General Information

ACADEMIC STATUS, STUDENT
A student is eligible to return unless otherwise notified. Academically dismissed undergraduate students may petition for reinstatement under certain conditions. Graduate students with academic deficiencies may be denied permission to continue enrollment in certain programs. If this happens, a student must apply and be admitted to a different degree or nondegree graduate program before continued graduate enrollment is allowed.

Disciplinary expulsion, which can apply both to graduate and undergraduate students, prohibits the student from ever attending Ohio University and from being present, without permission, on any campus of Ohio University.

Students are informed of academic drop actions by their academic deans and of nonacademic suspensions by the Office of University Judiciaries. These offices place holds on students' academic records. It is not possible for a student to register while such holds exist. Failure to receive notification by mail does not affect a student's status.

ADDRESS, CHANGE OF
It is the student's responsibility to maintain a current address on file with Ohio University. Students can easily update their addresses by accessing the Office of the University Registrar Web site, www.ohio.edu/registrar, and selecting Update MyAddress under Online Services.

In addition, a student may update his/her address via e-mail by sending his/her full name, the last four digits of his/her Person Identification Number (PID) (found on the student ID), and the new address to address@ohio.edu. Address updates may also be reported to Registrar Services, first floor lobby, Chubb Hall.

It is very important to keep your local and permanent addresses and telephone numbers (including cell phone) current in order for the University to communicate important information to you.

Note: International students in F-1 or J-1 status are required to use the online address service to update their addresses with Ohio University to meet immigration reporting requirements.

ADMISSIONS
Learning takes place year round at Ohio University, and the campus is bustling in the summer, although at a more relaxed pace. The summer quarter Schedule of Classes lists many opportunities for summer study, both formal and informal; on campus and off campus; in class and online.

Because Ohio University has an open admissions policy during the summer quarter, classes traditionally include a rich blend of visiting students from other campuses, interested members of the community, and our own Ohio University students. Together they participate in undergraduate and graduate courses taught by Ohio University’s internationally known faculty, study in specialized summer workshops and institutes led by experts in their fields, and take credit and noncredit courses for professional development or personal interest. The summer quarter Schedule of Classes is your guide to a sensational summer in southeastern Ohio. Additional summer information can be found at www.ohiou.edu/summer.


Students Pursuing a Degree at Another College or University
Admission to Ohio University as a regular degree-seeking student is not required for summer study. Enrollment in summer quarter is open to all students without regard to age, sex, race, religion, color, creed, disability, national or ethnic origin, or marital status. You may study at Ohio University during summer quarter as a nondegree, noncontinuing, or visiting student. To do so, fill out Form A, Nondegree Undergraduate Application and Re-enrollment Form, as well as Form C, Nondegree Registration Form.

Credit generally can be transferred to other institutions. The accepting institution, however, establishes the policy in this matter. You are, therefore, urged to make arrangements in advance so you will know whether the credit you earn will transfer.

Ohio University operates on the quarter system. The course credit value in quarter hours is indicated after the course number and title in the course offerings. The following table shows the relative value of quarter and semester hours:
1.5 quarter hours = 1 semester hour
3.0 quarter hours = 2 semester hours
4.5 quarter hours = 3 semester hours
6.0 quarter hours = 4 semester hours
7.5 quarter hours = 5 semester hours
New and Transfer Degree-Seeking Students
If you are seeking a degree and are enrolling this summer as a new or transfer student, do not use the application form in the summer quarter Schedule of Classes. Contact Undergraduate Admissions, first floor, Chubb Hall, (740) 593-4100, for admission information. New and transfer students planning to continue enrollment for fall quarter must meet University application deadlines.


Re-Enrolling Students
See General Information: Re-enrolling Students.

New Student Orientation
New degree-seeking students enrolling during the summer quarter must attend orientation. Orientation for students attending either summer session will be held on Friday, June 19, 2009, at 8:00 a.m. For more information contact Student Orientation, (740) 593-1951.

Graduate Students
Registration for any graduate course offered during the summer quarter requires official admission to the University with degree or nondegree status. Postbaccalaureate and re-enrolling graduate students should complete Form B, Postbaccalaureate Nondegree Application and/or Graduate Re-enrollment Form, as well as Form C, Nondegree Registration Form.

The conditions of postbaccalaureate admission are the same as for nondegree graduate status (during the summer quarter only): (a) admission status terminates after completion of 18 graduate hours, (b) admission to nondegree status does not constitute admission to a graduate degree program, (c) credit earned cannot normally be applied toward a graduate degree at Ohio University. Some graduate courses, such as those in the MBA program, are not open to students admitted to postbaccalaureate status. If in doubt about the acceptability of postbaccalaureate status for a specific course, check with the department/school offering the course.


Enrollment as a new degree-seeking graduate student requires official admission to the University. To receive the necessary application material and information, contact the Graduate College, McKee House, (740) 593-2800.

AUDITING A CLASS
You may register to audit classes, which allows you to preview or review courses without receiving a grade or credit hours, but the choice to audit must be made and identified at the time of registration. Changes from audit to credit or from credit to audit must be made during the first 15 calendar days of the quarter (first eight days of summer subterm).

To request a class be changed from credit to audit or audit to credit between the eighth and 15th calendar days of the quarter you must visit Registrar Services, first floor lobby, Chubb Hall, or your regional campus student services office. Audited classes count in calculating tuition, but they do not carry credit or count toward financial aid eligibility. Audited courses will appear on your official transcript but will not affect your GPA or hours earned.

Your instructor may set up specific requirements for auditing the class, and if you do not meet the requirements, you may be removed from the class at your instructor's discretion with a grade of WP or WF. Be sure to discuss your auditing status with your instructor at the first class meeting.

Do not confuse auditing a class with taking a class under the pass/fail option.

BOOKS, ONLINE PURCHASING
As an alternative to purchasing your books at local bookstores, you may purchase books online by accessing the Office of the University Registrar Web site, www.ohio.edu/registrar, and selecting Textbooks under Resources.

CANCELATION OF REGISTRATION/WITHDRAWAL FROM THE UNIVERSITY
Cancellation of registration is defined as dropping all classes before the first day of classes. You may do this by using Web Registration.

Withdrawal from the University is defined as dropping all classes on or after the first day of classes. This means all regular Ohio University classes for which you are registered, whether on one campus or multiple campuses. This may NOT be done by using Web Registration. You must go to the student services office in your college or regional campus student services office to initiate the withdrawal process. Graduate students must contact the Graduate College. Withdrawal is not permitted on or after the last day of classes (see Summer Quarter 2008-09 Calendar).

Note: Canceling your class registration does not cancel your housing. You are required to make an appointment with a Residence Life staff member in your building prior to your scheduled check out date and time to properly check out of your room, sign your Room Condition Report (RCR), and return all keys. If you have canceled your class registration you are no longer eligible to reside on campus and must move out completely within 48 hours.

