Summer Term - Regional Campus Students

Explore Summer Term Options


Regional campus students have the unique opportunity to continue their work towards graduation while taking classes over the summer. During Summer Term, regional campus students are able to take classes at a regional campus, at Columbus campus, or both.

Students should work with their advisor to identify the right fit for a successful summer.

Tuition and fees will be determined based on the campus where you are taking the majority of your classes (based on credit hours). Note that if you enroll in a majority of classes at Columbus campus, beyond tuition charges, you may also be responsible for Columbus based fees (examples: COTA, Student Union Facility Fee, Student Activity Fee). For more information on fees, please visit http://registrar.osu.edu/FeeTables/MainFeeTables.asp.

If you are a regional campus student and choose to take classes at Columbus campus, you will officially remain a regional campus student. For subsequent semesters, your enrollment will remain on the regional campus until you have applied for and been granted an official campus change.

Students with questions about their Student Financial Aid and how it may apply to Summer Term or taking classes at a different campus should contact Buckeye Link.
