These are unique times due to COVID-19, but like everyone, we’re adapting and trying to do our part to slow the spread and support one another. We know you’re experiencing a lot of change and uncertainty and may have a lot of questions, so we want to keep you updated on what we’re doing to make your college transition as easy as possible.

Here are the things you need to know:

We are here to help

First and foremost, we’re open and here to help you! While many of our staff are working remotely, we’re still answering students’ questions, processing applications, evaluating transcripts and awarding scholarships. We encourage you to find your admissions counselor and reach out with any questions you might have, or email our office at

Campus Tours

Since we are practicing social distancing, our on-campus tour experience is not available until further notice. We have virtual experiences that you can join from the comfort and safety of your own home. Once our campus tours are available, we want you to visit campus and experience OSU for yourself.

Junior Day

Junior Day, which is scheduled for April 18, will be held online as a virtual event. We are still working through the details for an exciting event. We want high school juniors and parents to continue to register for the event. We’ll send you more information as we get closer to event day.

Adjusted deadlines

To better assist you during this time:
  • We will now accept the July 18 ACT national test for scholarship consideration.
  • We are extending the enrollment deposit deadline to June 1, 2020 (previously May 1, 2020).
  • We are extending the scholarship acceptance deadline to June 1, 2020 (previously May 1, 2020).
  • The Final Scholarship Deadline has been extended to August 14, 2020 (previously July1, 2020).

Orientation and enrollment

Freshmen - At this time, we are still planning to hold summer freshman orientation and enrollment in person, and we encourage you to register for a program if you have not already done so. However, we are continuing to monitor the situation and will send you updates as they are available if we must shift to an online/virtual experience.
Transfers - In light of concerns for the health and safety of our guests and campus community, we are moving some of our transfer orientation programs (April 13, 17, 24 and May 7) to an online format. Please register for the date to enroll for which you qualify based on your earned credit hours and we will send you information on your next steps for enrollment.

University updates

The University has moved all courses for the remainder of the spring semester online and has asked those students who are able to move out of on-campus housing for the rest of the spring semester. This decision was made to protect the health of our entire campus community – students, faculty and staff. We’re working to provide resources to students to help them make this transition.
