Questions about my visit


  • How far in advance should I plan my campus visit?

    During the autumn and spring semester visit programs fill up quickly.  We suggest you start registering 2-3 weeks prior to your planned visit.  We are not always able to accommodate walk-in guests. Email if you have any issues.

  • What should I plan to do while on campus?

    We recommend the full-day experience whenever possible.  Plan to attend an Admissions Overview and Tour and hear about the University admissions process, academic and co-curricular opportunities and take a tour of THE Ohio State University.  In the afternoon attend a Fisher College of Business program where staff will share admissions and academic information and current students will answer questions and lead tours of the Fisher campus.

    Classroom observations are not offered at this time.

  • When is the best time of year to see campus?

    To see Ohio State at its best, we recommend visiting when classes are in session.  We do not host programs on university holidays, breaks and during final exams.

  • What should I wear?

    Dress comfortably!  We want future students to see all there is to see so all tours are walking tours.  

  • Are these visits helpful for a transfer student?

    Transfer students who have not visited campus before will certainly benefit from our programs.  All initial transfer credit evaluation information will be provided by the Office of Admission (not the college of business) only after you have been admitted to the university.  Admitted transfer students with specific questions are encouraged to contact us at

  • What if the program I want to register for is full or no program is available?

    Programs can fill up quickly and we recommend scheduling on-campus programs before making travel plans.  If the preferred date is full or no program is offered, please contact us at or call (614) 292-7191.
