About Ohio State Mansfield

The Ohio State University at Mansfield has proudly served Northeast Ohio for more than 50 years as a regional campus of The Ohio State University. Ohio State Mansfield fulfills our land grant mission set forth by the Morrill Act in 1862 to provide open access to higher education for all Ohioans.

Local citizens Avery Hand and James C. Gorman led a grassroots campaign to raise funding to purchase 640 acres of picturesque woodlands north of Mansfield. The campus has grown through the years to include high-tech classrooms, a cafeteria, cafe and student union, theatre facilities, recreation complex and a state-of-the-art Bromfield Library and Information Commons. North Central State College is a valued partner on campus.

The Ohio State University at Mansfield is quickly becoming the college of choice for students throughout Northeast Ohio. Affordability, excellence in teaching, small class sizes and opportunities for research and internships draw students.

Students may complete one of ten bachelor’s degrees offered at Ohio State Mansfield—Business, Child & Youth Studies, Criminology, Early Childhood Education, Middle Childhood Education, English, History, Psychology, Social Work or Sociology, or start at Mansfield and transition to the Columbus campus after a year or two. Master’s degrees also are offered in Education.

For most students, it’s the small class sizes taught by award-winning faculty rather than graduate students that is the main draw. The entire faculty at Ohio State Mansfield has obtained terminal degrees; 97 percent hold doctorate degrees. Many are conducting groundbreaking research in addition to teaching classes. Students often create their own research projects with faculty mentoring.

An excellent student support system, from Admissions and Advising to the writing and math labs, gives students a jump start to college life.

Tuition is just $7,644 full-time for two semesters. Low cost on- and off-campus student housing is available within walking distance of the campus.

Local businesses actively support the Mansfield Campus Business and Industry Internship Program, which partners college students with real-world experience in the workplace.
