TRANSFER STUDENT CHECKLIST...
1. Have you sent all of your transcripts? Check the list of courses at the end of the DARS (Degree Audit Report) provided. Are all of your courses listed?
2. Call to make a pre-orientation advising appointment, 740-593-1935, with the Transfer Student Coordinator, Doug Orr (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please identify yourself as a new transfer student and which quarter you are transferring.
3. All University College transfer students with fewer than 30 credit hours earned must enroll in a learning community. You'll be given more information at orientation.
4. Students with fewer than six quarters or four semesters in the residence halls after high school graduation are required to live on campus in university housing. Exceptions to this rule do exist for commuter or older students. If you have not completed a housing contract, do it soon, http://www.ohio.edu/housing/index.cfm.
5. If you do not have a recent (5 years) ACT or SAT score and have not taken a transferable algebra course (Math 1300, Pre-Calculus) or higher, then you are required to take the on-line math placement test, visit http://www.ohio.edu/orientation/mathPlacement2.cfm for more information.
6. Register for Bobcat Student Orientation even if you make a pre-orientation advising appointment.
