If you’re currently attending a regional campus and would like to relocate to Columbus, there are a few steps to follow. Students enrolled at an Ohio State regional campus must meet the campus change requirements before starting on the Columbus campus.
Students interested in HRS on the Columbus campus must complete a minimum of 30 earned hours after high school graduation and have earned at least a 2.0 cumulative Ohio State GPA. Please note that meeting minimum requirements does not guarantee admission into an HRS undergraduate program.
Meet With an Academic Advisor
To change campuses, students are required to meet with an academic advisor on the regional campus to initiate a campus-change form. You may begin the campus change process with your regional advisor while you’re completing the requirements to change to the Columbus campus, but the advisor will not process the campus change request until all requirements have been met. The campus change decision will be sent to your Ohio State e-mail address.
Register for Columbus Campus Classes
Registering for classes at the Columbus campus is done through BuckeyeLink and should happen as soon as your enrollment appointment opens. Students should work with their regional advisor, but registering for classes on the Columbus campus is very similar to registering on regional campuses. One exception may be understanding how the lecture/recitation pairings work (read about this under What to expect on the Columbus campus).
Regional campus students who have completed most or all prerequisites and meet the minimum GPA for your intended HRS program can apply directly to the program. For application information, please visit Graduate and Professional Admissions.
