Online orientation How it works

For the safety of our communities during the COVID-19 pandemic, orientation programs for all students entering in summer or autumn 2021 terms will be delivered online.

Although an online orientation program isn’t exactly how we wanted to introduce the incoming class to Ohio State, we're as excited as ever to welcome our newest Buckeyes to the university!

Student orientation programs will be delivered via CarmenCanvas and cover scheduling for courses and other academic preparations, plus other business students should complete before their first term at Ohio State. We'll send details on accessing their program to students' BuckeyeMail accounts.

Supplemental resources

Beyond what's covered in the orientation program, both students and their families can find supplemental resources on this site that may be especially helpful after orientation.
