Admission requirements for concurrent students


To be admitted as a concurrent student, you must meet one of the following requirements:

Requirement Minimum Score
ACT/SAT 24/1160*
Pre-ACT (10th Grade)/PSAT 24/1160*
GPA and Class Rank 3.0 (unweighted) and top 33.3% of class 


*Due to COVID-19, admission to OSU is test optional for the spring and fall 2021 entering classes. Students can indicate if they have been unable to take an ACT or SAT test due to COVID-19 on their application for admission. Students can apply with only a high school transcript and may be considered for admission by exception for the fall and spring 2021 semesters. Students who apply without a test score need to submit essays and fill out the leadership resume as part of their completed application for admission.


Home study or Unaccredited High Schools: Due to the impact of COVID-19, students may be considered for admission to OSU without providing a test score for the fall and spring 2021 semesters but should submit all available and future test scores. Graduates must satisfy the curricular requirements. Homeschooled students and students from unaccredited high schools must have completed enough high school coursework to be equivalent to an individual classified as a junior or senior at an accredited high school.


National ACT and SAT testing is preferred for concurrent student admission. One OSU residual ACT per year may be used for concurrent admission.
