Fall 2021 students must apply to BGSU by January 15 and submit all admission credentials by May 1 for automatic consideration based on their official GPA and ACT/SAT results. Students who do not submit a test score due to difficulties caused by COVID-19, will be considered for these scholarships based on their cumulative GPA.

Virtual Resources for Your Students
What does a "virtual" college search look like? We’re answering that question with your students in mind, knowing that even though things are different now, their college search still needs to move forward.
Please join us in encouraging your students to participate in our virtual events because now is the time to start gathering information, even if virtual events aren't their preferred way to approach the college search.
On this site, students will find a full offering of virtual experiences – check back often, as we’re adding new events and resources regularly. This is a great place for students to start!
We want to make sure students are getting all the information they need. The best way to do that is to attend our virtual information sessions. We’re dedicating time each day to connecting with students. This site offers a full calendar of offerings including admissions, scholarships, financial aid and academic presentations.
Students who are new to BGSU or just starting their college search should start with the Go BG! Admissions Information Session. This is the first step to learning more about BGSU.
Every student interested in BGSU has a team of representatives ready to help. Their Admissions Counselor is ready to provide you the information they need about applying, financial aid, housing and next steps. Looking for more information about a major or program? Students can connect with the representative from the majors they’re interested in – they’re part of the BGSU College Search Team, too, and are offering virtual one-on-one appointments, information sessions, tours and more.
In-person tours of residence halls will not be available for the foreseeable future in order to ensure the safety of our guests and BGSU community. Instead, we recommend students explore our residence halls using the 360 Residence Hall Tours.
We’re pleased to offer small and personalized in-person visits on our beautiful campus in Bowling Green, Ohio. These opportunities are extremely limited, and we ask that students reach out to their personal Admissions Counselor to start a conversation about a reservation
