Advising and Registration

Attending an Advising & Registration Session

In order to sign up for an Advising & Registration Session, you must be admitted to the University and have activated your OHIO ID. Advising & Registration sessions are designed to acquaint new students with the campus; familiarize themselves with admissions, registration, and financial aid policies and procedures; meet with academic advisors to plan their schedules, and spend time with Chillicothe Campus Faculty discussing how they can best prepare for the first day of classes.

Activate your OHIO ID

Activate your OHIO ID, create a password, and set up account rescue information online. You will need your PID number and birthdate for the activation process. You can find your PID number on the acknowledgment letter you received when you first applied for admission, as well as in your email.

Your OHIO ID will be used to register for classes, check account balances, view financial aid, and much more. If you experience technical difficulty accessing, please contact the Athens Service Desk at 740.593.1222 or the Chillicothe Help Desk at 740.774.7212.
