Chapter 33, etc) and apply online via Veteran Administration's VONAPP interface. Bring a printed copy of completed application form as well as your Certificate of Eligibility (CoE) to the Admission Office to begin the enrollment process.
To see which benefits you qualify for, please contact VA Adminstrative Office at 1-888-GIBILL1 (1-888-442-4551). Wait time can be long, try pressing #1 then number 0 to decrease respond time.
For applicants with experience in the armed forces of the United States, or in the National Guard or in a reserve component, OMCC will review the individual's military education and skills training, determine whether any of the military education or skills training is substantially equivalent to the curriculum, and award credit to the individual for any substantially equivalent military education or skills training in accordance with Ohio Revised Code 4723-5-12.
Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation (BVR)
The Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation (BVR) provides grant programs for undergraduate students with disabilities. The Rehabilitation Services Commission in the student's state of residence determines a student's eligibility. Students with disabilities who are interested in applying should contact their local BVR office to begin the process.
Ohio Medical Career Center is an approved training provider for BVR benefits. BVR funding can be used for Nursing Assistant (CNA/STNA), Phlebotomy, and Billing & Coding training programs.
