The OHIO 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, OHIO 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 Award-winning students in the nation, and currently the university ranks among the top in the state for nationally competitive awards won by its students.
Graduate and Professional Education
Ohio University offers graduate and professional education. The primary forms of activity are advanced and specialized courses of study, supervised practical experience, and research.
The essential concentration of faculty, material, and space resources dictates that the activity associated with graduate and professional education will be centered on the Athens campus. This activity is not limited to that campus; research and instruction are carried out at various locations.
Applying to The Ohio University Graduate College
The Ohio University Graduate College works together with each graduate program to process and review your application. You submit all application materials to the Graduate College, where your materials are gathered together for the academic program.
Once you have found the graduate program to help you meet your personal and professional goals, you should review the 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 will also need to request an official transcript from all the universities you have attended previously (graduates of Ohio University do not need to do this). Requirements vary by program, so be sure you have confirmed the information you need to supply to complete the application. If you have questions about the application process, please reach out to the Graduate College at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
Department-based funding opportunities (graduate appointments) vary by program. Review the program's website for details.
Programs have different application deadlines, and some programs only admit once a year. Be sure you review the program's website to confirm deadlines and any specific application requirements.
Most application materials can be uploaded directly by the applicant through the online application. Documents that cannot be submitted through the application system, including official transcripts and test scores, should be sent to the Graduate College at:
