How does the OCU Partnership with mylrap.org work?
Ohio Christian University has partnered with the nation's premier provider of loan repayment assistance programs, Ardeo Education Solutions, to make the Payback Promise program available to OCU students. There is an online portal where you will create your Payback Promise / Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) account and manage the benefits that are available to you after graduation. AGS and Campus students need to use different links corresponding to their program.
We are happy to provide Payback Promise to you and assist you in your journey to manage all financial aspects of your education with us.
Is the payback promise available for all students?
Students who have enrolled as freshmen in our Undergraduate Campus Program meet all the criteria for our Payback Promise. Transfer students are also eligible if they will attend at least 2 years full-time at OCU before graduation. Some students in our Adult Online Program are also eligible. However, international students or students in our Online Plus Program may not be eligible. Please speak with your Admissions Counselor if you have questions about eligibility.
Christian: it's in our name because it's our aim
Principally in everything, including professional education, we seek to honor Jesus Christ. Our holistic education encourages the development of hardworking and dependable character in you as well as a personal demeanor of passion, compassion, and congeniality. These are necessary traits of success in all walks of life. The spiritual things we uphold are not antithetical to a physical workplace; they are universally transcendent for the betterment of all endeavors, both professionally and spiritually. Secular institutions do not share our deep conviction for moral excellence because they honor relative truth and reinvent the foundations of moral absolutes. It is by and through the truth, grace, love, and peace of Jesus Christ that the foundations of all successful enterprises arise. "For everything comes from Him and exists by His power and is intended for His glory. All glory to Him forever! Amen." (Romans 11:36, NLT). Have faith and honor Jesus Christ with us as we partner with you in realizing your dream of a bachelor's or master's degree.
So much more than "just" a Bible college
Ohio Christian is more than a university, and we're also not "just a Bible college." We seek to honor (not censor) the voice of scripture as it speaks to Business, Psychology, Criminal Justice, Education, Information Technology, and Leadership as well as Theology, Pastoral, and Religious studies. Grow professionally as well as spiritually and achieve more than you thought possible. At Ohio Christian University, find spiritual enrichment and earn a degree at the same time, not just because you can, but because you want more and won't settle for less.
Our accredited curriculum is:
- Designed to earn a degree for a great value
- Develops working students to thrive in their profession and chosen field of study
- Enriched with biblical themes and perspectives
