If you attend another college or university and would like to take classes that will transfer back to your home institution, apply as a visiting student at Ohio Northern University. A visiting student is often called a transient student, since you will only attend ONU for a short time.

SUMMER SCHOOL REGISTRATION STEPS FOR VISITING/TRANSIENT STUDENTS
STEP 1: APPLY TO ONU
Submit a free online application by selecting visiting/transient application. Make sure to indicate that you are applying as a transient student.
STEP 2: SEND YOUR UNIVERSITY’S TRANSIENT PERMISSION FORM TO ONU
Once you know which courses you want to take at ONU, obtain a Transient Permission Form or letter of permission from the university in which you currently attend. (If your school does not have a Transient Permission Form, please use this form.) Your advisor or the registrar’s office will be able to assist you with this form, which must list the ONU courses you are permitted to take and contain your institution’s signature of approval. You can email the completed transient permission form to ONU’s Office of the Registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org. The transient permission form will ensure that once you have successfully completed the course(s) at Ohio Northern University, your home institution will accept them.
STEP 3: REGISTER FOR CLASSES
After you are accepted to attend ONU, the Office of Admissions will send you, via U.S. mail, a letter of acceptance with your ONU email account username and password. Also, once you are admitted, ONU will register you for the classes you indicated on your Transient Permission Form. A confirmation of your course registration will be sent to your ONU email address. Registration questions should be directed to Wilson Turner, university registrar, at email@example.com.
STEP 4: PAY TUITION AND FEES
Your registration is not complete until you pay your tuition and fees. There is a payment deadline for each term. Pay your bill or make other arrangements with the bursar’s office before the payment deadline.
STEP 5: GET YOUR ONU ID CARD
You will need your ONU ID card to conduct business on campus. You can get your picture taken and have your card printed at the Department of Public Safety after you have registered for courses and arrive on ONU's campus.
STEP 6: IN AUGUST, SEND YOUR TRANSCRIPT TO YOUR HOME SCHOOL
At the end of the semester, please request to have your grades sent to your home college or university. Transcripts can be requested at the National Student Clearinghouse. You will need your ONU ID number when placing the order.
