Application for BME Major (Undergraduate)


The Ohio State University admissions process is dedicated to creating a student body with academic strength and a diversity of backgrounds and experiences, to promote the strongest learning environment possible. The central Admissions Office considers a variety of factors in the shaping of a well-rounded freshman class. See:

  • Enrollment in a challenging freshman curriculum (Honors, Scholars, FEH, etc)
  • Bringing cultural, economic, racial or geographic diversity, or being first in their family to attend college
  • Demonstrating an outstanding talent in a particular area
  • Involvement in extracurricular activities, work experience, or leadership positions

  • You are eligible for and will benefit from organized support services at Ohio State
