How long will it take me to finish this program?
It all depends on which program you are looking to complete. Plan on completing a minimum of two more years at Ohio State, regardless of the amount of transfer credit with which you are admitted.
What courses transfer to Ohio State from my previous school?
Most classes "transfer" to Ohio State, however they may or may not transfer as direct equivalents to the requirements needed for your major at Ohio State. What this means is that you will get credit for courses you have taken, but some may need to be further evaluated by different departments at Ohio State to determine if direct equivalency can be given for the course.
What do I need to do before orientation?
What classes do I take my first semester here at Ohio State?
An advisor will work with you during your transfer orientation to help you select the most appropriate courses for your first semester at Ohio State. It is crucial to have all math credits from any previous institution evaluated long before you come to orientation. Many of the HRS majors require high levels of math, which are key to timely planning of your academic career.
What if I want to take classes at a local area college over the summer?
Check with an advisor WELL BEFORE you take any class at another university. If it is a General Education Course, check the transferology.com
website to see if the course appears on the website.
I work full-time in the day. Can I complete a HRS program at night or on the weekends?
No. SHRS programs are lock-step, meaning courses are only offered one time a year, during a specific semester, and these classes are mostly offered during the day. So, you will not be able to work a full-time schedule and complete a degree in a timely manner in HRS. The exception is Health Sciences-this major does have an online option and it can be completed part-time.
I can only take classes in the afternoon. How will that affect my scheduling?
Some of your classes will only be offered in the morning, while others will only be offered in the afternoon or evening. The key to successful scheduling is being flexible. You may not be able to be a full-time student if you do not have a flexible schedule.
Once I am admitted to the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, does that mean I will automatically be admitted into a major within the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences?
No, even though you have been admitted into the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, you must still go through the application process for the program in which you are interested. Some of the majors are highly competitive. We cannot guarantee that you will be admitted into a major within the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences.
