What do I need to do to return to Ohio University after taking off a term or more?
You are considered to be a "re-enrolling student" if you take a fall or spring term off, and then decide to return to Ohio University. Taking the summer off does not make you a re-enrolling student.
Re-enrolling students should follow the procedures listed here, which depend on the date of the most recent term that you did register for classes.
How do I update my address and/or phone number?
International students with F-1 or J-1 visa status are required to use the online address service to update addresses.
What is a hold and how do I clear it?
Some students may find that they are prevented from registering, receiving their diploma, transcript, or receiving other University services because a hold has been placed on their academic record. Holds are placed when students fail to meet financial or other obligations to the university.
To have a hold released, the student must contact the office which placed the hold and fulfill their obligation.

How do I protect my privacy?
DIRECTORY INFORMATION DEADLINE
Students who do not want their directory/public information released to third parties or students who do not want to be listed in the Ohio University online people search must complete the Ohio University Confidentiality Status form (available HERE ).
It should be understood that by exercising the option for non-disclosure of directory/public information, enrollment/degree verification for employment may be performed only with a signed consent form from the student. Also, the student will not be listed in the graduation commencement program. Confidentiality status is permanent unless removed by written request from the student.
How do I calculate my grade point average?
A student's grade point average is determined by dividing the total number of grade points earned by the total number of hours of credit attempted. For example, if a student earned a C (2.0) and a B (3.0) in each of two three-hour courses, first multiply the number of hours in each course by the grade point value for that grade (3 x 2 = 6 and 3 x 3 = 9) and add the grade points for each course together to find the total number of grade points (15). Then add the number of hours attempted (3 + 3 = 6) and divide the total number of grade points by the total hours attempted (15/6 = 2.5). The student's GPA after completing the two classes would be 2.5. A student's GPA is figured only on credit hours attempted--courses for which the student receives letter grades (A-F), FN (failure, never attended), or FS (failure, stopped attending). FN and FS have the same value as an F. Grades of P (pass) and CR (credit) represent hours earned but are not used to calculate the GPA.
How do individuals update their legal name?
Students are required to provide their legal names on their applications for admission. After enrollment, students may process official name changes or corrections with the Office of the University Registrar. A change of legal name requires an official document or court order verifying the correct information at the time the request is made. One of the following documents may be submitted for verification of the legal name change:
When only one word is provided for the legal name, the information will be stored in a system's last name field with the standardized designation of 'FNU' (first name unknown) stored in the first name field.
Faculty and Staff should contact Human Resources to update their legal names.
