Step 1 - Complete Online Orientation

STOP! Have you accepted your admission yet? If you haven't yet done so, please log in to the Applicant Center and accept your offer of admission before proceeding.

Completing this online orientation is highly encouraged for students new to the university or returning after a long absence. If you are a returning student and are familiar with resources such as My Buckeye Link, and already have your Ohio State username and BuckeyeMail, you may continue to Step 4.

The online orientation will help you become familiar with Ohio State resources such as My Buckeye Link (where you will register for courses, pay course fees and complete other essential tasks as a student), BuckID, CampusParc, Disability Services, University Libraries, financial aid, purchasing books, CarmenCanvas (the online course management system instructors use to create and share course materials) and various other tools and policies. Pay close attention to the time sensitive topics such as paying tuition and fees and adding or dropping courses.

After you complete the orientation, please submit the form at the end as a record of your completion, then continue to Step 2.