International students (F-1 or J-1 status) must contact the Office of International Student and Faculty Services (ISFS), (740) 593-4330, prior to withdrawing from the University. Failure to do so may lead to serious immigration problems.

CLASS ATTENDANCE (Two-Hour Rule)
A student who misses the first two contact hours of a class for which he/she is registered may be denied permission to remain in the class. A student who has missed the first two contact hours should verify his/her status in the class with the instructor. The instructor has the option of retaining the student. A student NOT retained because of missing the first two contact hours must adjust his/her schedule by dropping the class. Failure to do so can result in an F, FN (failure, never attended), or FS (failure, stopped attending) grade.

Note: A student not retained on the instructor's class roster is NOT automatically dropped from the class. The student must adjust his/her schedule by dropping the class. This policy applies to the first two hours of a class, not the first two days.

CLASSES CANCELED DUE TO INSUFFICIENT ENROLLMENT
Some classes and workshops listed in the summer quarter Schedule of Classes are offered only if enrollment is sufficient. To be certain that a specific course will be offered, contact the department/school offering the course. To be sure that a specific workshop or special program will be offered, contact the Office of Summer Sessions and Winter Intersession, (740) 593-2583, or 888-551-6446.

CLASS PERMISSION SLIPS
For Athens campus students, class permission slips may be requested from instructors or the academic departments/schools where the courses are taught. Return the signed class permission slip for processing to the appropriate office, as indicated on the class permission slip, no later than Monday, July 6, 2009 for the full quarter, Monday, June 29, 2009, for the first session, or Monday, August 3, 2009, for the second session.

Class permission slips are to be used when one or more of the following conditions exist:

Permission is required from department/instructor to enroll in class and student has obtained permission.

Student does NOT meet prerequisites but has permission to enroll in class and enforced prerequisites are being waived.

Class is full but student has permission to enroll in class.


Permission to add class after 8th day. (Instructor's permission is required to add a class after the 8th day of the quarter.)

Student has reached maximum repeat/retake limit but has received permission to enroll in class and maximum repeat/retake limit is being waived.
(Class permission slips must be returned to Registrar Services, first floor lobby, Chubb Hall, to be processed.)

Note: If your class permission slip has an expiration date, it must be processed on or before that date, but no later than the dates listed above.

CLASS SCHEDULE, CHANGE OF
All students must use Web Registration to make any changes to their class schedules. Dates as well as hours of operation for Web Registration are available on the Registration Schedule. Please pay close attention to the deadlines for adding and dropping classes. For information concerning fee changes, see General Information: Fee Assessment Information.

COMMENCEMENT/CAP AND GOWN/HONORS
Commencement

To be eligible to participate in commencement, have your name listed in the commencement program, and purchase a cap and gown, you must have graduated the previous summer, fall, or winter quarter or have filed a valid graduation application for spring quarter.

Cap and Gown
For students participating in commencement, the schedule for cap and gown sales will be available at www.ohio.edu/commencement/.

Honors
Honors for spring commencement are determined based on the most recent accumulative GPA prior to spring quarter.

COMPUTERS (Technical Support)
If you have questions about any aspect of computer, e-mail, or Internet usage, you may call the Service Desk, (740) 593-1222, or stop by the Technology Depot, Baker University Center 112.

Sales of wireless network cards, storage media and flash drives, cables, and other computer accessories.

Free virus recovery tools.

For more information, please visit www.ohio.edu/technology/depot.

COURSE LOAD
Undergraduate Students
Full-time undergraduate students usually carry a normal load of 16-20 quarter hours (even those students on academic probation). Eleven credit hours is considered full time by the University for fee purposes; however, student athletes and students receiving financial aid must carry a minimum of 12 quarter hours to be considered full time. Students receiving scholarships may have to carry up to 16 quarter hours, depending on scholarship criteria. Students scheduling more than 20 hours will be charged an additional fee for each hour taken above 20 hours.

Graduate Students
Students with graduate research, teaching, or graduate assistantship appointments must register for a minimum of 12 graduate hours. Some departments require more. Those with fellowships or tuition scholarships must register for a minimum of 15 graduate hours. Undergraduate courses, courses taken for audit, and OPIE language courses cannot be used to meet minimum requirements for graduate student course loads. Students scheduling more than 18 hours will be charged an additional fee for each hour taken above 18 hours.

International Students
To comply with immigration regulations, international students (F-1 or J-1 status) must register as full-time students (undergraduates must take 12 hours per quarter and graduate students must take nine hours per quarter to maintain full-time status). Students must not drop any courses that would take them below full-time status without having the prior approval of an advisor in the Office of International Student and Faculty Services (ISFS).

Maximum Credit Hours Allowed Without Permission
Web Registration will allow an undergraduate student to register for a maximum of 20 credit hours and a graduate student to register for a maximum of 18 credit hours in a given quarter. Web Registration will not allow a student to register for a course that causes the total hours to exceed the maximum hours. For example, an undergraduate student already registered for 16 hours may not add a five-hour course, because this would exceed the limit. If there is a need for a student to exceed the maximum hours, an undergraduate student should contact the student services office in his/her college or regional campus student services office for permission, and a graduate student should contact his/her graduate program chair/director. Students granted permission to exceed the maximum hours will receive Permission to Exceed Maximum Hours forms, which should be returned to Registrar Services, first floor lobby, Chubb Hall. Note that graduate students registering for more than 18 hours or undergraduate students registering for more than 20 hours will see an increase in tuition charges.

A student who is close to the maximum and needs to add a class (and drop another section of the same course) may avoid exceeding the maximum by using the replacement feature in Web Registration.

COURSE OFFERINGS
In addition to the summer quarter Schedule of Classes, search for course offerings by accessing the Office of the University Registrar Web site, www.ohio.edu/registrar, and selecting Course Offerings under Online Services. This information is updated approximately twice an hour during registration periods. Listings of all classes currently offered and detailed information about each class are included.

DAY KEY (Class Meeting)
The class meeting days of the week abbreviations are: M=Monday, T=Tuesday, W=Wednesday, Th or R=Thursday, F=Friday, S=Saturday, SU=Sunday. If a class meets seven days a week, the days will be displayed as MTWRFSSU.

DEGREE AUDIT REPORTING SYSTEM (DARS)
A DARS report is issued to currently enrolled students each quarter for priority registration by the college student services office or regional campus student services office (see General Information: Registration Material Locations). This report includes your Registration Access Code (RAC) and your registration access time. This report helps in determining requirements for graduation by showing progress toward completing those requirements. If you have enrolled at Ohio University Fall Quarter 2005-06 or later, you may view your DARS report online by accessing the Office of the University Registrar Web site, www.ohio.edu/registrar, and selecting MyDARS under Online Services.

