Key initiatives

Ohio State Seal

Ohio State is proud to be a leader in making an excellent college education accessible and affordable for all students by controlling costs, increasing aid for low- and moderate-income families, and enhancing programs that support success in and out of the classroom. With a focus on three core promises of affordability quality, and accountability, the Office of Strategic Enrollment Management supports success initiatives that span a student’s enrollment cycle, from enrollment through graduation.

Strategic Enrollment Management Plan

The Strategic Enrollment Management Plan is developed through a comprehensive approach that focuses on a student’s entire journey at Ohio State, from the university’s initial encounter with a student to recruitment, admissions, progression, graduation and post-graduation.
