Ohio University

A special note to our fall 2020 admitted students

On July 31, 2020, you should have received a message from Ohio University President M. Duane Nellis announcing a phased return to campus for fall semester 2020. The message includes important details about timeline and impacts to academic planning, housing and dining, as well as a commitment to an additional $5 million in institutional aid designed to support undergraduate students during these trying times.

Undergraduate students who are eligible to return to campus in Phase 1 will be notified as soon as possible and no later than August 4.

In the meantime, we know this message has prompted important questions, and our advisors are here to help you get answers and to stay on track to achieve your educational goals. You can contact the Core Advising Team with questions at advisingcenter@ohio.edu or by phone at 740.566.0340. They will be available until 5 p.m. Eastern today, noon to 5 p.m. Eastern tomorrow and then 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Eastern weekdays going forward.

And if you need to change your college plans in any way, Undergraduate Admissions is ready to help you and your family explore your options to continue your connection to OHIO. We are committed to being as flexible as possible and will support you through difficult decisions. You can connect with an advisor to learn about all of your options, including beginning your OHIO education at a regional campus, deferring your admission and scholarships, creating a transfer plan, and exploring our new OHIO Gap Experience.

Obstacles are temporary, but your connection to OHIO can be forever. We’ve been innovating and adapting for 216 years, and we’re not going to stop now. Let us know how we can help you manage these challenges.
