This is the first University Finder/College Search that is customized to the search criteria of prospective international students. Great for both international students and US students.


In order to simplify and declutter the search & review process, the growing international student community has increasingly requested a platform for searching and reviewing only “real” and “normal” US universities and college (meaning, traditional universities/colleges) that are not “too small” in terms of student population. In Study Destination USA’s customized list of universities & colleges in Ohio you will find:


  • Only accredited US universities and colleges offering a variety of degrees
  • Only Universities & Colleges with a minimum of 1,000 enrolled students
  • No online universities or colleges
  • No for-profit universities or colleges
  • No language schools
  • No vocational schools (aviation, culinary etc.)
  • No religious seminars
  • No military universities/colleges/academies
  • Only traditional ("normal") US universities and colleges


Only available at Study Destination USA, this is a helpful list of US universities and colleges for both US students and international students intending to study for a bachelor's, master's or doctorate (PhD) degree in Ohio.
