Loan Application Form

Loan requests are reviewed on a monthly basis by the Collections Management Team. After review, you will receive notification from the Registrar’s Office. Submission of a loan request does not guarantee its approval. 

OHS institutes a loan fee for borrowing institutions. Please see our Loan Fees page. 

Loan requests should be sent at least 4 months in advance to allow ample time for review and preparation of items. Please fill out and submit this form to initiate the process.