If you are thinking about changing your major, you may request a "What - If" DARS report from the MyDARS site mentioned above, from the student services office of the college that offers the major you are considering, or from your regional campus student services office. This report will help you determine how courses already completed will apply to the new major as well as what additional courses are needed to complete that program.

Special Note Concerning Hours and Grades on the DARS Report:
Your official Ohio University transcript lists all courses you have taken or are taking at Ohio University, the grades you have earned, and your official grade point average (GPA). These totals are used to determine graduation rank, graduation with honors, financial aid and scholarship eligibility, fees, and total hours earned at Ohio University that may be applied toward graduation from any of the colleges.

Your DARS report shows how these courses and grades apply to the graduation requirements for a particular program. Most of the time the total hours attempted (HA), hours earned (HE), and grade point average (GPA) displayed in the General Graduation Requirements section of your DARS report will match those on your transcript. However, legitimate differences may exist. For example, some colleges have limits on such things as the total number of physical education activity hours that can apply toward degree requirements, and some do not. Some have limits on other categories, such as the number of technical elective credits and number of hours with grades of "CR" that can count toward graduation. Also, there are limits on the total number of hours in developmental courses and the total number of hours with P (pass) grades. All of these count in the total number of hours earned at Ohio University on your transcript, but they may or may not count toward graduation depending upon the program you are completing and other limitations. DARS reflects these idiosyncrasies for each individual program counting only the hours and grades that are appropriate for that program, thereby giving you an accurate statement of your progress toward completing graduation requirements for that particular program.

Sometimes discrepancies can exist because students take courses they should not take (for example, Math 163A after passing Math 263A and B). In this case, DARS deducts the credit and grade for Math 163A, but Math 163A will still show on the transcript.

DEPARTMENTAL HONORS
Students in a recognized departmental honors program may take a maximum of three graduate courses in their major department during their senior year (i.e., after earning 135 or more hours of credit). Hours earned in these courses will count toward total hours required for graduation and the grades will be calculated into the undergraduate GPA. Registration in graduate courses requires permission from the instructor. Participation in this option is at the discretion of the department or school. Graduate courses taken in this manner will not apply to graduate credit at a future time.

For Athens campus students, permission slips for departmental honors students may be obtained through the academic departments where the courses are taught. Return the signed permission slip for processing to Registrar Services, first floor lobby, Chubb Hall, no later than Monday, July 6, 2009 for the full quarter, Monday, June 29, 2009, for the first session, or Monday, August 3, 2009, for the second session.

DESCRIPTION OF COURSE OFFERINGS
In the course offerings, a typical search will display course and class information including the following (with an option to expand for additional information):

Course number
Title
Call number
Section number
Meeting times
Meeting days
Quarter hour(s) of credit
Instructor
Additional course fees
Class begin date
Class end date
Number of students enrolled

Class status
"Arranged" indicates that meeting time is an arrangement between the instructor and the student.

In a course carrying variable credit hours, credits may be expressed "1-4" indicating that one credit hour is the minimum and four credit hours are the maximum number of credits that can be earned for the course.

Course catalog numbers indicate the student classification for which courses are designed. The numbers are:
001-099 Noncredit courses
100-299 Undergraduate general program courses
300-499 Undergraduate advanced, specialized courses
500-699 Graduate program courses
700-899 Advanced graduate program courses
You may also audit a class with instructor permission. Fees for auditing a class are the same as taking a class for credit. Be certain to indicate audit when registering via Web Registration.

For course descriptions consult the undergraduate and graduate catalogs.

Some classes may be added or deleted subsequent to the publication of the Schedule of Classes, and some classes may be offered only if enrollment is sufficient. To be certain a specific course will be offered contact the department offering the course. Search for course offerings by accessing the Office of the University Registrar Web site, www.ohio.edu/registrar, and selecting Course Offerings under Online Services. This information is updated approximately twice an hour during registration periods.

DIRECTORY INFORMATION DEADLINE
Students who do not want their directory information printed in the annual Campus Directory must complete the Ohio University Confidentiality Status Request form available at www.ohio.edu/registrar/ferpa.cfm or from Registrar Services, first floor lobby, Chubb Hall. This form must be returned to the Office of the University Registrar, Chubb Hall, within the first 15 calendar days of fall quarter. After this time, students may still have their directory information flagged for nonrelease in the Student Information System (SIS), and the Ohio University online eDirectory, but not the printed directory, which is updated only once per year.

It should be understood that by exercising their option for nondisclosure of directory information, students will no longer be provided with enrollment/degree verification service for employment, insurance discounts, or other purposes. Also, the student will not be listed in the graduation commencement program. Confidentiality status is permanent unless removed by written request from the student.

E-MAIL (YOUR OAK ACCOUNT)
Your Ohio University Oak e-mail account will be enabled when you activate your Oak ID. Your Oak e-mail account includes free software, spam and virus filtering, Web-based access option, network file storage, and personal Web page capabilities.

Please check your Oak e-mail regularly for official University correspondence. Quarterly grades, schedules, billing notification, and other University communications are sent to your Oak account. Many Ohio University departments and professors depend on Oak e-mail for both announcements and assignments. We do not recommend forwarding your Oak account.

If you have problems accessing your e-mail or have questions, call the Service Desk, (740) 593-1222.

FEE ASSESSMENT INFORMATION
Quarterly fees include the instructional fee and the general fee. Tuition and fee rates are available at www.ohio.edu/finance/bursar/tuitionfees.cfm. This figure excludes course fees, which are listed in the course offerings. Ohio University reserves the right to make, without prior notice, any fee adjustments that may become necessary.

Fees are assessed based on the following:

I. Campus
Fees vary based on the campus on which student is registered.

II. Course Load
Full-time or standard fees are charged when an undergraduate student schedules 11 or more hours and a graduate student schedules nine or more hours. Part-time fees are charged when an undergraduate student schedules fewer than 11 hours and a graduate student fewer than nine hours. An Extra-Hour fee is charged for each hour beyond 20 hours for undergraduate students and 18 hours for graduate students.

III. The Level of the Student (graduate or undergraduate) NOT the Level of the Course
Undergraduate students may not schedule graduate-level courses unless they are admitted to a special program for this purpose. Graduate students taking undergraduate courses pay graduate fees.

IV. Standing (regional campuses, undergraduate only)
Students who have earned 96 or fewer hours and are registered on a regional campus will pay a lower tuition rate than students who have earned more than 96 hours.

V. The Residence Classification of the Student
The difference between resident fees and nonresident fees is the out-of-state surcharge for non-Ohio residents. Petitions for change of residency must be submitted to either Undergraduate Admissions or Graduate Studies prior to the last day to register for class for the term you wish reclassification.

VI. Course Fees
Course fees are assessed in addition to instructional and general fees. Course fees for specific classes are listed in the course offerings.

