If I have questions, whom should I call?

  • Bobcat Student Orientation is open between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Please call 740.593.1951 or email questions to: orientation@ohio.edu.

What should I do if I have taken AP exams?

  • Have your AP scores sent directly to Ohio University. The Office of Admissions only accepts scores submitted by the CollegeBoard and any any credit you are eligible for will be loaded to your university record before Orientation. We recommend that you bring a copy of your AP scores to Athens when you come for Orientation in the unlikely event the credit is not yet reflected on your Ohio University record.

What should I do if I've taken courses at another university?

  • Have an official transcript sent directly to the Office of Admissions, Chubb Hall 120, Athens, OH 45701 as soon as possible. Transcripts received after June 15 may not be fully evaluated before summer Orientation since, in many instances, course content must be reviewed by appropriate college offices before the course appears on your final Ohio University record. We would also suggest that you bring an unofficial copy of your most current transcript with you to Orientation to be used as a discussion point in the event that your transcript has not been fully processed. If you would like to check if your transcript has been received, please call the Office of Admissions at 740.593.4100.
