Are you a transfer student?
Domestic students who have already graduated from high school, and have 36 transferable-quarter hours (24 semester) from one or more regionally accredited colleges or universities, are considered to be transfer students and do not need to provide OSU with test scores and/or high school transcripts*.
*If you have completed one or more years of a foreign language in high school, you will need to send us an official copy of your final high school transcript (containing a graduation date) if you would like to use it towards OSU’s foreign language admissions/graduation requirement.
Applicants who have already graduated high school or recieved a GED and have earned fewer than 36 transferable quarter college credits (24 semester credits) will be reviewed for admissibility based on BOTH high school work or GED scores, and any transferable coursework. See First-Year Student Admissions Requirements for more info on how high school work is considered. Transfer requirements are below.
If you are an international student, see International Student Requirements.
What we need from you: Application Checklist
*Transcripts are considered official if…
- They arrive to OSU in an official-unopened-sealed envelope of the issuing institution.
- They are sent electronically through an approved third-party company, directly from the college or university.
Note: OSU does not accept transcripts or links to transcripts sent through email.
Please note that meeting the minimum admissions requirements and/or an individual’s academic performance does not guarantee them admission to the university. Applicants’ experiences, actions, and non-cognitive skills are assessed by way of the Insight Resume. Furthermore, the university may evaluate a person’s behavior and background to determine their ability to maintain the standards of academic and professional conduct expected at OSU.
How will your GPA be computed?
The official policies of OSU regarding academic-record evaluation for purposes of admission include:
How to Apply:

Transfer Credit Articulation:
OSU does not do an official articulation of a student’s transcripts until:
- after they have been admitted to the university (Winter, Spring, and Summer term applicants)
Note: It may take up to four weeks after you pay your ATD (fall term only) or are admitted (all other terms) in order for OSU to articulate your transcripts.
