Admissions Requirements and Procedures

Selective and Limited Admission

If you are planning to apply to Ohio University, please note that admission is selective--it is granted to the best qualified candidates--and admission to the University does not guarantee admission into a specific program of study. Contact Undergraduate Admissions or refer to the Colleges and Curricula section of this catalog for each college's or school's specific requirements.

Categories of Admission

Freshman Applicant

If you (1) have or soon will receive a high school diploma from a chartered or accredited secondary school or a General Education Development (GED)diploma, and (2) have not been enrolled for 12 or more quarter hours (or 9 or more semester hours) of coursework at a college or university since completing secondary school, you are considered a freshman applicant. However, if you have earned credit for college courses as a high school student through one of the post-secondary options or other concurrent enrollment programs, you are still considered a freshman applicant.

You must have a high school diploma or a GED diploma by the time you plan to enter college. Consideration for admission is based upon your high school performance (class rank, grade-point average, and curriculum); aptitude test scores (ACT or SAT I); the strength of your high school program; and special ability, talent, or achievement.

If you are considering applying for admission to Ohio University, your high school background should include these courses:

  1. Four years of English, with an emphasis on composition;

  2. Three years of mathematics (algebra I, algebra II, plane geometry; precalculus is encouraged for prospective engineering or business majors), one of which should be taken in the senior year;

  3. Three years of social sciences (history, social studies, etc.);

  4. Three years of natural sciences (physics and chemistry are encouraged if you plan to pursue an engineering major);

  5. Two years of foreign language;

  6. One year of visual or performing arts (art, band, chorus, music, orchestra, theater, etc.).

Some academic departments may have additional admission requirements. Please contact the Undergraduate Admissions or refer to the College and Curricula section of this catalog for further details.

Exceptions to this program of study may be made in light of overall academic preparedness.

Home schooled students should contact the Undergraduate Admissions for special procedures required of students who have pursued home schooling.

Freshman applicants who have been out of high school for more than 1 year are not required to submit test scores unless requested by Undergraduate Admissions.

To apply, submit a completed application for admission, the nonrefundable $45 application fee, ACT or SAT I scores (sent directly from the testing agency), and an official high school transcript (sent directly to Undergraduate Admissions from your high school) or GED score report (sent directly to the Undergraduate Admissions from the appropriate state GED office, official testing center, or GED Testing Service).

If you are on a non-immigrant visa, you should also review the international applicant section.

If you are financially disadvantaged, the application fee may be waived upon written recommendation from your high school guidance counselor.

Beginning in early fall and continuing through March, those who have submitted complete application materials will be notified of their admission status for fall quarter. Admission decisions and notifications are made on a rolling basis for all quarters.

If any special conditions apply to your enrollment, they will be clearly stated in the letter of admission.

Following acceptance for admission, you will receive information about financial aid (if you apply for financial aid) and a residence hall contract and agreement form. Since all freshmen are required to live in University housing, you should submit the $200 residence hall deposit (by May 1 if you are applying for fall quarter) to confirm your enrollment. Failure to do so may result in cancellation of your admission offer. If space remains, late housing contracts will be accepted and require the $200 deposit until July 1, after which full payment of the housing charges will be necessary to secure housing. Please refer to the Housing section in this catalog to examine housing eligibility and exemption regulations. Refunds of housing deposits will be made until May 1. You and your parents will also receive details about the Precollege Orientation program for new students after your deposit or exemption request has been received.

Transfer Applicant

All campuses of Ohio University consider you to be a transfer applicant if you have completed more than 12 quarter hours or 9 semester hours at another institution after you graduated from high school. If you complete college-level courses concurrently with high school you are considered a freshman applicant.

To be considered for transfer admission at the Athens campus of Ohio University, you must have obtained a minimum accumulative g.p.a. of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale in academic coursework from a regionally accredited institution. If you have completed less than 30 quarter or 20 semester hours of transferable coursework, or your coursework has been technical in nature, you must also meet freshman admission requirements. You must be in good standing with, and eligible to return to, your previous institution.

Admission as a transfer student does not guarantee admission to all majors, minors, or fields of concentration. Some colleges and programs at Ohio University have additional requirements for transfer student admission, including a g.p.a. higher than 2.5. Note that some programs may require a separate application that must be approved prior to official admission to the University. Please refer to the Colleges and Curricula section of this catalog for each college's or school's specific transfer admission requirements.

