Program Overview

The CSP program is a full time, cohort-based program. The curriculum integrates theory and practice, blending courses in student development theory, student affairs administration, counseling, and higher education with hands-on experience in student affairs offices at Ohio University as well as neighboring institutions.

Most positions in the CSP program include a graduate assistantship (GA) in Student Affairs or another academic or administrative office at Ohio University. Admission to the CSP program and GA assignments are made independently. Admission decisions are made by the HESA faculty, while all decisions concerning GA positions are made by university administrators following our Interview Weekend. Interview Weekend takes place in Athens, Ohio each February.
