The "Application Deadline" is the date by which we need to receive all your application materials.
The University of Cincinnati follows two types of admission plans, Early Action and Rolling.
- Early Action is a non-binding plan that gives applicants priority consideration to our more competitive programs. Additionally, students need to apply by the Early Action deadline to be considered for The University Honors Program and merit-based scholarships. There is not a separate application for either of these.
It is recommended that students applying to the following colleges apply via Early Action (applications received after December 1 for these programs will be considered on a space-available basis):
College-Conservatory of Music (CCM)
Musical Theatre applicants are encouraged to complete their application by November 1
College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP)
College of Engineering & Applied Sciences
College of Medicine
College of Nursing
- Rolling means that we accept applications on a space-available basis.
The "Confirmation Deadline" is the date by which we need to receive a response from you regarding your admission decision. You will not be able to enroll in classes until you confirm your admission.
