Otterbein University Welcomes Adult and Transfer Students at Upcoming Open House

December 21, 2012

Westerville, OH—Spring semester at Otterbein University starts on Jan. 28, and it’s not too late to apply or get more information. For adult and transfer students interesting in completing their bachelor’s degrees, Otterbein University will host an open house on Jan. 3, with registration at 5:30 p.m. and the program at 6 p.m. in Roush Hall, 27 W. Grove St. To register for the open house, visit www.otterbein.edu/openhouse.

“Otterbein University welcomes adults as they look to complete their bachelor's degrees. As a small liberal arts university with just under 3,000 students, Otterbein is able to give students personal assistance as they continue their educational journeys,” said Dr. Susan Millsap, interim assistant dean for academic affairs at Otterbein.

The Adult and Transfer programs are designed for adults who may be starting their degrees or picking up where they left off. Classes are also offered for those seeking additional professional development in order to advance or change careers. Military veterans are welcome through the Post 9/11 GI Bill Yellow Ribbon program.

The following majors are offered either during the day and evening: business administration, accounting and public accounting, economics, finance, human resources management, management, international business and management, marketing, communication studies, English (literary studies), psychology, teacher licensure and undergraduate degree licensure, liberal studies in accounting, liberal studies in business and liberal studies in leadership (concentrations in organizational communication and psychology of leadership). Over 73 daytime majors and 44 minors are offered.

Otterbein makes it easy for adult, transfer and graduate students to transition to campus life with its Week One 1-Stop adult student resources event. Join us for a cup of coffee during the first week of spring semester, Mon. - Thurs., Jan 28-31, 4:30 - 7 pm in the lower level of Towers Hall, outside of the Registrar's office.

Representatives from many campus offices will be on hand during these extended hours for convenience, such as:

  • Campus Center (student ID)
  • Security (parking permit)
  • Career and Professional Development Services
  • Student Accounts
  • Financial Aid
  • Registrar
  • The Graduate School
  • Adult and Transfer Services

It's a great time to get your questions answered, adjust your schedule or find out more about student and career services.

The campus is conveniently located near the I-71 and I-270 Polaris exit. Classes are small, students receive personal attention and individual advising and the tuition is affordable.
