More Information for Counselors
ACT/SAT Scores: Please keep in mind that standardized test scores are not required for admission to Ohio State Newark; however, they are required for scholarship consideration. Test scores should be sent from the testing agency to the Undergraduate Admissions Office in Columbus.
High School Transcripts: Official high school transcripts should be sent to the Undergraduate Admissions Office in Columbus. Ohio State Newark can not accept and prefers to receive a student’s transcript electronically.
