The OHIO Guide

The OHIO Guide is an important resource to help navigate the Ohio University system and culture. The guide provides you with essential information concerning available majors and minors and important academic policies and resources that will help you face the complexities of college culture and academic life. 

The guide will help you in the early stages of your college career as you explore the ways you want to engage in the community and carve out a unique and positive pathway to your future.

Faculty & Staff

Because the OHIO Guide is treated as a course on Top Hat, and courses have a maximum number of professors/owners, it was decided to make a copy of the book with anonymous access. Enter as a guest and you'll see the same content as students. 


  • There's, unfortunately, no way for a guest user to access assigned content via the app, as the app requires a login.
  • Users on phones could use the full web interface on a mobile phone by enabling the Show Desktop Version option on their mobile browser, however, the UI may be a difficult to navigate, as it's not designed for a phone.
  • Tablet users could use the full web interface by enabling the Show Desktop Version.
