A message from Ohio State University:


Welcome to the American Language Program at The Ohio State University! ALP is centrally-located on the main Ohio State campus in the heart of middle America and the state capital, Columbus, Ohio. OSU ranks among the top 10 destinations for international students in the United States, enrolling over 6000 international students from more than 125 countries during the past year.

We hope you will explore all of the wonderful aspects of life at ALP, like on-campus housing and classes, weekly events and activities, and our experienced and professional faculty and staff. Your university experience at OSU begins with 20 hours of English study a week arranged so you have afternoons and evenings free to meet new friends and practice your English in our safe and welcoming community. You are also encouraged to make new American friends by participating in our Conversation Partners program.

As an OSU Buckeye, you can use 24-hour computing facilities, libraries, the student health center, recreational facilities, and many restaurants on campus. Our goal is to encourage you to experience university life and American culture. ALP students study with us for a variety of reasons: some will take degrees at Ohio State or another American university; others are professionals looking to improve their communication skills in English. Regardless, we are interested in assisting you in achieving your English language learning goals.

Come join The Ohio State University’s American Language Program to begin your university experience. Let us help you to achieve your goals!