VII. Insurance
Ohio University requires that all domestic students taking seven or more credit hours and all international students taking one or more credit hours carry medical insurance if they are enrolled on the Athens campus. An accident and sickness insurance plan designed to supplement the care provided by the Student Health Service is automatically billed to all students meeting this guideline. Domestic students can complete a waiver declaration, if they have comparable coverage. Students must waive the insurance by accessing their current account statement at http://www.ohio.edu/finance/bursar/eAccount.cfm or by completing a waiver with the Office of the Bursar, ground floor lobby, Chubb Hall, by Monday, July 13, 2009. International students must carry the Ohio University Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan unless they have a government sponsor. Only the Office of International Student and Faculty Services (ISFS) can waive the insurance plan for an international student.

The accident and sickness insurance plan is also available for dependents. International students are required to purchase the Ohio University policy for their dependent spouses and children. An enrollment card for dependents is available at the Hudson Health Center insurance office. The insurance premium is a nonrefundable charge.

Regional campus students should contact their regional campus student services office for enrollment information. Regional campus students are not automatically enrolled in an insurance plan.

For further information about the Ohio University Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan, contact Hudson Health Center, (740) 597-1816, 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m., Monday - Friday.

VIII. WellBeing Plan
The WellBeing Plan is a waivable student health option of $40 per quarter that allows health and counseling services to enhance service to students. The office added evening and weekend hours, new counselors, a new provider, additional psychiatrist hours, 24/7 crisis help line, and additional women's health services. The plan eliminates co-pays and co-insurance of up to $15 for office visits, lab work, and x-rays at the Student Health Center. The fee also provides students with 13 free individual sessions and unlimited free group mental health services per year with Counseling and Psychological Services. The waiver must be completed by Monday, July 13, 2009, with the Office of the Bursar, ground floor lobby, Chubb Hall.

IX. Student Legal Service Fee
The Center for Student Legal Services (CSLS) is entirely supported by the fee. All Athens campus students are automatically billed the student legal service fee. If you do not want access to the services, you can opt out by accessing your current account statement at http://www.ohio.edu/finance/bursar/eAccount.cfm or by completing a waiver with the Office of the Bursar, ground floor lobby, Chubb Hall, by Monday, August 17, 2009. Remember, for only $8.00 you can talk with an attorney, get advice, information, and free mediation referrals.

Regional campus students are not eligible for this service, but multicampus students may be eligible. If a student takes classes on the Athens campus as well as a regional campus, it is the student's responsibility to have his/her home campus code changed to Athens to be eligible for this service. The student must contact Registrar Services, first floor lobby, Chubb Hall, or regional campus student services office to have the campus code changed.

Unlike the Student Health Insurance program, the CSLS fee must be processed each quarter. All Athens campus students will be charged and enrolled each quarter. Removal of the fee will occur upon receipt of a written request or completed waiver. The student may complete the waiver/enrollment card at the Office of the Bursar, ground floor lobby, Chubb Hall. The waiver must be completed by Monday, August 17, 2009.

X. Technology Fee
Students with majors or admission to academic programs in the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Business, the College of Education, the College of Health and Human Services (graduate students only), the Russ College of Engineering and Technology, and the Scripps College of Communication will be assessed a fee for computing and other types of technology (regardless of schedule) based on the following charts. Students who are being charged a technology fee for a college where they are no longer pursing a degree should contact that college to officially drop the program. Graduate students should contact the Graduate College. Requests should be made prior to Monday, July 6, 2009.

Refund Information
I. Refund of Housing Charges
See General Information: Housing and Food Service Regulations for the refund schedule for housing charges.

II. Refund of Registration Fees - Withdrawal from the University and Withdrawal from a Class
Official cancellation from the University, dropping all classes before the first day of classes, entitles the student to a refund of 100 percent of registration fees. Official withdrawal during the first 15 calendar days of the quarter entitles the student to a refund of 80 percent of the registration fees. There is NO refund of registration fees for withdrawals after the 15th calendar day of the quarter (see Summer Quarter 2008-09 Calendar).

If a student withdraws from the University before completing full payment of fees, he/she is considered indebted to the University for the amount determined according to the refund regulations. Dropping a class within the first 15 calendar days of the quarter entitles a student to a 100 percent refund if the reduction places the student in a lower fee category. All courses dropped effective the 16th calendar day of the quarter will not result in a fee change. Corrected registration that results in increased hours could increase tuition (see Summer Quarter 2008-09 Calendar).

III. Refund of Registration Fees - Flexibly Scheduled Classes
Flexibly scheduled classes (classes that do not meet for the full session/quarter) follow a different schedule for refunds and to remove classes from a student's academic record. Please check with the Office of the University Registrar, Chubb Hall, (740) 593-4324, or your regional campus student services office for the drop deadline.

IV. Withdrawal Policy for Financial Aid Recipients
See General Information: Financial Aid Withdrawal Policy for Financial Aid Recipients.

V. Withdrawal Policy for International Students
International students (F-1 or J-1 status) must meet with an advisor in the Office of International Student and Faculty Services (ISFS) prior to withdrawing from all classes or dropping below full-time enrollment.

VI. Special Course/Workshop
When available, information about fees is included in the workshop information. The comprehensive fee does not cover such fees. Payment deadlines for workshops vary. For specific payment deadlines, contact the Office of Summer Sessions and Winter Intersession, (740) 593-2583, or 888-551-6446. Course fees are assessed in addition to instructional and general fees. Course fees for specific classes are listed in the course offerings.

FINAL EXAMINATIONS
Final examinations are scheduled for the last meeting time of each class.

FINANCIAL AID
Registered for Summer Quarter
eBills for summer quarter are generated by the Office of the Bursar, ground floor lobby, Chubb Hall, and will show ALL financial aid awards that have been awarded at that time. All financial aid recipients must pay the balance due by the regular payment deadline of Monday, June 8, 2009, for summer quarter fees and housing charges. Failure to meet this deadline will result in a $100 late payment fee being added to your student account.

Enrollment Status for Financial Aid Recipients

For financial aid purposes, full-time enrollment is 12 credit hours for undergraduate students and nine credit hours for graduate students. All undergraduate Ohio residents receiving the The Federal Pell Grant or the Ohio College Opportunity Grant (OCOG) must be registered full time (at least 12 credit hours) to receive the maximum grant. Most Ohio University Athens campus undergraduate scholarship recipients must be registered for at least 16 credit hours per quarter and earn at least 48 credit hours for the academic year. Federal Direct Student and PLUS Loan recipients must be registered at least half time (six undergraduate credit hours or five graduate hours) to receive these loans. Aid recipients registered for less than full-time enrollment may be eligible to receive a proportionately adjusted award amount for certain aid programs.

