Admitted first-years

Ohio Stadium crowd

Welcome, admitted first-years!

If you're a high school student who's been admitted to Ohio State, yay for you! We're excited to show you and your family everything Ohio State can offer you — as well as make sure you get answers to your questions and know your next steps. These tours and online events — often highlighting the voice of current students — are designed for you.

General visit information

All guests should read the Planning your visit FAQs before registering.

  • All visitors must have a confirmed reservation.
    We aren't able to accommodate walk-ins or offer waitlists. If you'd like to visit campus without a reservation, a self-guided tour is available.
  • Two guests are permitted to visit with each student.
    If a family has multiple prospective students (i.e., siblings), each student can bring two guests. Each student should register separately.
  • If you have a disability, you may experience difficulty registering.
    Please contact visitday@osu.edu or 614-292-3980 for assistance. A staff member will assist you within 24 business hours.
New visit opportunities are posted on the first of every month.

Events for admitted students are offered January through mid-May.
