The Ohio International Consortium (OIC) offers additional study abroad programs through other public universities in Ohio. The OIC is not a program provider - rather, it is an agreement that allows students at public Ohio colleges to access study away programs through other public Ohio colleges. 

Visit Ohio International Consortium  for more information about the consortium and see which schools are members. NOTE: The information about the OIC is housed on the University of Toledo's website. 


  • Use your OHIO financial aid and scholarships package.  (Some exceptions may apply.)
  • You receive transfer credit and must complete the Global Experiences Transfer Credit Approval Process before you go.
  • Program length will vary depending on the university and term (short-term and long-term available).

Study Away and COVID-19

During the COVID-19 pandemic, participation in study away and abroad involves real and potential personal, financial, and academic risk. The CDC advises that you should delay travel until you are vaccinated. Note that entry to some countries and participation in local program and free-time activities, including in the U.S., may be severely restricted or potentially unavailable to unvaccinated individuals. Unvaccinated travelers should additionally expect to incur extra expenses and onsite logistical challenges due to onsite testing requirements. For further information, contact

How do I apply?

Prior to applying directly to the program through another public Ohio institution, the Office of Global Opportunities recommends that all students complete mandatory OHIO paperwork for transfer credit programs. By completing the Global Experiences Transfer Credit Approval Process before committing to an experience, students will have a better sense of how the program will affect their progress towards degree completion and their financial aid. 

Please review the suggested application steps on the types of programs - affiliated provider program page.

NOTE: OHIO students participating on another school's study away program should communicate with the host school's study abroad office. There may be additional steps required to apply. Not all programs offered through each school are eligible as a part of the OIC agreement. Please check with the host institution to find out about which programs may be open for outside applications.
