After You Apply

Activate Your OHIO ID

Once your application is received and begins processing, Undergraduate Admissions will send you an application acknowledgment letter with your Personal Identification (PID). Use your PID to activate your OHIO ID and create a password. After you activate your OHIO ID, you will be able to access your OHIO email, where you will find important updates on next steps from campus offices and resources. Please allow 7-10 business days to receive your application acknowledgment letter.

Submit Required Additional Materials

Some programs have more selective criteria above and beyond general admission guidelines and require submission of additional application materials beyond general admission requirements. You should review the requirements for your major and submit any additional required materials.
