For more than 200 years Ohio University has valued access to higher education, and we understand that when you make choices about your educational path today, your dreams and goals, your life circumstances, and your location are among the factors that help guide your decisions. At Ohio University:

  • Get credit for your associate's degree study and build on the education you've completed to earn your bachelor's degree in as few as two years.
  • Take advantage of multiple opportunities to get started quickly. Begin fall, spring, or summer.

If your journey includes a bachelor's degree, you can map your route by way of Ohio University in many ways. Whichever path you choose, your OHIO experience will be built upon the tradition of Ohio University excellence.



Choose flexibility to fit your lifestyle in a convenient pay-per-class model that can be completed without leaving home. Affordable tuition starting at $240 per credit hour ($243 for non-Ohio residents) and flexible payment options. Pursue one of our completion degree programs in a format that allows you to review study materials and submit assignments online anytime/anywhere. The eCampus community brings online courses and student services to your computer, wherever you are.


Want a campus atmosphere while remaining close to home? Decide to attend a regional campus or center for a blend of traditional campus activities with student services serving traditional and non-traditional needs, located in eight Ohio communities: Cambridge, Chillicothe, Ironton, Lancaster, Pickerington, Proctorville, St. Clairsville, and Zanesville. You can choose from several undergraduate degree programs and, while tuition is lower than the Athens Campus, a comprehensive rate is still available for 12 - 20 credit hours.


If you want to create a new home away from home, make it on one of the most welcoming and picturesque campuses in the U.S. Select a full residential campus experience with a broad choice of more than 250 academic programs at undergraduate and graduate levels. The tuition model offers a comprehensive option where you can take from 12 - 20 credit hours at the same cost, and beginning in fall 2015, the OHIO Guarantee™ will enable you to pay a single fixed rate for tuition, room and meal plan, and fees for four years. In addition to classes, you will have opportunities to learn and grow through residential programming, student organizations, NCAA Division I Bobcat athletics, and a variety of cultural activities on the Athens Campus.


No internet connection? That needn't stop you from pursuing a degree from a distance. Print-based education provides flexibility to fit your location circumstances. You review study materials and submit assignments through the postal service from any location in the world. Tuition is based on a convenient pay-per-class model with an affordable per-credit-hour rate. You can get started immediately, as these self-paced courses begin each month and allow you eight months to finish. Limited degree programs are available through print-based study, but these courses can be blended with online education to open up additional opportunities.



Ohio University partners with several community colleges across the region to help you transition more easily to a bachelor's degree study. Transfer of credits is not limited only to those who attended a partner college, but partnerships can streamline the transfer process. An Ohio University representative is available on a regular schedule at each of the partner campuses to meet with you or will connect via phone or e-mail to answer your questions and discuss opportunities.
If you are near any of the college partners' campuses listed, you may contact the community partnership manager directly for an appointment in your area to discuss getting started!
