Welcome New Buckeyes
Ohio State's University Orientation will be your first real taste of life as a Buckeye. Orientation will help you begin to feel at home
on the Columbus campus and help you become familiar with the wide range of academic opportunities available at Ohio State.
Orientation information varies between freshman and transfer students and is specific for the term in which you are enrolling. Please choose
links above that are appropriate for you. Non-traditional freshmen (students ages 21 years and above) are invited to attend transfer programs.
This site provides orientation information for domestic students attending the Columbus campus. To learn about orientation for international
students, go to oia.osu.edu/pre-arrival-and-orientation/undergraduate-pre-arrival/autumn-semester.html. Regional campus students should
contact their regional campus for orientation information.
