  • Rendering female models and celebrities on large-scale canvases and with quick, expressive brushstrokes, painter Katherine Bernhardt examines representations of beauty in mainstream media and fashion photography. She paints her subjects with severe, exaggerated features and emaciated limbs that sometimes morph into abstraction, recalling the works of Pablo Picasso. “Some people ask if I hate the models I paint,” she says. “I say no, I don't hate them.

  • A dynamic portrait of the life of computer prodigy Aaron Swartz who championed free speech and data sharing, this must-see documentary premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah and was the opening night film at the 2014 Hot Docs International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada. 

    We're excited the film’s director Brian Knappenberger will be our special guest speaker for the Q & A moderated by Movies that Matter series producers Judy Arthur and Perri Chasin after the screening.

Current Students

The earliest that a student can re-apply for the following year is Decemer. Students applying for aid for the current year must complete these steps immediately.

 

 

Step 1:

Students renew their financial aid by filling out the FAFSA.  Students who only want to renew Otis Scholarship and Grants or apply for Otis Work-Study can fill out the Otis Financial Aid Renewal Application.

Step 2:

If you and/or your parent cannot find or remember your Department of Education pin, apply for a duplicate pin by visiting www.pin.ed.gov.  A parent pin is required for dependent students.

Step 3:

A renewal Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) can be completed by visiting www.fafsa.gov. The federal school code is 001251. The FAFSA is free from the Department of Education. (Be aware that there are websites that charge for the FAFSA.)

Step 4:

The Department of Education will email a notification about the Student Aid Report (SAR).  Read the comments section carefully for any additional documentation you may need to turn in to the Financial Aid Office.

The Financial Aid Office will also email you if you are selected for a process called Verification or if any other documentation is needed.  Depending on the documentation needed, your award may be delayed if you do not turn in the necessary documents.

Students can also check www.otis.edu/selfservice for requirements.

Step 5:

After the student's eligibility has been determined, he/she will receive an email informing him/her to accept or decline aid in Self Service.  Students wanting to take out loans can visit the Otis Loan webpage for instructions. 

Parents who are approved for the PLUS loan by the Department of Education can take out funds to cover the Cost of Attendance minus other aid.

Students needing to take out the Private Loans would also need to complete the application process.  Further instructions are on http://www.otis.edu/financial-aid-office/private-loans.

Step 6:

Financial Aid funds will be credited to the student's account after school begins. Funds in excess of tuition and fees will be refunded to the student (or the parent, in the case of a PLUS Loan).  Students are highly encouraged to check their online account through Self Service after the 3rd week of school for any missing documents and aid that have not paid.
