Olean Business Institute knows that the cost of a college education is a very real concern to students. The majority of students attending OBI are eligible for grants and loans to help pay for their education. In fact, approximately 85% of our students receive financial assistance. In many cases, this assistance pays for the entire cost of attending OBI.
Since most forms of financial aid are awarded on the basis of need, students who feel they meet this requirement should file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at the time of application for admission. This form may be obtained from your high school guidance office or Olean Business Institute or may be filled out online.

Students attending OBI are eligible to apply for a wide range of financial aid programs. These include grants (which do not have to be repaid), low-interest student loans, scholarships, and government assistance programs.