Since most of our programs and procedures are set up to begin fall quarter, you are strongly encouraged to apply for that term.

To apply, submit a completed application for admission form and the nonrefundable $45 application fee. You must also arrange for official transcripts to be sent directly to Undergraduate Admissions from the registrar at each college or university you have attended. If you have completed less than 30 quarter or 20 semester hours of college-level work, an official high school transcript is also required.

ACT or SAT I results are not required of students who have been out of secondary school for more than one year, unless specifically requested by Undergraduate Admissions.

Space is available in University residence halls for transfer students. After you have been accepted for admission, you will receive a housing contract.

International Applicant

If you are on a non-immigrant visa, or will require one to study, you will be considered an international applicant. Admission requirements are the same as those for U.S. citizens and permanent residents and include completion of a college-preparatory, secondary school program with excellent grades. Students wishing to transfer should have a strong grade point average in all college-level work completed.

To apply, you will need to submit an application for Admission, a $45 nonrefundable application fee, official secondary school records, ACT or SAT I examination results if you have been out of secondary school for less than one year, and official records of any university-level work completed. Financial documentation demonstrating you have sufficient funds to cover your educational and living expenses for a 12-month period must also be submitted before a visa certificate can be issued on your behalf. Contact Undergraduate Admissions for specific information regarding the above items.

If you are accepted for admission, you will be required to take an English placement test when you arrive on campus to determine if you will need additional English language instruction in the Ohio Program of Intensive English. If you need additional English language instruction, you may have to delay registering for regular classes until your English skills have improved enough to assure your success in the classroom.

When you are admitted, you will receive the appropriate materials for use in securing your student visa. Additional information, including the housing contract, will be forwarded separately after your admission.

International student application materials may be obtained from Undergraduate Admissions, Ohio University, Chubb Hall 120, Athens OH USA 45701-2979, telephone 740-593-4110. Applications are also available on-line at http://www.ohio.edu/admissions/. Further information about services for international students is available from the Office of International Student and Faculty Services, Ohio University, Scott Quad 172, Athens OH USA 45701-2979, telephone 740-593-4330.

High School Enrollment Options Applicant

The State of Ohio, under Senate Bill 140 and House Bill 215, allows area students to enroll in college-level coursework prior to graduation from high school under the Post-Secondary Enrollment Options Program (PSEOP). If you are a high school student and meet the criteria stated below, you may enroll in University classes concurrently with your high school enrollment to earn college credit or both high school and college credit. Students must live within commuting distance to Ohio University in specific counties, and must have completed at least 10 credit units as part of a college preparatory curriculum in high school.

PSEOP offers students two options for enrolling: "Option A" allows high school students to enroll concurrently for college credit only, not high school credit. Students must rank in the top 40% of their high school class. Students enrolled in Option A are responsible for tuition, fees, and textbook charges, and may enroll in any quarter, including summer.

"Option B" allows students to enroll concurrently and receive both high school credit and college credit. Students must rank in the top 25% of their high school class to enroll in "Option B". The Ohio Department of Education will pay tuition and textbook charges for those students enrolling in Option B. Option B students may enroll in any quarter except summer.

Additional information about PSEOP is available from Undergraduate Admissions, including the necessary application materials.

Please note that if you have taken college courses as a high school student under one of these options and plan to apply for admission to Ohio University as a full-time student, you will need to apply as a freshman applicant, not a transfer applicant, even though you have already earned college credit. Credit earned at Ohio University under these options will become part of your permanent record and will be figured into your accumulative grade point average.

Early Admission Applicant

Under special circumstances, Ohio University will consider admitting you as a regular University student after your junior year of high school, but before your high-school graduation. Submit a completed application for admission, the nonrefundable $45 application fee, your high school transcripts, ACT or SAT I scores (sent directly from the testing agent), a statement explaining your reasons for wanting to enroll, and a recommendation from your high school attesting to your readiness to begin college-level studies. You will be required to earn your high school diploma or GED diploma by the beginning of your sophomore year in college to continue University enrollment. Additional information on this option is available from the director of admissions.

