Blended ProgramS



*The Patton College offers a variety of programs at Ohio University regional campuses and eCampus. All cohort programs and the courses therein are contingent on a specified minimum enrollment of students. Program start dates may be postponed if the minimum enrollment is not reached. This decision will be made no fewer than 30 days prior to the advertised start date.

*In order to better serve our students, a new policy will take effect beginning with the Fall 2017 Semester. Candidates seeking licensure within eighteen (18) months of successfully completing an educator preparation program at Ohio University will be recommended for licensure if they apply within that timeframe to the Ohio Department of Education. If application for licensure is made after eighteen (18) months to the Ohio Department of Education, candidates will be required to meet with their program coordinator for consultation regarding any additional state and/or program requirements they need to complete. Following this consultation and the satisfaction of any additionally identified requirements, recommendation by Ohio University will be granted on a case-by-case basis. This applies to all candidates including past graduates who have not earned the license for which they were prepared.

State Authorization Information

All programs that lead to licensure and certification, your programs should have a disclosure that alerts students to the requirements set forth by the licensing boards, in Ohio and most importantly out-of-state. These disclosures should be seen included in your webpages along with written correspondence. If you have any questions on what this disclosure should look like, please contact Kia Stone for examples. This is mandatory for all online programs and programs that offer field experiences out-of-state.
