Re-enrolling Students

Re-enrolling Students General Information

Any student, including Veterans and U.S. Armed Forces members, may return to Ohio University at the same level and same academic program provided they had not been academically dismissed. A Veteran or U.S. Armed Forces member who may be temporarily unable to attend classes, or have to suspend their studies due to service requirements, may contact the Veterans and Military Student Services Center for assistance to work with faculty members within the current semester to decide the best course of action. Once the Veteran or U.S. Armed Forces member is able to return to classes they will be reinstated into the same program. If the academic program is no longer offered, Ohio University will work with the student to select an alternate program.

Undergraduate Information

Prior to re-enrollment

  • Online Account: In order to register for classes, you will need access to your OHIO ID and password. If you do not have access to this, or you do not know what it is, visit the Information Technology website or contact the OIT Service Desk at 740.593.1222.
  • Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA): To combat-the ever-increasing cyber attacks aimed at higher education, OIT now offers Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for students. This is an added verification step to your OHIO login, making it harder for a cyber criminal to use a lost or stolen password to access your account; keeping your personal and financial data protected. MFA will be required for all student accessing the MyOHIO Student Center; setting this up in advance could save some time when you need to register for classes.
  • Holds: You will register for classes by accessing My OHIO Student Center using your OHIO ID and password. First, verify whether you have a priority registration advising hold by looking in the Holds box on the right of the screen. If you have this hold, your academic advisor, your regional campus student services office, or the Allen Student Advising Center must release this hold before you can register for classes. For additional information regarding holds, contact the Office of the University Registrar, 1st floor Chubb Hall, 740.593.4191, or the Allen Student Advising Center, 417 Baker Center, 740.566.8888.
  • Enrollment Appointment Time: Your enrollment appointment time (the time you can begin registering) can be found in the Enrollment Dates box in the My OHIO Student Center. If no appointment time displays, then you are eligible to register after contacting your academic advisor.
  • Advising: If you plan to remain in your current major, meet with your academic advisor (found in the Advisor box in the My OHIO Student Center ) for academic advising and to have your Priority Registration Advising hold lifted. If you do not want to remain in your current major, meet with an advisor at the Allen Student Advising Center, 417 Baker Center, 740.566.8888, for academic advising and assistance in having your Priority Registration Advising hold lifted.
  • Personal Information: Review your emergency contact, home and mailing addresses, and phone numbers in the My OHIO Student Center to ensure the information is accurate.
  • Transfer Credit: If you have attended any other schools since your last Ohio University enrollment, send transcripts from those schools to the Undergraduate Admissions Office, 120 Chubb Hall, Athens OH 45701, 740.593.4100, admissions@ohio.edu.
  • On-Campus Housing: If you need on-campus housing or are required to live on campus, contact Residential Housing, 111 S. Green Drive, 740.593.4090.
