Welcome to the Bobcat Family!

Welcome to the resource page for parents and families of OHIO students! Here, you will find links to some of the most commonly needed information -- whether it's scheduling a campus visit for a prospective student, addressing mail to a student living in one of our residence halls, tuition payment, or options for students interested in taking summer classes.

At OHIO, your student's future is our top priority. Beginning with student orientation and extending all the way through commencement, our faculty and staff strive to help students get the most from their Ohio University experience and prepare them for their futures as professionals in a complex, interconnected world. With the encouragement of their professors, a growing number of our students are competing for national awards, such as prestigious Fulbright and Goldwater honors.
