Domestic travel: For employees and some students, a self-quarantine is now required is you enter Ohio from a state with a high positive test rate for COVID-19.

Fall semester kickoff events: Events for new and returning students begin in early August.

Facial shields: Facial shields without a face covering are not permitted, except when an accommodation has been approved. More.

Online fee charge is waived. The $15 per credit hour charge for online courses has been waived for the Fall 2020 semester due to COVID-19. We appreciate your patience as we make these corrections to student bills.
