Graduate programs differ widely. Focus on finding the right fit for you.
When applying for admission to graduate school, please visit Ohio State's Graduate Admissions Office in addition to the program's website of your interest. Some programs have their own admission policies and deadlines. After the graduate school receives your information, they will forward your application to the graduate studies chair of the program to which you applied.
Departmental faculty will review applications and reach an admission decision. They will then forward their decision to the university, who accepts or denies admission based on the department's recommendation and university standards.
