Home to nearly 50,000 students, the University of Cincinnati has been named among the “Best National Universities” by U.S. News & World Report. Let’s face it. College is one of the most important investments you’ll ever make. And a Cincinnati education offers one of the most valuable ROI’s in higher education. How? By putting education into action through an unparalleled commitment to experience-based learning and career preparation.

Thousands of students transfer to UC every year, so you won’t be on this journey alone. We'll work to create and sustain a culture of welcome, belonging, and support for students in transition. Our personalized, one-on-one transfer advising will help you along every step of the process.

The University of Cincinnati invented cooperative education (co-op) over 100 years ago, and today ranks among the best universities in the nation for co-op and internships. Students rotate semesters in the classroom and working paid, full-time positions in their field of study. And 100% of UC students have access to experience-based learning opportunities. That means our classrooms extend 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. UC co-op students earn a collective $58 million annually working for thousands of employers including Microsoft, Disney, Apple, NASA, Procter & Gamble, and many more.

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. For you, this means graduating with a degree, a full résumé, and a plan for your future.
