Course Registration

Students are responsible for knowing and observing Ohio State registration and payment deadlines available through the Registrar and Graduate School.

Students provisionally admitted to Ohio State must submit the final and official transcript(s) from the institution(s) at which they have been completing a degree or other required course work. Students should request that the transcripts be sent directly to Graduate Admissions. Failure to do so will result in a hold on their account, which prevents current and future registration.
