Ohio Christian University Payback Promise

Payback Promise is a Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) provided for new incoming students to the Undergraduate Campus Program in partnership with Ardeo Education Solutions. It acts as a safety net that helps students repay federal, private, and Parent PLUS loans if they make under $45,000 after graduating from Ohio Christian. The level of assistance received is determined on a sliding scale, with graduates who make under $20,000 eligible for full reimbursement.
