Information for Future Students

1.  If you are taking OPIE English courses, OPIE will register you at the beginning of the semester.  If you are taking academic courses at Ohio University (undergraduate and graduate), you are responsible for registering online.  More information can be found here.

2. If you decide to withdraw or leave OPIE and/or the University before your classes end, your money may not be refunded.  It is important that you understand the University’s policy and consult the official calendar of deadlines.  To begin the withdrawal process, visit your College office (University College, Chubb Hall for OPIE-only students).  Also make sure to discuss your withdrawal with the Office of International Student and Faculty services.

4.  Ohio University requires that some students live on campus. All Ohio University enrolled students under the age of 23 with fewer than four academic year semesters (fall/spring semesters only) in the residence halls prior to the start of the semester in which they enroll must reside in university-owned housing and participate in the associated mandatory meal plan.  To read more about this requirement, click here.  To arrange on-campus housing, click here.

If you are not required to live on-campus, you may live off-campus.  The Office of Campus Involvement (Baker 255) can help you find off-campus living.  They provide a message board of offerings where you can post as well.

5. All enrolled Ohio University and OPIE students are required to have health insurance. For more detailed information, click here.

6.  At the end of our  Student Handbook, you will find a list of Frequently Asked Questions (and Answers!).  We encourage you to read these.

7.  Waivable fees: All Ohio University students are automatically charged for two optional fees: the Wellbeing Fee (enhances student health care) and the Student Legal Service Fee (provides legal services).  To waive or pass on these fees, you must opt out on your My OHIO Student Center, usually by the end of the third week of the semester.  To read more about these fees, click here.
