Commitment to non-discrimination
Ohio University operates on a holistic, selective review and looks for evidence of academic preparation when reviewing applications for admission. Additionally, because the School of Music considers artistic talent in the review process, students pursuing certain academic programs must audition, interview, and/or submit additional materials for admission and scholarship consideration. Ohio University and the School of Music do not discriminate against any applicants because of race, color, religion, age, national origin, ethnicity, national ancestry, sex, pregnancy, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, military service or veteran status, mental or physical disability, or genetic information.
