The new four-week May Session encourages students to experience a class topic outside of their current edcuational track to expand their horizons. Those students who pay for the spring semester and won’t yet graduate will receive three free credit hours for the session — one more way Ohio State is ensuring students get the most for their educational dollar.
More than 130 courses are available in the session, which is considered the first part of summer term, including some required courses for students’ majors.
Students won’t be responsible for General and Instructional Fees and Non-Residency Fees, but they will have to pay all other fees, including the extra tuition fees for a course that is greater than three credit hours.
Regional campus students who have completed at least 30 credit hours and have maintained a minimum 2.0 GPA are eligible to come to the Columbus campus to attend the May Session.
The colleges of Arts and Sciences; Engineering; Education and Human Ecology; Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences; Nursing; Public Health; and Social Work have contributed courses to the May Session. A complete list can be found at oaa.osu.edu.
There will be 40 study abroad programs offered during the May Session as well for first- and second-year students of any major. Destinations include Uganda, Hungary, Brazil, India, Mexico, China and Britain.
