The Ohio State system includes four regional campuses -- in Lima, Mansfield, Marion and Newark -- and the Agricultural Technical Institute (ATI) in Wooster.
The university's regional campuses offer the opportunity to earn an associate’s degree or to complete the full curriculum required for a bachelor’s degree in a number of regional campus specialties.
Or, students have the option of pursuing the Campus Change Program: they can attend a regional campus and successfully complete one year of course work toward any degree program offered on Ohio State’s Columbus campus. Once they have 30 or more semester hours (or the equivalent) with a 2.0 or better GPA, they will be eligible for consideration to change to the Columbus campus.
Ohio State's agricultural legacy extends to Wooster, where ATI offers 33 majors or "technologies" leading to associate's degrees and certificate programs in hydraulics and turf equipment. ATI combines general education courses with hands-on classes, providing state-of-the-art technical and business preparation.
Each of Ohio State's regional campuses and ATI has an open admissions policy for Ohio resident freshmen. Learn more about Ohio State's regional campuses and ATI, including contact information.
