Online Program Application Fee Waived for Ohio State Alumni

Earn your next OSU degree as an Alum!

Buckeye alumni can apply to any Ohio State online degree or certificate program for free, thanks to a partnership between The Ohio State University Alumni Association, the Office of Graduate and Professional Admissions and the Office of Distance Education and eLearning.  

Ohio State will waive the $60 application fee to any Ohio State Online program for alumni who are ready to advance their career or enter a new field. Eligible students should check the "Alumni online program applicants" fee waiver box on their admission application. Please note: This fee waiver applies only to the university's application fee and does not include program-specific fees.

“I am excited to continue providing meaningful and affordable access to Ohio State and eliminate a potential barrier that will support our Buckeye alumni in achieving their personal and professional goals," said Rob Griffiths, Associate Vice President of Distance Education. "This benefit showcases the power of partnerships to advance Buckeye Nation.”
