Students who are conditionally admitted to Ohio University are given an Institutional TOEFL exam (ITP) and writing or composition test upon arrival. Students are eligible to begin full-time academic study if they score 525 (Business students: 550) or above with a writing score of 5 or above. If scores are lower, students are placed into either OPIE’s Full-time English Program or our Bridge Program, which includes English classes and academic classes.
These students may then transition into full-time academic study by
• successfully completing* the sequence of OPIE classes
• reaching the required scores on English proficiency tests.
*Successful completion means either initially complete OPIE’s 8-hour level Bridge Program with a B- or higher (College of Business students must earn an A- or higher)
Repeat OPIE’s 8-hour level with a grade of C or higher (College of Business students must earn a B- or higher).
