OSEA Direct Enrollment Plan
OSEA is an independent, non-degree school. You must apply and submit all materials and payments directly to OSEA. If you intend to make a payment to OSEA via a third party (such as a university or foundation in the form of a grant, scholarship, or other funding award) you need to verify in advance with their staff that they can make the payment directly to OSEA. Different funding agencies have different requirements. Some require that payment be made directly to the student and other funding agencies require payment be made only to the educational providor, which would be OSEA in this case. Double check these stipulations with your scholarship/grant source to ensure that your receipt of funding allows you to make payments in accordance with the OSEA schedule of fees and payments.
