for High School Students
All students who graduate from a state approved, accredited high school (in Ohio - must have passed all sections of the Ohio Graduation Test in addition to meeting other high school graduation requirements) will receive unconditional acceptance to Shawnee State University by:
- Completing the University admission application, by requesting an application from the Office of Admission or completing the on-line application for admission.
- Submitting a current high school transcript via mail or fax. After graduation, a final transcript must be submitted with an official graduation date. Download and print the High School Transcript Request Form to complete and give to your guidance counselor.
- If a student is under the age of 21, ACT or SAT scores are required.
Application, transcript and test scores should be sent to the following address:
Office of Admission
Shawnee State University

If you attended a non-state approved high school, you must provide evidence of passing the General Equivalency Diploma (GED) or a state-authorized examination that the state recognizes to be the equivalent of a high school diploma.
The Office of Admission is located on the second floor of the University Center (at the top of the stairs). Call 740-351-4778 or 800-959-2SSU to schedule an appointment. Admission Officers are available to personally assist you in the admission process. Daily campus tours are available.
