A complete, official evaluation of all course work reported to OSU will be sent to you once you have been admitted, have paid your $200 advance tuition deposit AND registered for a START Session. Start registration is required for Fall and Summer terms only. This evaluation is referred to as an Advanced Standing Report. The Office of Admissions will not provide an official pre-evaluation of credit before you apply.
Your Advanced Standing Report will reflect all college and university courses taken, as documented from your academic transcripts. The report will show whether or not OSU accepted the course in transfer, and if accepted, how it will be counted at OSU.
If you have any questions regarding your Advanced Standing Report or OSU's transfer evaluation process, contact the Office of Admissions at 800-291-4192.
If you transfer to OSU from a community or junior college, up to 124 quarter credits (82 semester units) may be accepted toward your bachelor's degree. If the school you previously attended used the semester system, one semester credit equals 1.5 quarter credits at OSU.
OSU also accepts up to 12 hours of Professional/Technical credit. These hours are included when figuring your level (e.g. freshman, sophmore) and the total credits completed. They are not included in your GPA. Remedial courses are not considered in Professional/Technical hours.
The above information also applies to students who will attend only Ecampus. However, Ecampus students attend online orientation and do not attend START.