Financial Aid Credits
The financial aid credits that will be applied to your account include the following: Federal Pell Grant or the Ohio College Opportunity Grant (OCOG), Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG), Federal Academic Competitiveness Grant, National SMART Grant, TEACH Grant, Federal Perkins Loans, Federal Direct Student and PLUS Loans, Ohio University Grants, Ohio University and Corporate Scholarships, and Outside Agency Scholarships (applied once donor check has been received and deposited by the University). If you have been selected for verification, no disbursements of federal, state, or institutional aid will be made unless all requested documents have been received and processed. Federal Work-Study awards are not credited to your account. Those funds are disbursed biweekly in the form of a payroll check or direct deposited, based on your hours worked for that pay period.

Financial Aid Refunds
Financial aid awards that exceed the amount you owe to the University for summer quarter will be disbursed to you as a "refund(s)" during summer quarter if you have satisfied the eligibility requirements (i.e., enrolled for sufficient hours, meeting the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards, not in default on Title IV Loan, etc.) for each award. Refunds for summer quarter will start being direct deposited on or about Monday, June 22, 2009, or mailed to your local address beginning Friday, June 26, 2009. Refunds will be mailed to local school addresses or direct deposited. Please be sure your local school address is correct (see General Information: Address, Change of).

Refunds will be processed daily for those students enrolled in direct deposit with the Office of the Bursar. Paper checks will only be printed once a week. Choosing a paper check over direct deposit will delay receipt of your refund. Please note that if you have direct deposit for your University payroll, you will still need to enroll in direct deposit with the Office of the Bursar. Sign up is easy...just visit http://www.ohio.edu/finance/bursar/eAccount.cfm and select Direct Deposit or visit the Office of the Bursar, ground floor lobby, Chubb Hall, on the Athens campus or your regional campus student services office.

Withdrawal Policy for Financial Aid Recipients
Title IV Funds

You are a Title IV financial aid recipient if you receive Federal Direct Loans (Subsidized, Unsubsidized, or PLUS), Federal Perkins Loans, Federal Pell Grant, Federal SEOG, Federal Academic Competitiveness Grant, National SMART Grant, TEACH Grant, or Federal Stafford Loans (for College of Osteopathic Medicine students). If you receive Title IV financial aid and officially withdraw from Ohio University, the amount of aid earned and unearned will be calculated using the Federal Return of Title IV Funds policy. This policy is a formula that measures the percentage of days enrolled during a quarter. The percentage is determined by dividing the number of days enrolled by the number of calendar days in the quarter, including weekends and holidays. Based on this percentage, financial aid will be prorated to reflect the amount of aid that was earned during the period of enrollment. The amount of aid that was earned will remain on your student account, and the amount of aid that was unearned will be returned to the appropriate programs. Once the attendance percentage reaches 60%, all Title IV financial aid is considered to be earned.

If it is determined that Title IV funds need to be returned, by Federal Law, they will be returned in the following order:

Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loans
Subsidized Federal Stafford Loans
Unsubsidized Federal Direct Loans
Subsidized Federal Direct Loans
Federal Perkins Loans
Federal Direct PLUS Loans
Federal Pell Grant
Federal Academic Competitiveness Grant
National SMART Grant
Federal SEOG
Federal TEACH Grant
Other Title IV Assistance

State and Institutional Grants
If you receive financial aid that consists of state or University grant funds, they are subject to the University refund policy. If you officially withdraw during the first 15 calendar days of the quarter, 80 percent of the grant funds will be returned to the appropriate program. After the 15th calendar day of the quarter, 100 percent of the grant funds will remain on your student account.

Undergraduate and Graduate Scholarships
If you receive financial aid that consists of undergraduate or graduate scholarships, it is subject to a special University policy. If you officially withdraw during the first 15 calendar days of the quarter, 100 percent of the scholarship funds will be returned to the appropriate program. After the 15th calendar day of the quarter, 100 percent of the scholarship funds will remain on your student account.

College of Osteopathic Medicine Loans and Scholarships
If you receive financial aid that consists of College of Osteopathic Medicine Scholarships, Scholarships for Disadvantaged Students, Loans for Disadvantaged Students, Primary Care Loans, or other non-Title IV aid, you are subject to a special University policy. If you officially withdraw during the first 15 calendar days of the quarter, 100 percent of the scholarship funds will be returned to the appropriate program. After the 15th calendar day of the quarter, 100 percent of the scholarship funds will remain on your student account.

Unofficial Withdrawals
If you are receiving financial aid and stop attending the University and do not withdraw officially, it is considered an unofficial withdrawal and will be subject to the above withdrawal policies. The date of withdrawal will be the date of a student's last attendance at an academically related event. If the last date of attendance is unknown, the midpoint of the quarter will be used as the withdrawal date. If you have not attended any classes you are registered for, you are considered an unofficial withdrawal and have not earned any financial aid. Therefore, all aid will be returned to the appropriate program. You will receive FN (failure, never attended) or FS (failure, stopped attending) grades.

Enrollment Status
If you are receiving financial aid, a change in your enrollment status or your withdrawal from the University may result in you having to repay programs from which you received financial assistance. In addition, you may owe fees to the University after funds are returned to the financial aid programs.

A student is not eligible for a refund until all Federal Title IV programs and other grants and scholarships are reimbursed as required and all outstanding balances with the University have been cleared.

Specific questions regarding this withdrawal policy can be answered by the Office of the Bursar, ground floor lobby, Chubb Hall, (740) 593-4130.

GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS
If you are a transfer student, your requirements are determined by when you enroll and the number and type of credit hours transferred. Honors Tutorial students are not required to complete General Education requirements.

General Education - Tier I English Composition

A first-year composition course and an advanced junior-level composition course are required. Any English 151, 151A, 152, 153, 153A, or 153B will satisfy the University General Education first-year writing requirement (1E). These courses are alternative, not sequential, courses in writing. You should select your course by reviewing the descriptions and choosing the one that appeals to you. (All regional campus students are given a placement test.)

In your junior year, you must take an approved junior writing course unless you demonstrate advanced writing proficiency by passing the junior-level exemption exam. For information about the exemption exam, contact the Center for Writing Excellence, (740) 597-1313. The following courses fulfill the junior-level composition requirement: ART 300J; B A 325J; CLWR 385J; ENG 305J, 306J, 307J, 308J, 309J, or 384J; FILM 344J; HCGE 345J; HIST 301J, or 396J; HLTH 370J; IART 360J; JOUR 441J; M L 321J or 370J; PBIO 418J; POLS 305J; PRCM 325J; REC 370J.

General Education - Tier I Quantitative Skills
First-year and transfer students entering Ohio University after 1980 must demonstrate an acceptable level of quantitative skills in order to satisfy General Education requirements. The University uses a student's ACT or SAT math score (see chart below) to determine the student's skill level for placement, unless the Tier I quantitative skills requirement has been satisfied by transfer or advanced placement credit. Students in some majors are required to have a math placement regardless of transfer or advanced placement credit in order to meet prerequisite requirements. The choice of the course in which you should enroll (if any) depends on your major, University catalog of entry, and math placement, and should be discussed with your academic advisor.

