About Ohio University

The OHIO experience is unique and transformative, not only for students, but for the entire southeast region of the state. With over 28,000 students enrolled across seven regional campuses and the residential campus in Athens, OHIO is recognized as one of the top character-building institutions in the country.

OHIO is rated a Very High Research Activity Institution by the Carnegie Foundation, and researchers hold more than 250 patents worldwide. The Chronicle of Higher Education lists OHIO among the top producers of Fulbright Award-winning students in the nation, and currently the university ranks among the top in the state for nationally competitive awards won by its students.

The first university in the state to offer level-rate tuition, housing, dining and fees locked in for 12 consecutive semesters, OHIO has expanded its original Guarantee program to include graduation plans that ensure on-time graduation, and has expanded access to alumni-only scholarships for continuing education as well as career counseling for life in a new program, OHIO Guarantee+.


Ohio University holds as its central purpose the intellectual and personal development of its students. Distinguished by its rich history, diverse campus, international community, and beautiful Appalachian setting, Ohio University is known as well for its outstanding faculty of accomplished teachers whose research and creative activity advance knowledge across many disciplines.


Ohio University will be the nation’s best transformative learning community where students realize their promise, faculty advance knowledge, staff achieve excellence, and alumni become global leaders.



    Ohio University's nine undergraduate colleges offer more than 250 programs of study. Students may select from a wide variety of majors, minors and certificates. While most undergraduate programs at the Athens campus are designed to be completed in four years, a limited number of two-year degree programs are available as well.
