print entire profile



Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Recent high school graduates or transfer students should have a minimum composite score of 24 ACT and/or 1100 SAT, a good high school academic record that includes 4 years of mathematics, 4 years of English, and 1 year each of physics and chemistry. Students with a strong background in mathematics and science may be admitted with one unit of chemistry or physics, with the missing area to be completed during the first year.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Once admitted to the College, the student may select any major.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

Requirements are the same as for U.S. citizens and residents. International applicants are required to take an English placement test when they arrive on campus to determine if they need additional English instruction in the Ohio Program of Intensive English (OPIE). OPIE students may have to delay registering for regular courses until English skills have improved to ensure success in the classroom.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Same as for residents.

Residency Requirements

Students must earn a minimum of 30 semester credit hours while enrolled at Ohio University, and you must earn a minimum of 50 percent of coursework taken to fulfill your major concentration in residence with resident credit as defined above.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

For students with fewer than 20 semester hours of other University credit, freshman guidelines apply. For students with more than 20 semester hours of credit from a regionally accredited institution, a minimum g.p.a of 2.5 out of 4.0 is required to transfer to Ohio University. Most transfer students are not admitted directly to the Russ College of Engineering and Technology; they must first demonstrate proficiency at math and science courses at Ohio University.
