The Ohio Public Universities Admissions Council is comprised of the directors of admission from the 13 undergraduate degree granting universities across the state. This council produces an annual guide for school counselors, conducts presentations about our institutions to school counselors and other key stakeholders, and serves as a resource for undergraduate admissions-related topics in the state of Ohio.

The 13 public universities represent a diverse group of institutions serving more than 500,000 students annually and award approximately 95,000 associates and bachelor’s degrees each year. The undergraduate population ranges from approximately 2,000 students to more than 53,600 students. Many of our institutions provide students with a more mid-sized experience, with eight of the universities enrolling between 10,000 and 17,000 undergraduates. These public universities also include one of the nation’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU). Each of these universities is focused on affordability, especially for Ohio residents, offering need-based aid and merit scholarships as well as pricing options that keep tuition costs low.
