School Counselors


Welcome! Ohio University Southern Undergraduate Admissions values the role that school counselors play in the college search and admission processes.

Our goal is to be as helpful as possible to you and your students. For your convenience, below are links to tools and information about admissions, degree offerings, applications, and the College Credit Plus Program.

Admission Information

OU offers selected baccalaureate and associate's degree students can earn entirely from the Ironton campus.

Students may also choose from 250 majors and programs offered at the OU Athens campus.

Many students begin the first two years of their college experience at OUS by taking General Education classes at the Ironton or Proctorville locations before relocating to the Athens campus to complete their degree requirements.

If students are undecided, they have many choices to explore and dedicated advising services to help them find the path that's right for them.

Applicants who have received home-schooling instruction are encouraged to contact Student Services for admission requirements.
