+Our application review is comprehensive. We encourage students to apply with their current qualifications, and not take any courses just to meet the admission requirements if they can provide a solid rationale describing how their academic performance in prior degrees meets the admission requirements. Please refer to the admission FAQ.
++Courses unavailable or marked as LDT or UDT on the transfer course search will go through an evaluation to verify their equivalence to OSU courses.
Note: According to university requirements, students cannot earn a post-baccalaureate degree in the same field of their prior degree.
