Exit Survey and Checklist
We understand that some students choose to attend a different institution to complete their college degree or pursue other opportunities.
- If you are withdrawing from OHIO we would like to understand why and assist you with your transition.
- If you would like to stay at OHIO but need guidance to make that possible, please call 740.566.8888 to schedule an appointment with an Academic Advisor.
- If you leave and would like to re-enroll in a future semester, we are happy to assist you. Ten percent of students who leave Ohio University eventually return.
Before leaving Ohio University, please:
Complete an Exit Survey to share your experiences and future plans with us.
Review the Exit Checklist to be sure you have completed all the necessary steps for your transition.
An Academic Advisor will review your survey responses, offer assistance for any concerns raised by your survey, and send information about your free transcript waiver.
Please complete the Exit Survey if:
- You plan to transfer to another institution next academic year
- You plan to take a break from school
Please do not complete the Exit Survey if:
