Ohio University


Students are encouraged to apply for the OHIO Honors Program (OHP) at the time of application for admission and scholarships. For priority consideration, students applying for Fall 2021 should apply by the January 15 (extended!) early action deadline. Applicants who apply after the early action deadline will be considered on a space-available basis.

All applicants are considered automatically for OHP. Students may also be considered for OHP-designated honors and scholars programs specific to their academic college/major or other criteria. Eligible selected students may be asked to complete a separate supplemental application after they have applied to the University.

Most successful OHP candidates submit:

  • the activities section of the application
  • one essay (a Common Application essay prompt, OHIO's essay prompt, or the essays for the Honors Tutorial College academic programs)
  • one or more letters of recommendation


Questions can be directed to Undergraduate Admissions at admissions@ohio.edu or 740.593.4100.
