Thank you for your interest in getting an OSC account.
Please click on the link below that best describes you to determine the OSC account type for which you are eligible. You will be taken to the correct application information form.
Ohio Academic Client - I am a faculty member or research scientist who maintains a full-time position at an Ohio academic institution. Ohio Academic Clients are eligible for highly subsidized access to OSC resources, with fees generally only being charged above certain resource thresholds. These clients must submit a proposal that is potentially peer-reviewed and/or approved by their host institution. More information is available here.
Other Client - I am a business, non-Ohio academic, nonprofit, hospital, or other organization. All clients not affiliated with and approved by an Ohio academic institution must sign a service agreement, provide a $500 deposit, and pay for resource usage per a standard price list. Such clients do not need to be based in Ohio.
