Absolute placement

Of all the questions parents ask during the college search, “Will my child get a job?” is usually right at the top. It also happens to be the question Ohio Northern University admissions counselors like to answer most, because the numbers don’t lie. In 2016, 13 ONU academic programs had 100% placement. The University as a whole boasted 94% undergrad placement. This is well above the national average.
