Admission to The Ohio State University after High School

The Ohio State Academy Program is designed for talented high school students wishing to take college courses while still in high school.

  • Admission to the Academy Program does not imply or guarantee admission to the Columbus campus of The Ohio State University as a degree-seeking student.
  • An Academy participant who later desires admission to Ohio State's Columbus campus as a degree-seeking student must complete a separate application and participate in a competitive admission process. 

  • A student applying for freshman admission to the Columbus campus, after the completion of College Credit Plus coursework at any Ohio State campus, who is not admitted to Columbus must still complete 30 credit hours post-high school graduation at Ohio State ATI or an Ohio State regional campus, before he or she can transition to the Columbus campus. Credit hours earned through College Credit Plus are not included in the required 30 hours.

  • The grade-point average earned at any campus of Ohio State through the College Credit Plus program will follow the student if he or she later enrolls at Ohio State as a degree-seeking student.

  • The grade-point average earned at any college or university through College Credit Plus will be included in the admission decision if a student later transfers to Ohio State after attending another institution.