Re-Enrolling Student

If you have previously attended one of Ohio University's campuses but are not currently enrolled (excluding summer quarter) and wish to return as an undergraduate student, you are considered a re-enrolling student. Contact the Office of the Registrar for re-enrollment information at 740-593-4191.

If you have been dropped from the University, you will need to apply to the college where you were last enrolled to be reinstated; if your records have been placed on hold, you will need to make arrangements to resolve the situation through the appropriate office before re-enrollment can be considered.

To receive information about registration, contact the registrar's office at 740-593-4191. If you have attended another college or university since you were last enrolled at Ohio University and wish to transfer credit, arrange to have a transcript sent to Undergraduate Admissions from each post-secondary institution you have attended during your absence from the University.

Relocating Student

If you are currently attending one of Ohio University's regional campuses and wish to attend the Athens campus, you are considered a relocating student. Relocation is possible for any quarter, though you should have a g.p.a. of 2.0 or better to be eligible for relocation. Contact the Office of Student Services on your regional campus for additional information.

For on-campus housing, complete a Notice of Relocation to the Athens Campus form, relocating student card, available from Residence Services office, or from the Student Services Office at your regional campus, and submit it to the Residence Services office on the Athens campus.

Nondegree Student Applicant

If you wish to carry a limited number of courses at the University during the regular academic year, and are not interested in earning a degree, you are considered a nondegree student applicant. To apply, complete a non-degree student application, available from the Undergraduate Admissions. You must have a high school diploma or GED diploma to apply as a nondegree student. You will be required to submit copies of transcripts of high school, GED results, or previous post-secondary work. The application must be received at least two weeks before the first day of classes for the quarter for which you are applying. Transcripts must be received no later than one week before the first day of classes. Contact Undergraduate Admissions for eligibility requirements.

The University currently charges a $20 nonrefundable application fee for nondegree applicants, although summer-only nondegree students are not charged. If you later wish to enter a degree program, you will need to reapply for admission.

If you wish to take courses in the summer only, contact the Office of Summer Sessions at 740-593-2583 or online at http://www.ohio.edu/summer/ for application requirements and materials.

Options for Receiving Credit

Several methods of receiving Ohio University credit for work previously completed or for general knowledge and experience are available. For further information on any of the following, contact the University Examiner, Ohio University, Chubb Hall 120, Athens OH 45701-2979, telephone 740-593-4110.

Credit for Advanced Placement (AP) and the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) If you have taken examinations provided by the Advanced Placement (AP) program of the College Board and achieved a score of three or higher, you may be able to receive Ohio University credit for your efforts. Scores must be sent directly from the College Board to Undergraduate Admissions.

Ohio University also participates in the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) sponsored by the College Board. Subject to approval by the appropriate department in each case, Ohio University will allow credit for satisfactory performance on the CLEP subject matter examinations, provided you take the examinations before you formally enroll in the University. Credit will not be awarded for CLEP exams taken after your enrollment in the University. The University does not award credit for scores achieved on the CLEP general examinations. Policies on credit for test scores are subject to change; check with Undergraduate Admissions for current information.

Detailed information about both the AP and CLEP programs is available from high school guidance offices or by contacting the College Board, Box 593, Princeton NJ 08540.

International Baccalaureate (IB) Ohio University will consider awarding up to 12 quarter hours credit for each IB higher level examination graded 5 or above. Credit is not awarded for subsidiary examinations. An official transcript of results received is required for credit consideration. For further information, contact Undergraduate Admissions.

Experiential Learning and Course Credit by Examination You also may be able to earn credit without attending formal classes through two programs offered through the University's Office of Lifelong Learning: Experiential Learning and Course Credit by Examination. Experiential Learning allows you to acquire credit for college-level experience gained through employment and community volunteer work by compiling a portfolio of learning that is reviewed by an appropriate University faculty member and assigned a credit value. Course Credit by Examination allows you to study or review a given subject on your own. You are tested on the subject within six months of enrollment. A letter grade is assigned and credit awarded based on your performance on the examination. Further information on Experiential Learning and Course Credit by Examination is available from the Office of Independent and Distance Learning Programs, telephone 740-593-2910 or 800-444-2910. (See also the Office of Lifelong Learning section of this catalog.)

