3. Complete after-session Orientation items.

Although the main content of orientation is presented in your opening orientation session, there are many items to still complete (like going through this checklist) to ensure you are ready for your meeting with your Academic Advisor and for the semester to begin. After the online opening session, complete the following:

    1. Select or waive student health insurance (if you have not already done so). All undergraduate students at Ohio State who are enrolled in at least six credit hours (part-time) are required to have health insurance coverage. You are automatically enrolled in the university’s comprehensive student health insurance plan, and a fee will appear on your statement of account each semester. Remember, if you choose to waive (opt-out) of student health insurance, you must provide proof your coverage under another insurance plan.
    2. Set up your Carmen profile
    3. Learn about parking options. A parking permit is required to park on-campus at Ohio State. Learn how to access your parking options from this presentation by Ohio State’s parking vendor CampusParc: Transfer_CampusExchangeStudent_Slides.
    4. Download the Ohio State mobile app.
    5. Review the orientation supplemental schedule for additional opportunities to learn more about Ohio State resources and offices that aid in new student transition.
