New pre-major transfer students admitted to The Ohio State University through Undergraduate Admissions are directly enrolled in HRS (transfer or first-time) are considered pre-majors and must follow the application procedure and deadlines for admission into the desired major. This procedure includes the completion of prerequisite courses, achievement of the required and competitive grade point average, and any other requirements stipulated for the major. Other admission criteria vary depending on the major. Some majors may have admission criteria that include an interview or observation hours. Visit each department's admissions page to learn more and remember that admission is competitive.

Most of our programs are "lock-step," meaning that many important courses need to be taken in sequential order, and often those courses are only available once per year. This means that careful planning with an assigned academic advisor is critical. Even so, there is always the chance that the completion of the program can be longer than anticipated.

New transfer students who have completed all of their prerequisites and application requirements can apply directly to a SHRS major through the Graduate & Professional Admissions Office.
