Returning to OSU

If you took a Leave of Absence from Ohio State and are now ready to return, please follow the steps below. Former Ohio State students do not need to reapply to the university.

In order to initiate your reactivation, please complete this online form. This form should be submitted prior to the beginning of the semester for which you are returning. Once the form is submitted, you will receive both a confirmation e-mail and follow up communication regarding your reactivation status. 

Please note, the ability to declare a certain major or pre-major is contingent upon whether or not you meet the minimum GPA requirement for your selected program.

To schedule an appointment with an academic advisor, please call our office at 614-292-9261. When scheduling your appointment, please mention that you are a former student who is planning to return.
