ATTENTION SENIORS APPLYING TO OSU!!!
NOVEMBER 1 is an important deadline if you are applying to OSU Main Campus. Nov. 1 is the "Early Action" deadline for freshman applicants. When applying, be sure you indicate on the common application that your are applying "Early Action". This will ensure that you receive a decision by mid-December. MORE IMPORTANTLY, this will give you maximum opportunity to receive financial aid. Note that the not only the application, but all other required items (official test scores, transcripts and letters of recommendation) must be in by the Nov. 1 deadline. Please do not wait until the last minute to apply!
The regular decision deadline for OSU Columbus is Feb. 1. This deadline will allow you to be considered for admission, but will not give you the best opportunity for financial aid. No matter when you apply, remember that you must apply online using the common application. Go to: apply.osu.edu to get started. Please see your guidance counselor if you have questions.