Credit for Armed Forces Courses. Some courses provided by the armed forces may earn college credit. The Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experience in the Armed Services, published by the American Council on Education, is used to determine what credit might be granted. Blanket credit is not granted for military service, nor is credit granted for the Military Occupation Specialty (MOS). Veterans who served after October 1, 1981, must submit official documentation for credit consideration. Army veterans must submit an AARTS transcript; Marine Corp and Navy veterans must submit a S.M.A.R.T. transcript, Coast Guard veterans must submit a Coast Guard transcript. For additional information, or for instructions for personnel who served before October 1, 1981, contact Undergraduate Admissions, 740-593-4110.

Credit for Training Programs Some courses offered by business and professional organizations are considered the equivalent of college courses, and you may receive transfer credit, subject to department or school approval, by presenting transcripts or certificates of completion from the training program. The National Guide to Educational Credit for Training Programs, published by the American Council on Education, is used to determine what credit can be granted. Contact Undergraduate Admissions for further information.

Transferring Credit

All college-level credit earned with a grade of C- or higher at a regionally accredited institution is accepted as transfer credit at Ohio University. The manner in which this credit will apply to graduation requirements is up to the College in which you may major. Remedial courses and English courses taught in non-Anglophone countries are not transferable. Credit is only awarded after admission to the University as a degree-seeking student and upon receipt of official transcripts.

Normally, courses in which you have earned a grade below C- are not acceptable for transfer. However, a course with a D grade will transfer if it meets two conditions: if the course was a specific prerequisite (as stated in the previous school's catalog) for a later course that you took in the same department, and if you earned a grade of C- or better in that later course. If you have coursework that meets these conditions, contact the Undergraduate Admissions to arrange to receive credit. Grades of D will also transfer if you have completed an Associate of Arts or an Associate of Science degree at a regionally accredited, Ohio post-secondary institution.

All grades for transfer credit are converted on your academic record to either a T grade symbol (if credit has been equated to a specific Ohio University course) or a U symbol (if credit has not been equated.) The number of transferable quarter hours of credit is recorded on the academic record, but the grades you earned are not recorded. As a result, if you are a transfer student, you enter Ohio University with no g.p.a. on your academic record. However, your overall g.p.a. earned at other institutions may still be considered part of the criteria for admission into certain programs.

Shortly after you have been accepted for admission as a transfer student, Undergraduate Admissions will send a tentative transfer credit evaluation report.

Institutional Transfer. The Ohio Board of Regents, following the directive of the Ohio General Assembly, developed a statewide policy to facilitate students' ability to transfer credits from one Ohio public college or university to another in order to avoid duplication of course requirements. Since independent colleges and universities in Ohio may or may not be participating in the transfer policy, students interested in transferring to independent institutions are encouraged to check with the college or university of their choice regarding transfer agreements.

The Transfer Module. The Ohio Board of Regents' Transfer and Articulation Policy established the Transfer Module, which is a subset or entire set of a college or university's general education program. Transfer Module consists of 54 to 60 quarter hours (or 36 to 40 semester hours) of courses in the following areas: English, mathematics, arts and humanities, social and behavorial sciences, natural and physical sciences, and interdisciplinary study.

A Transfer Module completed at one college or university will automatically meet the requirements of the Transfer Module at another college or university once the student is admitted. Students may be required, however, to meet additional general education requirements at the institution to which they transfer. For example, a student who completes the Transfer Module at Institution 5 (sending institution) and then transfer to Institution R (receiving institution) is said to have completed the Transfer Module portion of Institution R's general education program. Institution R, however, may require additional general education courses beyond the Transfer Module.

Since many degree programs require specific courses that may be taken as a part of the general eduction or Transfer Module program at an institution, students are encouraged to meet with an academic advisor at the institution to which they plan to transfer early in their academic career For example, students who will be majoring in an of the majors in the College of Business Administration at the receiving institution should take Economics 201, 202, and 203 (or equivalent course at another institution) rather than the Economics 200 course listed as a part of the Transfer Module. Because of specific major requirements such as these, early identification of a student's intended major is encouraged. Advisors at the institution to which a student wishes to transfer should be consulted regarding Transfer Module and general education courses and any specific program requirements that can be completed before transfer.

