The OHIO experience
The Ohio University experience is unique and transformative—not only for students, but for the entire southeast region of the state. With nearly 30,000 students enrolled across seven regional campuses and the residential campus in Athens, the University is recognized as one of the top character-building institutions in the country.
OHIO is rated a High Research Activity Institution by the Carnegie Foundation, and researchers hold more than 250 patents worldwide. The Chronicle of Higher Education lists OHIO among the top producers of Fulbright Scholars in the nation, and currently the University ranks among the top in the state for nationally competitive awards won by its students.
Applying to The Ohio University Graduate College
The Ohio University Graduate College works with each graduate program to process and review your application. You'll submit all application materials to the Graduate College, where your materials are gathered together for an academic program. Once you've found the graduate program to help you meet your personal and professional goals, you should review its application requirements and deadlines. Gather the necessary documents which may include licenses, letters of recommendation, a résumé, and a personal statement or statement of professional goals. You'll also need to request an official transcript from all the universities you've previously attended (Ohio University graduates don't need to do this).
Admisison requirements and deadlines vary by program, so be sure you have confirmed the information you need to supply to complete the application. Each program handles application reviews differently, but generally there is a committee of faculty who review applications. Recommendations are then forwarded to the Graduate College for final approval and processing. If you have questions about the application process, please reach out to the Graduate College at email@example.com. Other important things of note:
• Official test scores must be reported to Ohio University, code 1593.
• Department-based funding opportunities (graduate appointments) also vary by program, so review your program of interests website for details
• Most materials can be uploaded directly by the applicant through the online application. Documents that can't be submitted through the application system, including official transcripts and test scores, should be sent to the Graduate College at:
