Discussion of Ohio University's Admissions Standards:

Ohio University's admissions aren't painfully selective, but you will need solid grades and test scores to get in. For the class entering in 2015, 74% of applicants were admitted. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students. Successful applicants typically have high school averages of "B" or better, combined SAT scores of 1000 or higher, and ACT composite scores of 20 or better.

You'll notice a few red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) mixed in with the green and blue throughout the graph, especially on the left-hand side. Some students with grades and test scores that were on target for Ohio University were not admitted. On the other hand, you can see that some students were admitted with grades and test scores that were a bit below the norm. This is because Ohio's admissions process is not a simple numerical formula. The admissions folks will want to see that you have taken rigorous college preparatory courses, not courses that get you an easy "A." Also, Ohio University's website states that "particular attention is paid to performance the junior year of high school, with consideration made for grade improvements or declines." Also, some programs at Ohio University are more selective than general admission. Students applying for business or journalism will need particularly strong grades and test scores. Finally, Ohio gives applicants the option of submitted additional application materials such as recommendations, extracurricular activity information, and lists of awards or achievements. These optional materials could clearly strengthen an application.
