Sign up for your orientation session

When signing up for your session, you will choose an available date and also indicate if any family members or guests intend to participate in BSO with you.

Students are required to participate in all sessions that are part of the program in order to register for classes at orientation, so be sure to clear your schedule and plan to fully participate in all elements of the program.

You'll need your OHIO email address and password to access the form below. If you haven't already activated your OHIO ID and campus email address, follow the instructions on the account activation website.

First-year students are eligible to sign up for their specific orientation session after they have completed and been cleared through the Required Pre-enrollment Discipline and Criminal History Review process. Students must also complete their housing contract and pay their deposit or completed a commuter contract (if eligible). The automated process for housing contracts can take up to 24 hours from the time the housing deposit is received for a student to be able to sign up for orientation.  Those students submitting commuter contracts may need to wait up to 24 hours after receiving confirmation of commuter status approval to be able to sign up. 

Transfer students are eligible to sign up for their orientation session once they have officially been admitted to Ohio University and have been cleared through the Required Pre-enrollment Discipline and Criminal History Review process.
