We know that visiting campus is one of the best ways to decide whether a college is the right fit for you. However, to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, the BGSU Office of Admissions is not offering daily on-campus visits, events or appointments. While we're not available in person, we know some things still need to move forward, including your college search.

We want to make sure you’re getting all the information you need as you’re looking ahead to your first year at BGSU.
For us, that means dedicating time each day to connecting with you. With this in mind, we’re excited to share a full lineup of virtual events and a number of different online resources – all developed with you in mind.

Please know that the BGSU Office of Admissions is excited and ready to connect with you because we know this is an important time in your college search. And of course, we hope you’ll consider visiting us at a time that’s convenient for you in the future. We’re here for you at 419-372-2478 and choosebgsu@bgsu.edu.
