Providing access to "the nation's best transformative learning community" for students throughout southeastern Ohio and beyond, that's the regional campus mission. Five campuses and two satellite centers help meet that mission.
Students choose to study at a regional campus for a variety of reasons. Many are working full or part-time to help defray college costs or working to improve their job opportunities, some are single parents or have other obligations that tie them to their communities, while others are cost conscious or simply want to live at home while earning their degree.
OHIO's regional campus students experience a vibrant, student-centered learning environment. Each campus has its own character, but all provide the excellence in education that is an Ohio University tradition.
Regional campus students have options. Some choose credit or noncredit courses to hone their workforce skills, but most choose to pursue one of the 15 Ohio University baccalaureate degrees or 18 associate degrees that can be completed at the regional campuses or to begin their studies at a regional campus before relocating to the Athens campus to complete their degree programs.
The campuses' open admissions policy allows Ohio high school graduates to be admitted. Having no residence halls, the campuses are commuter-friendly. The campuses also participate in opportunities to earn college credit while still in high school.
Ohio University’s regional campuses have been serving students throughout Southeastern Ohio for 70 years.
46% of the students attending a regional campus in Fall 2016 are first generation college students.
Regional campus students can begin one of over 250 majors or can complete one of 18 associate degrees or 15 bachelor degrees.
