Ohio University

How to Apply

If you are not currently enrolled at Ohio University, you will need to complete an application for admission through the Office of Admissions, 120 Chubb Hall, or through a student services office at one of the regional campuses, in addition to the Bachelor of Criminal Justice Degree Program Application Form.

To enter the Criminal Justice program, you must complete an online application.

The B.C.J. major is available on all campuses, including online through Ohio University's eCampus. Please note that nearly all B.C.J. majors will be required to complete online coursework.

Completion of an associate degree in a related technical field (criminal justice, paralegal, human services, law enforcement, corrections, police science, police administration, security/safety) is necessary for you to qualify for admission.

If you are currently enrolled at Ohio University (either in Athens or at a regional campus), you will need only to complete the Bachelor of Criminal Justice Degree Program Application Form, available from University College, 140 Chubb Hall, or from any regional campus student services office. You may also fill out the application online.

The above application link is the newest application for current OHIO students to declare B.C.J. or Pre-B.C.J. (there is no paper application).
