Congratulations on your admission to Ohio State. In-person visits are on hold until it is safe to host visitors, but there are still lots of ways to learn about Ohio State. We're excited to connect with you!
Scroll on for events and resources, including:
Whether you're still deciding where you're headed in the fall or just curious about campus life, our live events are a great way to get to know Ohio State's Columbus campus and get your questions answered. Parents and family are welcome to join student sessions — or check to see if we're holding one just for parents and family.
Check back: We'll be adding new sessions through the spring!
TO REGISTER YOU'LL NEED your OSUID and Ohio State username, found on your letter of admission. If you haven't activated your username and created a password, do it now. (It's worth taking this extra step — it lets you register for events and set up BuckeyeMail, which is where we'll send all sorts of important Buckeye business.)
ABOUT ACCESSIBILITY: Please reach out if you need assistance.
Our colleges and schools have collected resources for their admitted students — which may include academic overviews, live information sessions and virtual tours. We don't have all colleges and schools listed yet, so check back and watch for communications from your college or school. (If you're not sure which college or school your major is in, look it up at majors.osu.edu.)
February 1 is the priority deadline for FAFSA and our ScholarshipUniverse application. This checklist has details. Need some help? Head to YouTube for FAFSA Overview and Tips, Introducing ScholarshipUniverse and Alumni Scholarships.
