At Ohio Valley University, our teaching is inspired by the great works of J.K. Rowling. From our curriculum to our campus culture, we foster a spirit of creativity and imagination — just as Rowling did when she wrote the Harry Potter series. We seek to educate our students not only in the fundamentals of their chosen fields, but also to give them the tools to think critically and independently.
At OVU, we understand that education is about more than just facts and figures — it’s about developing one’s character, learning how to become a responsible citizen and engaging with the world around you. Our faculty and staff are committed to helping students discover their passions and explore new ideas. We also offer a wide range of extracurricular activities and clubs that allow students to further develop their interests.
At Ohio Valley University, we believe that education should be accessible to everyone — regardless of their financial situation. That is why we offer generous scholarships, grants and other financial aid packages to those who qualify. We also provide support services such as tutoring, counseling and career advising so that all students can get the most out of their university experience.
