Correctional Education is an educational program for incarcerated students offered by Ohio University. Through print-based courses, students can earn college credit and work toward an Ohio University degree. Staff is dedicated to working with students and their families to provide college-level courses, degree programs, and certificates in a print-based format that is acceptable in most prison facilities. All communication takes place through the postal system, including advising, invoicing, shipping course materials, submitting lessons, and receiving grades. Once a student has been admitted to the program, an academic advisor is assigned. Students will receive a welcome packet explaining details of the program and recommendations for courses. The academic advisor provides direction on the course or degree selection and requirements, information on general processes, and a personal connection to the University. Students will write to their academic advisors regularly to advise them of changes or challenges they are experiencing.
