Depending on your major, OCU can offer either a satisfactory or challenging path to complete your degree. I entered OCU to earn a degree in English. Unfortunately, the degree is so new that the elective selection is poor while senior standard classes need further development and better organization. For example, in the last three weeks of my Senior Capatone class the instructor disappeared and the weekly handouts were incomplete. With that said, it’s imperative that potential students ensure that their majors have been established at OCU before enrolling. On the bright side, in classes where the instructors and materials are prepared the classes run smoothly.

I have had a wonderful powerful and spiritual learning experience! I've learned so much already about Christianity and the bible. I have learned excellent life skills such as financial freedom, Christian time management and so much more that I was never taught in my 22 years of living. The only negative aspect of OCU is the financial aid. The couple semesters I've been here it has been a hassle getting my financial aid situated. That is the only very thing I would love to change or improve in their system.
Through dual enrollment, I have taken four courses through Ohio Christian University. The courses were well taught, and had a reasonable work load. I've had a little bit of trouble with some of the professors (not answering emails or reviewing my papers on time). Additionally, their online tests do not always work right. However, I have loved the experience so far. Even with the minor issues, I've decided to major there in 2019. Visiting the campus really sealed the deal. The staff are so nice and helpful. The campus is beautiful and extremely safe. They offer quality education for a reasonable price. Also, their scholarships will be of great aid to myself.
