Antioch University in Affiliation

In July 2022, Antioch University and Otterbein University announced their intention to create a strategic affiliation between our mission-shared institutions and begin building an independent university system grounded in democratizing education to prepare students to advance social justice, democracy, and the common good, with a focus on graduate and adult-learner programs.

As a private, not-for-profit university system, we will expand degree offerings, offer programs in more locations nationwide, provide innovative learning modalities including online, low-residency, and hybrid settings, create new opportunities for student engagement across institutions, and enhance institutional capacities and contain costs through selected shared services.

As an Antioch student, your program will remain as described in this catalog. Your degree will be conferred from Antioch University. What will change in the coming years may be access to new program pathways and more degree options. You may also, in the course of your studies, meet an Otterbein student who is studying for a semester on an Antioch campus or in an Antioch program. Antioch will gradually take over management of Otterbein’s graduate programs in such fields as allied health and nursing. Finally, Antioch University will begin offering selected programs such as the Doctor of Education and the MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Otterbein’s beautiful Ohio campus. The affiliation does not affect your financial aid package in any way.

As of the publishing of this catalog, the affiliation remains under development. Information about the affiliation may be found on Antioch’s website here. As arrangements are finalized, new information will be added to this site.
