Fall 2021 Applicants:
Applications are currently available for freshmen, transfers and post-bacc students. Deadlines and notification dates are posted below. Note that the first Fall 2021 admission decisions will not be released until December 2020, but applicants are strongly encouraged to explore OSU (virtually, of course) and preparing to submit their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) starting in October so that we may provide scholarship awards and financial aid estimates to students when they are admitted.
Winter, Spring and Summer Term Applicants:
Students applying for winter, spring, or summer terms must apply and submit all required documents before the posted deadlines below to ensure your application can be reviewed in sufficient time before the term starts. Admission application fees will not be refunded due to late arrival of required materials. Students are strongly urged to complete their application process well in advance of posted deadlines in order to get through the subsequent steps in the process.
Regardless of which term you are applying for, the scholarship consideration deadline is February 1 before the start of the school year in which you plan to enter.
New freshman/first-year students applying for summer term will be evaluated for admission using the same criteria and processes as fall applicants.
Post-Bacc Applicants (all terms):
Post-bacc applicants (students who have earned a bachelor’s degree and who are applying to pursue another at OSU), should consult our Post-Bacc deadlines page for info on admission deadlines and processes.
