Exploration Works: Personalized transfer advising.

Every transfer student experience is unique, and enrolling at a new institution can be challenging. At UC, you won’t navigate this process alone. Whether you're coming from across the country or from one of our local community colleges, we're here to help you through the transfer process. That's why we have a dedicated team of academic advisors assigned to provide personalized, one-on-one counseling to help make your transition to the University of Cincinnati as seamless as possible. We don’t just evaluate your credits—we listen to your story.

Home to nearly 48,000 students across three unique campuses, Cincinnati is a national leader in career-ready education. Today, UC ranks the #1 public university for co-op and internships by U.S. News & World Report. Every UC student puts classroom knowledge to the test–from co-op and internships, to study abroad and service learning, to extensive research and performances, the opportunities are endless. That means Cincinnati’s classroom extends to nearly every corner of the globe, from Fortune 500 companies and innovative startups to trailblazing experiences in places like China, Tanzania, and South America.

Career preparation is at the center of a UC education. Through our Bearcat Promise Career Studio, we prepare students for the world of work with professional development, coaching, and career services. Our students can gain up to 1.5 years of full-time, paid work experience, before they even graduate. No more worrying about needing the experience to get the job, or the job to get the experience. For you, this means graduating with a degree, a full résumé and a plan for your future.

Today, more than 315,000 living alumni count themselves as Bearcats—united not just by their loyalty to UC’s nationally known sports teams but by their common love of the places, the people, and the ideas that make up the University of Cincinnati.
