Ohio GI Promise

The Ohio GI Promise seeks to make Ohio the most veteran-friendly state in the country for higher education. To encourage veterans from across America to bring their families, leadership, motivation and maturity to Ohio's colleges and universities, Gov. Strickland, as part of the executive order creating the Ohio GI Promise, outlined criteria that would allow qualified veterans, and their dependents, from anywhere in the country to skip the 12-month residency requirement and attend University System of Ohio schools at in-state tuition rates.

By demonstrating at least one year of honorable service and upon establishing domicile in Ohio, veterans and their families will be immediately treated as in-state residents for tuition, state educational subsidies, and financial aid purposes.  Ohio State University is pleased to offer this opportunity to our nation's veterans.
