You can apply online at https://www.owens.edu and click on How to Apply. Log into the application. If you are not a US citizen, please choose the "International Application". All other students may choose the "New Student Application". In the application, you will be asked to give information about how you would describe yourself as a student at Owens. Please choose Transient if you are enrolled at another accredited college or university and intend to apply your Owens Community College credits to a degree from your home institution. Choose Guest if you are taking classes for personal enrichment or for work purposes. Choosing the correct option will help to make the process of registering for classes as smooth as possible.
As a comprehensive community college, Owens works with baccalaureate-granting colleges and universities to assist students to ensure the efficient and effective movement of students and courses among institutions. Owens has articulation agreements signed with many colleges and universities, but classes will also transfer to many other institutions. It is your responsibility to meet with an academic advisor from your intended college or university to discuss courses that will transfer and apply to the program of interest. Unofficial transfer course equivalency information can also be found by visiting https://transferology.com/.
Visiting students are those interested in attending Owens for a short period of time and are considered non-degree seeking. There are two types of visiting students: transient and guest. Transient students are those who are enrolled at another accredited college or university and intend to apply their Owens Community College credits to a degree from their home institution.
Guest students are those who are taking a limited number of courses for credit or personal interest.
Please refer to the course description for specific pre/co-requisite information. If your official documents (transcripts, test scores, high school transcript, etc.) have already been received and evaluated, courses may not have transferred in as the direct equivalent of the required pre/co-requisite. You can review official transfer credit information in your Ozone account under the View Transcript link on the Academic Info tab.
If we have not yet received your official documents, please fill out the Visiting Student Request Form so your request to take a course without the pre/co-requisite on file can be reviewed.
In some cases, transfer credits may not satisfy pre/co-requisite requirements for courses you plan to take at Owens. If this is the case, you have the option to take the ACCUPLACER placement test to evaluate your skills for appropriate course placement in math, reading, and writing. Visit the Testing Services website for more information.
Official transcripts can be mailed to:
Owens Community College
PO Box 10,000
Toledo, OH 43699-1947
If your official documents will not be received prior to classes starting at Owens, and you are unable to register due to pre/co-requisite errors, please submit the Visiting Student Request Form to show unofficial proof of previous coursework until your official documents are received.
For more information regarding the evaluation of transfer credit, please visit https://www.owens.edu/records/transfer-credit.html
Please note that in order for transcripts to be considered official, they must be in a sealed envelope from the home institution.

This class requires that you register for an additional class (generally a lab and/or clinical). You are unable to take a lab or lecture separate from each other. You will need to choose a lab and lecture section of the class and register for them at the same time. For certain courses, there is a specific lab assigned to a specific lecture class. You will find this information on the course schedule.
You may also be getting this error if you are registering for a lab and lecture at two different campuses. You must register for a lecture and lab on the same campus.