Conditions for Transfer Admission

The following guidelines govern transfer module admission:

  1. The policy encourages receiving institutions to give preferential consideration for admission to students who complete the Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree with a cumulative grade point of 2.0 or better for all previous college level courses.

  2. The policy encourages receiving institutions to give preferential treatment to students who have not earned an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree but have earned 60 semester hours or 90 quarter hours with a cumulative grade point of 2.0 or better for all previous college level courses.

  3. The policy further encourages that students who have not earned an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree or who have not earned 60 semester hours or 90 quarter hours with a cumulative grade point of 2.0 or better for all previous college level courses are eligible for admission as transfer students on a competitive basis.

Acceptance of Transfer Credit.

  1. Students who have completed the Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree with a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or better will receive transfer credit for all college level courses in which a grade D or better has been earned.

  2. Students who have not earned an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree will receive transfer credit for all college level courses in which a grade of D or better has been earned.

Admisison to a given institution, however, does not guarantee that a transfer student will be automiatically admitted to all majors, minors, or fields of concentration at the institution. Once admitted, transfer students will be subject to the same regulations governing applicability of catalog requirements as all other students. Furthermore, transfer student shall be accorded the same class standing and other privileges as all other students on the basis of the number of credits earned. All residency requirements must be successully completed at the receiving institution prior to the granting of a degree.

Responsibilities of Students. In order to facilitate transfer with maximum applicability of transfer credit, prospective transfer students should plan a course of study that will meet the requirements of a degree program at the receiving institution. Specifically, students should identify early in their collegiate studies an institution and major to which they desire to transfer. Furthermore, students should determine if there are language requirements or any special course requirements that that can be met during the freshman or sophomore year. This will enable students to plan and pursue a course of study that will articulate with the receiving institution's major. Students are encouraged to seek further information regarding transfer from both their advisor and the college of university to which they plan to tranfer.

Appeals Process. A student disagreeing with the application of transfer credit by the receiving institution shall be informed of the right to appeal the decision and of the process for filing the appeal. Each institution shall make available to students the apeal process for that specific college or university. If a transfer student's appeal is denied by the institution after all appeal levels within the institution shall advise the student in writing of the availability and process of appeal to the state-level Articulation and Transfer Appeals Review Committee shall review and recommend to institutions the resolutions of individual cases of appeal from trnsfer students who have exhausted all local appeal mechanism concerning applicability of transfer credits at receiving institutions.

Transfer Module Recommendations for Transferring to Ohio University. If you are planing to transfer from Ohio University to another institution, the following general guidelines should be followed in selecting courses to fulfill the 54-60 quarter hours required by the transfer module:

Transferring Technical College Credit. If you have completed an associate's degree from a Board of Regents--approved Ohio college, you will be able to transfer credit for all the general education coursework in which you earned a grade of C- or better. Most programs will also allow a limited amount of credit for technical courses to be applied as elective credit toward graduation requirements.

Enrollment Medical Requirements

There are no specific medical requirements to fulfill before entering the University--for example, you are not required to have a physical examination. However, some Colleges have specific medical requirements for students pursuing certain majors.

If you are a newly enrolled international student or an international student returning after an absence of two or more years, you will need to take a tuberculosis skin test through the Student Health Service on campus.

The University requires full-time students to have major medical insurance and offers an affordable plan for students and their dependents. Information on the insurance plan is included with your registration materials.

Application Deadlines

Although you may enroll for any quarter, we recommend that you enter fall quarter, if possible, because many course sequences begin in the fall.


If you are a high school senior applying for fall quarter, we recommend that you apply for admission to Ohio University no later than December or January of your senior year, but you may apply any time after completing your junior year. Applications for other terms are accepted up to one month before the quarter or term begins.

You should arrange to take the SAT I and/or ACT by December of your senior year so that scores can be submitted with your application materials.

Currently, certain programs, including Honors Tutorial College, the School of Journalism, and the School of Visual Communication have earlier deadlines. Contact Undergraduate Admissions or refer to the current Application for Admission for further details.

Some of Ohio University's more competitive and popular programs meet their enrollment targets and close admission before the published deadlines. The University reserves the right to close admission to any of its programs without advance notice.
