New Student Resources
Before the First Day of Class
A few important steps will help get you ready for your educational journey with OHIO Online after you are admitted as a student. Make sure you complete these steps before the first day of class:
Your advisor will send you welcome information via email, which includes instructions for how to register for courses. You also will receive a Degree Audit Reporting System (DARS) report, showing your official transfer credit and course requirements, after your transfer credit has been fully evaluated and processed.
Note: Online nursing students can find their academic advisor in the Nursing Knowledge Center.
Most Ohio University courses require textbooks and/or other materials. Text and materials requirements for each course are listed in the course offerings. MBS Direct is OHIO's official online bookstore. You may purchase required materials elsewhere, as long as you purchase the correct edition required for your course.
