In order to apply on-line, you must use your OHIO log-in information, supplied to you by Ohio University. Applications are accepted online February 1 through May 1, 2015.

To be assured of your application being processed accurately and you're being enrolled in the appropriate learning community, you must return the housing deposit and contract (or housing exemption form) by May 1, 2015.

Please, only students should complete the application process.­­ In the past, some parents completed the learning community application instead of the students. ­This caused confusion that would have been avoided if the student had applied.

Another step for being a student at Ohio University is to respond to the Bobcat Student Orientation invitation in April. Please be sure to do so before June. Contact­ BSO­ at 740-593-1951 with any questions.

An information session and registration for the general LC programs will take place during Bobcat Student Orientation. ­Registration options for the college-based communities will be contingent on acceptance into the specific academic programs.

If you have a specific academic need, such as PSEOP credit(s), AP credit(s), transfer credit(s), or are registered with Institutional Equity and have concerns you would like us to meet, feel free to email the Director of Learning Communities at learning.communities@ohio.edu.