Students without ACT scores, SAT scores, advanced placement, or a transferable math course must take an online math placement test. Direct questions to the placement testing coordinator, University College, (740) 593-1935. Regional campus students should contact their student services offices.

Math Placement Scores
Math
Placement
Level
ACT math score SAT math score
DV1 0 - 15 0 - 379
DV2 16 - 19 380 - 479
PL1 20 - 23 480 - 559
PL2 24 - 29 560 - 679
PL3 30 - 36 680 - 800

Following is a chart and description of each math placement level:

Math Placement Levels
Math
Placement
Level
First Course
DV1 MATH 101, (Basic Mathematics does not meet General Education requirements)
DV2 MATH 102, (Elementary Algebra does not meet General Education requirements)

PSY 120 (Elementary Statistics)
PL2 MATH 163A (Intro to Calculus I), or MATH 115 (Pre-Calculus), or
PSY 221 (Statistics for Behavorial Science)
PL3 MATH 263A (Calculus I), or MATH 266A (Calculus with Applications to Biology I)

Developmental (DV1)
Placement at this level indicates inadequate preparation to enroll in a Tier I quantitative skills course. You must complete MATH 101 before enrolling in MATH 102. Students receiving this recommendation who plan to major in an area requiring advanced math (e.g. engineering, or business majors) should discuss their choice with the faculty or professional advisors.

Developmental (DV2)
This level indicates inadequate preparation to enroll in a Tier I quantitative skills course. You must complete MATH 102 before enrolling in a Tier I quantitative skills course.

Placement Level 1 (PL1)
Placement at this level indicates preparation for any of the following Tier I-fulfilling courses: MATH 109, 113, 117, 118 (available only at regional campuses and through correspondence), 120 (early childhood, middle childhood, and intervention specialist education majors only), 147, PHIL 120, PSY 120.

Placement Level 2 (PL2)
Placement at this level indicates preparation for Level 1 courses as well as these additional Tier I-fulfilling courses: MATH 115 (recommended only for students who plan to enroll in MATH 263A or 266A), 150, 163A, 250, PSY 221.

Placement Level 3 (PL3)
Placement at this level demonstrates quantitative skill competence sufficient to fulfill the Tier I quantitative skills requirement. If your major requires that you enroll in a quantitative skills course, placement at Level 3 indicates preparation for MATH 263A (or MATH 266A for natural science majors) and any course in Levels 1 or 2.

General Education - Tier II

All students (except Honors Tutorial students) must fulfill Tier II General Education requirements. The University revised the General Education requirement for students entering Fall Quarter 2008-09 or later. Students who completed their first classes Summer Quarter 2007-08 or earlier are subject to the requirements in effect at the time, unless their University catalog of entry is updated to a later catalog. Students who completed their first classes Summer Quarter 2007-08 or earlier are required to take 30 hours of coursework with at least four hours from four of the following five areas: Applied Science and Technology, Cross-Cultural Perspectives, Humanities and Fine Arts, Natural Sciences and Mathematics, and Social Sciences. Students should consult with their advisors in planning their selections of Tier II courses.

Students who complete their first classes Fall Quarter 2008-09 or later are subject to the new General Education requirements. Students are required to complete a total of 32 credit hours from an approved list of courses in the following six distribution areas:

Applied Science and Mathematics (2AS)
Cross-Cultural Perspectives (2CP)
Fine Arts (2FA)
Humanities and Literature (2HL)
Natural Sciences (2NS)
Social Sciences (2SS)

You are required to take at least three credit hours in each of the six areas and may satisfy no more than two of the required six areas with courses from the same department/school. You may satisfy no more than 12 of the 32 hours with courses from the same department/school.

You may apply no more than two approved Tier II courses in your major department/school or area of concentration (for B.S.S. students) toward partial fulfillment of the Tier II requirement.

Approved courses are marked in Course Offerings and the Course Descriptions section of the Ohio University Undergraduate Catalog with 2AS, 2CP, 2FA, 2HL, 2NS, or 2SS as the general education code.

General Education - Tier III

Students are required to complete at least four hours in Tier III or Tier III-equivalent course(s). At least two of the four hours must be taken at senior rank (135 hours). A complete list of Tier III and equivalent courses is available by searching for Tier III in course offerings, or in the Ohio University Undergraduate Catalog by going to course descriptions and searching for the keyword "T3." Approved courses are marked in the Course Descriptions section of the catalog with T3 as the general education code. Students may fulfill this requirement by taking at least four hours in Tier III-equivalent course(s) in their major; they should see their major advisor for information as to whether their discipline offers such a course or courses.

GRADE APPEALS
Once grades are submitted to the University Registrar, they are final and cannot be changed unless evidence of an error can be presented or a formal grade appeal process is completed in accordance with Ohio University’s official grade appeal policy (see the Faculty Handbook section “Final Examinations and Change of Grade”).

GRADE REPORT, STUDENT
Final grade reports are sent to students' Oak e-mail accounts after grades are processed.

LEVEL CHANGE - Undergraduate to Graduate/Graduate to Undergraduate
A student requesting a change from undergraduate to graduate level must submit an application to the Graduate College, McKee House. A student with graduate status will be billed for graduate fees regardless of the level of the courses for which he/she registers. Graduate credit will not be awarded for undergraduate courses.

A student requesting a change from graduate to undergraduate level for a current or future quarter must process a change of level through Undergraduate Admissions on the Athens campus or at his/her regional campus student services office. Students switching to undergraduate status may not register for graduate-level courses until a new level change to graduate status is requested and processed.

MAJOR PROGRAM OR COLLEGE, CHANGE OF
If your major program is listed as undecided and you wish to declare a major, or if you would like to change your major, you will need to visit the college in which the major is offered to see if you meet the entry requirements.

Sometimes a change in major will necessitate transferring to another college (e.g., Arts and Sciences to Scripps College of Communication). You then make application for transfer in the student services office of the college to which you would like to be admitted. If you are an Honors Tutorial student, go to your college prior to making application in the student services office of the college to which you would like to be admitted. The change must be processed within the first 15 calendar days of the quarter or you will remain enrolled in the initial college for the rest of that quarter. You must fulfill degree requirements of the college into which you transfer. You may, however, simultaneously pursue programs in one college or more than one college. (Consult the student services office in your college about dual degree and double major opportunities.)

Graduate students seeking to change degree programs or colleges must apply and be admitted to a new program.

