Per Undergraduate Catalog: Relocating Student
If you are currently attending one of Ohio University's regional campuses and wish to attend the Athens Campus, you are considered a relocating student. Relocation is possible for any semester, though you must have earned at least 12 credit hours of coursework that is not developmental or remedial on the regional campus with a minimum cumulative 2.0 GPA to be eligible for relocation. Students who have earned fewer than 12 credit hours at a regional campus will be subject to Athens Campus admission guidelines. Contact the student services office on your regional campus for additional information.
