Applying to OPIE

  • Do you want to study English?

If you want to study English only, you should apply for “OPIE Only” student status. The only entry requirement is that you have a high school diploma. “OPIE Only” student status is best for students who are not interested in a degree program at Ohio University or who are unsure of the program they would like to enter.

“OPIE Only” programs can be arranged for semesters or four-week sessions throughout the year. You may register for one or multiple four-week sessions depending upon your arrival date.

Four-week programs are intended for groups of students or students who want to study English during vacation.  They are not intended for students who are preparing for admission to Ohio University. It is not possible to complete or exit the OPIE program based on four weeks of study.

Students who are planning to gain admission to Ohio University should choose to study on the semester calendar.
