The University of Cincinnati offers students a balance of educational excellence and real-world experience. UC is a public research university with an enrollment of nearly 47,000 students and has been named among the top-tier “Best National Universities" by U.S. News & World Report.

Today, more than 300,000 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 place, the people, and the ideas that make up the University of Cincinnati.

UC invented cooperative education, or “co-op,” in 1906 and has remained a global leader in experience-based learning ever since. Today, Cincinnati’s classroom extends to nearly every corner of the globe, from Fortune 500 companies to trailblazing experiences in places like China, Tanzania, and South America. UC’s co-op program is ranked among the nation’s top five, and students earn a collective $58 million annually working for thousands of employers including GE Aviation, Disney, Toyota, Kroger, Procter & Gamble, and many more.

Career preparation is at the center of UC’s “push forward” philosophy, exemplified by the Bearcat Promise, a tech- and human-supported guide that helps students graduate with a degree in one hand and a career plan in the other.

We foster an ecosystem of transfer, transition, and non-matriculated student success by providing equal access to quality advising, personalized referrals, and innovative programming at UC.
