Announcement: Extreme Passport Processing Delays

Apply for your passport as early as possible.
Passports are required for every Ohio State global education program. Although passports are not required for the global education application, due to extreme delays in processing time (up to 14 weeks after submission) we strongly urge applicants to apply as soon as possible for their passports. Participation withdrawal from a program due to not having a valid Passport will result in a cancellation fee.
 
First-time passport applicants can take advantage of the Franklin County Clerk of Courts “One-Stop-Passport-Shop.” And for passport renewals, please refer to the steps on the US Department of State’s Website.
 
For information about applying for a passport, go to travel.state.gov.
