Lancaster — Fall semester begins at Ohio University-Lancaster on August 25. Even though that is next month, there is still time to enroll and register for classes.
"We are an open enrollment campus," said enrollment manager Pat Fox. "What that means is that we have no application deadline and accept any applicants who have completed high school or received their GED."
"We are still accepting applications for fall semester," said Lancaster campus admissions representative Nate Thomas. "While there is no deadline, we do have procedures for applicants to follow in order to get aid applications in for the start of fall semester."
First, students interested in attending Ohio University-Lancaster must pick up a paper application or apply online. There is an application fee. The applicant must also provide a final high school transcript or a copy of their GED certificate.
"Ohio University-Lancaster administrators will help guide applicants through the remaining procedures," said Thomas. "We will help them apply for financial aid, schedule placement testing and orientation. We will also arrange a one-on-one meeting with one of our student academic advisers to schedule classes."
Thomas said that many students who attend classes at Ohio University-Lancaster like the smaller campus setting, as well as the personal attention they get from administrators during the application process and professors in the classroom.
