Ohio Christian University is committed to offering a complete education that develops students intellectually, professionally, and spiritually. OCU offers degree programs for Traditional Undergraduate students, Graduate students, and Adult and Online students. Additionally, the Trailblazer Academy, allows high school students to complete college classes. All programs are designed to equip students to become leaders in their careers, communities, families, and the world.
OCU was founded in 1948 as Circleville Bible College for the purpose of educating clergy for the Churches of Christ in Christian Union. While remaining true to its founders' vision, Ohio Christian University has expanded its outreach by becoming accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association and the Association for Biblical Higher Education and adding associate, bachelor, and master's degree programs in disciplines such as agribusiness, business administration, disaster management, psychology, and substance abuse counseling.
