Student Survival Manual
Welcome to the Heritage College
Welcome to the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine Student Survival Manual! This great resource will provide you with information on everything from where to park your bicycle to academic policies governed by the Committee on Student Progress. It is an invaluable reference on the wide variety of services and opportunities available, whatever your needs or ambitions.
The Student Survival Manual is essentially required reading. It contains the honor code and other important college and campus policies — the rules by which we govern our lives. It is each student’s responsibility to be familiar with the contents of the Student Survival Manual. Those new to Heritage College should read it with care. Returning students should also study this handbook, both to review its contents and also to discover what is new. We hope that these pages will not only inform but also encourage and inspire readers to explore college policies fully and to recognize and celebrate both the privileges and the responsibilities that we all share as members of this learning community.
Finally, it is important to note that Heritage College students also are subject to Ohio University policies. University policies affecting students are summarized in the Ohio University Student Handbook.