Please be aware that this registration process has been set in place to protect disability parking for those who are truly disabled. For more information, please refer to: www.facilities.ohiou.edu/parking/disabled.htm

Motorcycle Parking
Motorcycles are required to be parked in designated motorcycle lots as indicated on the campus parking map. No permit or fee is required.

Boot/Impounding Procedures
Any illegally parked vehicle or any vehicle that has outstanding parking violations may be booted/impounded. If your vehicle is booted/impounded, all outstanding fees must be paid in order to release the vehicle. In addition to the violation(s) charged by the department and boot release fees, the towing company will charge a fee at the time of release. Please do not assume your tickets are being billed to your student account. Citations are not billed to your student account unless the vehicle is registered with parking services.

For a full list of parking regulations and information, please visit www.facilities.ohiou.edu/parking or call (740) 593-1917.

PASS/FAIL GRADING OPTION (NOT available through Web Registration)
A student interested in taking a class under the pass/fail grading option, should register for the class via Web Registration, then contact the student services office in his/her college or regional campus student services office (during the first 15 calendar days of the quarter ONLY) to request that a course be taken pass/fail. A pass/fail request by a regional campus student is reviewed by the appropriate college's student services office on the Athens campus and may be denied if an inappropriate choice has been made. A regular grade course may NOT be changed to pass/fail option and pass/fail course may NOT be changed to regular grade option after Monday, July 6, 2009, for the full quarter, Monday, June 29, 2009, for the first session, or Monday, August 3, 2009, for the second session.

Students may complete no more than 20 quarter hours under the pass/fail option. No course taken pass/fail may be used to fulfill any graduation requirement (college, school, or department) other than total hours. To be eligible for the pass/fail option the student must have earned a GPA of 2.5 or better for his/her last quarter of full-time enrollment or have an accumulative GPA of 2.0 or better. First-quarter freshmen are not subject to the GPA requirements. A student may take only one course per quarter or summer session pass/fail.

Note:
This option is NOT available through Web Registration. Graduate-level courses (500 and higher) may not be taken under the pass/fail option. Do not confuse the pass/fail option with auditing a class.

PERMISSION REQUIRED/BLOCKED CLASSES
Classes that have been blocked from Web Registration require permission and must be added in person. Athens campus students use a class permission slip from the department/school office of the course or the instructor of the class (see General Information: Class Permission Slips). Regional campus students contact their regional campus student services office.

PERSONAL INFORMATION, CHANGE OF
All changes of student personal data must be reported to the appropriate office (see your DARS report for current information on file). Forms are available at Registrar Services, first floor lobby, Chubb Hall, or regional campus student services offices.

Changes of name, Social Security number, or birth date require official documents and/or court orders verifying the correct information at the time the requests are made. These changes (name, Social Security number, or birth date) are processed only by the Office of the University Registrar, Chubb Hall.

PREREQUISITE KEY
The prerequisites listed for each class in the course offerings section of the summer quarter Schedule of Classes are the minimum requirements for each class. Students may petition instructors/departments/schools to override listed prerequisites. This requires a class permission slip (see General Information: Class Permission Slips and Prerequisite Key).

PREREQUISITE PROCESSING
You are required to meet all of the prerequisites for a given course. Failure to meet prerequisites can block your registration for the course or result in a drop or withdrawal from that course. Prerequisites are listed in the course offerings section of the Schedule of Classes (see Prerequisite Key).

RECREATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES
See Campus Recreation, www.ohio.edu/recreation, for information about recreational opportunities on campus. The general fee includes admission to the Ping Center, Aquatic Center, Bird Ice Arena, and outdoor tennis courts. Admission covers the quarter period only.

Baker University Center
Named for Ohio's 14th President John Calhoun Baker, the Center opened in January, 2007. The building provides facilities, programs, services, and amenities that serve the University community, the Athens community, and visitors. It is operated by the Division of Students Affairs. Visit www.ohio.edu/center/ to take a floor-by-floor tour of this amazing Ohio University focal point!


RE-ENROLLING STUDENTS
Enrolled Since Fall Quarter 1985
Undergraduate students previously registered for classes at Ohio University and planning to continue in their previous status may contact the Office of the University Registrar at (740) 593-4191, Registrar Services, first floor lobby, Chubb Hall, or their regional campus student services offices for assistance. Graduate students should contact the Graduate College, McKee House, for assistance. Students may register by using Web Registration (see Registration Schedule). Access to the registration system requires the student's current Registration Access Code (RAC). The RAC is confidential information and, therefore, cannot be given over the telephone.

Enrolled Prior to Fall Quarter 1985
Students enrolled prior to Fall Quarter 1985 wishing to register for summer classes must complete a re-enrollment form. Undergraduate students must complete Form A and Form C. Graduate students must complete Form B and Form C. Contact Registrar Services, first floor lobby, Chubb Hall, (740) 593-4191.

REGISTRATION
I. Students New to the University
Undergraduate Students

Students who are new to the University must go through the orientation process as indicated in their admission material. Information can be obtained by calling the Orientation Office, (740) 593-1951, or contacting regional campus student services offices.

Graduate Students
Contact the academic school or department.

International Students
All incoming undergraduate and graduate students must report to the Office of International Student and Faculty Services (ISFS), Baker University Center 348, with their passports and visa documents to check in before registering for classes. In addition, these students are required to attend the international orientation program, which may include TOEFL testing. Questions concerning these requirements may be directed to ISFS, (740) 593-4330. (This information applies to students at both the Athens and regional campuses.) Undergraduate international students must also attend the undergraduate student orientation; see www.ohio.edu/precollege for more information. Graduate international students should contact their academic department regarding departmental orientations.

II. Continuing Students
Continuing students may register using Web Registration beginning on Tuesday, April 7, 2009, according to the Registration Schedule . Students not wishing to register using Web Registration may register on Monday, May 4, 2009, at Registrar Services, first floor lobby, Chubb Hall, or their regional campus student services offices.

III. In-Person Registration
Eligible students (current or former OU students) not wishing to register using Web Registration may register on Monday, May 4, 2009, at Registrar Services, first floor lobby, Chubb Hall, or their regional campus student services offices.

IV. Re-enrolling Students
See General Information: Re-enrolling Students.

V. Registration for Transfer Degree Students and Visiting Students Pursuing a Degree at Another College or University

To register for classes or workshops at Athens or a regional campus, complete Forms B and C for graduate classes, or Forms A and C for undergraduate classes. These forms may be mailed to the Office of Summer Sessions, Haning Hall 205, Ohio University, Athens, OH 45701-2979. Registration forms are processed in the order they are received.

If a class is closed or canceled, you will be notified by the Office of the University Registrar so you can make adjustments to your schedule.

REGISTRATION ACCESS CODE (RAC)
The summer quarter RAC is the last two digits of your birth year and the two digits of your birth month (YYMM). Example: If your birthdate is 05/16/1984 then summer quarter RAC is 8405.

