Thank you for your interest in Ohio University Southern. As a regional campus of the first university established within the State of Ohio and the Northwest Territory of the United States, the Southern Campus is proud of the quality, value, and convenience of the educational experiences we provide to our students.
From its humble beginnings in 1956 of offering two-year evening courses for cadet teachers in 1956 at Ironton High School to having more than 30 degree and certificate programs of learning, Ohio University Southern remains true to its mission of providing quality higher education opportunities for those whose commitments to jobs and families inspire them to remain within their communities while attending college.

The Southern Campus of Ohio University is as unique as the individuals who choose to further their education here. Providing the education and service associated with a nationally recognized research educational institution, while maintaining the individual attention and personal touch associated with a small-campus atmosphere sets us apart.

We are committed to serving the needs of a diverse student population. Whether you come to us directly from high school, as an adult returning to the classroom after many years in the work force, or as a first-time adult student, course subjects and schedules at Ohio University Southern are designed to meet the needs of our broad student population.

Additionally, student activities reflect the various interests of our campus community. Athletic teams, honor societies, and student organizations are just a sample of what you will find at Ohio University Southern, giving everyone a chance to become involved in something of interest.

Student involvement extends beyond the campus to include our local communities and beyond. Through practical community service projects and service learning courses, students develop a comprehensive understanding of community, thereby recognizing the impact of their efforts.

Ohio University Southern provides a world of opportunities!  We encourage you to Imagine Your Possibilities and enroll today.
