The Ohio State University Diversion Program

What is The Ohio State University Diversion Program?

The Ohio State University Diversion Program is a risk-reduction program that views safety and wellbeing as the top priority for students. The Ohio State University Diversion Program is required for Ohio State students who are seeking to complete the educational component of a diversion program.  The Ohio State University Diversion Program is also open to other Ohio State students who are looking to explore their alcohol use. 

The Ohio State University Diversion Program is made up of two parts: an in-person program and an online reflection. Participants fully complete The Ohio State University Diversion Program by 1) completing the in-person session; 2) completing the online reflection; and 3) paying the $125.00 non-refundable fee. Payment is required at the in-person session. BuckID cash is the only accepted form of payment.

Only by completing these three steps will the participant receive a letter confirming completion of The Ohio State University Diversion Program; this letter is sent from the diversion program facilitator via email to the participant and their respective legal representative.

The Ohio State University Diversion Program will take place on a Tuesday and the post-session reflection will be due by the following Monday at 11:59 p.m.   Upon completion of the reflection, certifications of completion will be emailed by 5 p.m. on the following Tuesday.
