and Selective Service Registration
If you are a male between the ages of 18-26, you must report your selective service number to the Student Service Center, 1st floor Student Academic Services Building, 281 W.

versus Main Campus Fees
Effective Winter Quarter 2003, the Office of the University Registrar began adjusting official campus of enrollment for students based upon where the majority of the classes are taken. Students will be billed based on the campus where the student is registered for the majority of hours. For students who have been registered through a regional campus, they are only switched to Columbus if they meet the selective admission criteria of 2.0 GPA with 45 cumulative hours. Students who are taking half at a regional and half at the main campus will remain enrolled at the original campus. For details regarding the university policy, "click here" to visit the web site.
If you have any questions regarding the non-resident fee or if you need information regarding your eligibility to be classified as an Ohio resident for tuition surcharge purposes, immediately contact the Student Service Center, 1st floor Student Academic Services Building, 281 W.
