The Office of International Affairs (OIA) is committed to supporting our international student population. OIA has created answers to frequently asked questions to help clarify areas of concern regarding Autumn 2020:

We anticipate that the Student Exchange Visitor Program will publish additional details in the coming weeks, and the Office of International Affairs will continue to provide updates as new information becomes available. 

Ohio State is planning for a variety of course options and formats that will allow classes to resume autumn semester under conditions that enhance physical distancing. Some classes will be fully in person, some will be offered fully online and some will use a blended approach. The university is committed to providing the best possible academic experience for all of our students, including our international students. 

Please review the FAQs we have prepared. Additional guidance can be viewed at Ohio State’s Safe and Healthy Buckeyes website.
