Dates & Deadlines

Freshman Deadlines

Ohio University operates on two admission cycles: early action and rolling. Early action is a non-binding cycle that gives applicants priority consideration for direct entry to academic programs, merit scholarship programs, and University honors experiences. Applications are reviewed and OHIO admission decisions are released on a rolling basis.  

Here at OHIO we understand that natural disasters have impacted many families this year. We are committed to assisting students who are trying to make decisions about their future college careers while helping their families recover. Contact Undergraduate Admissions at 740.593.4100 to learn about options for flexibility with application and transcript deadlines and also required student records.