REPEATING A COURSE
A repeatable course is defined as a course taken for additional hours of credit toward graduation requirements (i.e., MUS 340, PSY 490). Some departments place limits on the total number of credits that may be earned in repeatable courses.

RETAKING A COURSE
A regular undergraduate course with fixed content can be retaken to affect your accumulative grade point average. Undergraduate courses that are retaken to improve a grade will be automatically identified at the time you register. Retaking the course removes the hours and the effect of the earlier grade from the calculation of the grade point average. However, all grades are printed on the student's academic record (transcript). Please note that the later grade is the one calculated in the grade point average even if it is lower than the first and that the course credit hours duplicated by retaking coursework are not accepted toward the credit hour requirement for graduation.

Graduate courses cannot be retaken to improve a low grade on the first attempt. All grades received are calculated into the graduate grade point average.

As a rule, a course designated as a prerequisite may not be retaken to affect the grade point average after you have completed higher-level coursework in the same subject area. Also, courses taken at Ohio University and retaken at another university are not eligible for grade point adjustment under this policy. You should be aware that some departments place limits on the number of times a course may be retaken, so check with the student services office in your college regarding restrictions.

Please note that retaking a course after graduation will not change your graduation grade point average, honors status, or rank in class. Some graduate and professional schools include all grades in their calculations of grade point averages while determining eligibility for admission even though Ohio University calculates only the last grade in a retaken course.

SCHEDULES, STUDENT
Official academic class schedules will be sent to registered students' Oak e-mail accounts beginning Saturday, June 13, 2009.

Students can also retrieve their class schedule by accessing the Office of the University Registrar Web site, www.ohio.edu/registrar, and selecting MySchedule under Online Services. By following instructions to request a class schedule and successfully submitting a request, schedule information is sent to students’ Oak e-mail accounts or viewed online. Student class schedule information is maintained online allowing students to obtain any updated schedule information almost as soon as it changes.

It is the student's responsibility to check the accuracy of his/her schedule prior to the 15th calendar day of the quarter.

SELECTIVE SERVICE REGISTRATION - Attention: Male students between the ages of 18 and 26.
Section 3345.32 of the Ohio Revised Code (O.R.C.) requires that male students between the ages of 18 and 26 who are Ohio residents register for selective service and verify that they have registered with the selective service in order to be considered in-state residents to attend Ohio public colleges and universities. Failure to register with selective service and provide verification of such will result, as the law stipulates, in the assessment of the out-of-state surcharge and the loss of student financial aid. The Office of the University Registrar will notify those who, according to the selective service office, have not complied with the law and ask for a statement from the student verifying his selective service status. For additional information about the Selective Service System or for online registration, visit www.sss.gov.

If you are registered for the selective service but have not received or have lost your selective service number, call (847) 688-2576 or visit www.sss.gov. If you have questions regarding the above, please call (740) 593-4186, or visit Veterans Affairs, Chubb Hall 115K, or your regional campus student services office.

SIXTY PLUS PROGRAM
Ohio State Law (Section 3345.27 of the Ohio Revised Code - House Bill 147 - effective March 30, 1999) permits the qualifying student to attend any state college or University without paying "tuition or matriculation" fees. (Course fees, technology fees, laboratory fees, etc., are the responsibility of the student and will not be waived.) This program is available only for regular classroom undergraduate courses offered on the Athens and regional campuses and only if space is available in the class. Registration will be processed only after priority registration for other students is completed. A qualifying student is defined as "any person who is sixty years of age or older and who has resided in the state for at least one year." Under this provision, the student has two options:
Option A - Noncredit
The qualifying student who wishes to participate in classes but not for credit asks permission of the instructor to sit in on the class. The student should complete the Application for Sixty Plus Program, obtain appropriate signature(s), and return the application to the Office of the University Registrar or regional campus student services office with proof of age and Ohio residency.

Option B - For Credit
The Option B procedures are for the qualifying student who wishes to earn credit for the tuition-free courses. The academic load under this arrangement for a given quarter must be less than full time; i.e., less than 11 quarter hours. In addition to being a "qualified student" as described above, the student's family income must be "less that two hundred percent of the federal poverty guideline, as revised annually by the United States secretary of health and human services in accordance with Section 673 of the 'Community Services Block Grant Act,' 95 Stat. 511 (1981) 42 U.S.C.A. 9902, as amended, for a family size equal to the size of the family of the person whose income is being determined." The student should complete the Application for Sixty Plus Program and follow the instructions for processing as described on the application.
Students interested in participating in the Sixty Plus Program should contact the Office of the University Registrar, Chubb Hall, or their regional campus student services offices for more information. The form for this process is available at www.ohio.edu/registrar/forms.cfm.

Alternatively, you may order your transcript by accessing the Office of the University Registrar Web site, www.ohio.edu/registrar, and selecting Transcripts under Online Services. The release authorization can be delivered in person, mailed to the Office of the University Registrar, Chubb Hall, Ohio University, Athens, OH 45701-2979, or faxed to (740) 593-4184. Requests should not be returned to regional campus student services offices. The written release must include:
Full name, typed or printed, with all name changes

Requests/payments may also be mailed to the Office of the University Registrar, Ohio University, Athens, OH 45701-2979. Credit card information must include name on card, type of card, account number, and date of expiration. Transcript requests faxed to the Office of the University Registrar must include credit card information.

Delivery - Restrictions and Requirements
Transcripts are sent by first class mail. Transcripts are sent electronically to certain colleges and universities in Ohio for undergraduate admissions purposes only. Certain users of transcripts, such as college admissions offices, require transcripts be sent directly to them and refuse hand-carried transcripts. Some users (especially graduate admissions) require validated envelopes, which we can provide if requested initially. Any additions/changes after delivery will require a new release and fee payment. We do NOT fax transcripts. However, we do fax unofficial copies of academic records for students transferring to another school in the USA, for admission purposes, in addition to mailing official follow-up transcripts. We offer FedEx Priority Overnight Delivery in the U.S. and internationally for an extra fee. Saturday delivery is not included with these services and FedEx does not ship to PO boxes. Please visit the Office of the University Registrar Web site, www.ohio.edu/registrar, for details.

Processing Delays
Processing of transcripts may be delayed until current term grades and/or degrees are posted, if requested. Otherwise, transcripts will be processed within three business days. Transcripts will not be processed if financial obligations or other "holds" exist for the student.

You are required to make an appointment with a Residence Life staff member in your building prior to your scheduled check out date and time to properly check out of your room, sign your Room Condition Report (RCR), and return all keys. If you have canceled your class registration you are no longer eligible to reside on campus and must move out completely within 48 hours.

International students (F-1 or J-1 status) must contact the Office of International Student and Faculty Services (ISFS), (740) 593-4330, prior to withdrawing from the University. Failure to do so may lead to serious immigration problems.
