How do I accept/reduce/decline my Financial Aid?

To accept/decline/partially accept your financial aid awards, you must log-on to vision.oru.edu, click on Student Services and Financial Aid, Financial Aid, My Award Information, then Display/Accept Awards by Aid Year, and select the current year. Please note that you will need to read and accept the financial aid Terms and Conditions before you are given access to accept or decline your awards.

I can see my award letter on the summary page but Vision won’t let me accept/decline any awards. Is there an error?

In order to access the decision tab for financial aid awards, students must read and agree to the “Award Terms and Conditions” listed on a separate tab. Once the conditions are accepted, the decision tab becomes available.

Do I have to accept my entire financial aid award?

Print Friendly

You are not required by ORU to accept the full amount of any loan assistance on your award letter. However, if you decline a partial or full amount of any loan you will need to have a way to pay the potential resulting balance on your student account. The decision-box on your financial aid award letter in Vision allows you to accept full awards or to specify a lesser amount you wish to accept.

I accidentally accepted an award in Vision that I wished to decline. What should I do?

Yes, we can reset your awards to “offered” so you can decline them if you wish. Email your request to orufinaid@oru.edu, allowing up to 2 business days following your request for Vision to update.

E-mail your request to have the award re-offered to ORU Financial Aid. Any loanexcept Perkins loan may be reinstated within 2 business days of request. The Perkins loan is a “first-apply, first awarded fund” so declined awards are reassigned to other students. Students who request Perkins reinstatement will be placed on a waiting list and awarded as funds become available throughout the summer.
