The campus-change process

1. Meet the minimum requirements

Students can change to the Columbus campus with a minimum of 30 earned hours (earned after high school graduation) and at least a 2.0 cumulative Ohio State GPA. This excludes credits earned from testing (e.g. advanced placement testing or Ohio State foreign language testing).
Academic units on the Columbus campus may have additional requirements.

2. Request a campus-change from your current campus

Select your campus below to start the process:

Newark to Columbus

Lima to Columbus

Mansfield to Columbus

Marion to Columbus

ATI in Wooster to Columbus

3. Register for Columbus campus classes

Registering for classes at the Columbus campus is done through Buckeye Link and should happen as soon as your enrollment appointment opens. Work with your advisor on the regional campus if you have questions, but registering for classes on the Columbus campus is very similar to registering on regional campuses. One exception may be understanding how the lecture/recitation pairings work (read about this under What to expect on the Columbus campus).
