Live-On Policy

Students who meet the requirement for the live-on policy must comply with this process at any time during the academic year they begin their studies at OSU.  Students beginning their studies in the fall term are obligated for Fall, Winter, and Spring terms. In contrast, students beginning their studies in the spring term are obligated to this policy only for the Spring term.

While participation in the FYE, including the residency component, is an integral part of each first-year students’ education, OSU recognizes that exceptions to the residency requirement may be appropriate in certain circumstances.
