The Ohio State University at Newark


Will it be you to join a transformational experience program?


If you are a second-year student who graduated from high school between October 2019–September 2020, you are eligible to join Ohio State’s college success program for 2021-2022. Fill out the survey below to indicate your interest and we will be in touch.

STEP students meet weekly in the autumn with a faculty mentor and a group of peers to develop personal and professional skills. In the spring they apply for up to $2,000 in funds to pay for study abroad, an internship, creative activities, leadership training or service learning work.

If you plan to be primarily on the Columbus campus next year, you can apply to be a STEP participant ON THE COLUMBUS CAMPUS by making sure the “I’m interested” box is checked on your housing renewal form that you will receive via your university e-mail in February.
